Rachelle Atalla

Rachelle Atalla is a Scottish-Egyptian novelist, short story writer and screenwriter based in Glasgow, who previously worked as a community pharmacist for a decade. Thankfully she has yet to be locked in a bunker, but there is still time. Her short stories have been published widely in literary anthologies; she is the recipient of a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award and co-edits New Writing Scotland. Her first short film screenplay Trifle was commissioned by the Scottish Film & Talent Network, and most recently Rachelle was selected to participate in the 2021 Young Films Foundation Skye residency programme, developing her first feature length screenplay with BBC Films.
