Author's Bio

Philip is a winner of the Big Pond Rumours Press Chapbook Prize 2018 for the short story collection Hunger and Hallelujahs, due for publication in May 2018. In 2017 his experimental epistolary novella Dreaming in Starlight was published by CTU Publishing Group. His writing can be found in dozens of journals in ten countries, some of which has been nominated for The Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net.

Philip Elliott is the founder and editor-in-chief of award-winning international literary magazine Into the Void, which won Best Magazine in the 2017 Saboteur Awards and is shortlisted for it again this year. Into the Void was included in ‘Nine New Lit Mags You Need to Read’ as one of “nine new journals that appeared on the scene within the past couple of years and have already made their mark on the literary landscape” in Poets & Writers. Into the Void has since received excellent reviews in venues such as The Review Review and NewPages, and many of its contributors are winners and finalists of awards for their pieces published in Into the Void. Into the Void is also a publisher of fiction and poetry chapbooks through Into the Void Press.

Philip provides affordable, top quality editing services under the banner of Paragon Editing Services. He has a degree in Ancient Classics from Maynooth University, and lives in Toronto with his wife and their spoiled pug.
