About Me

Welcome! I am a writer with eclectic interests, but I have a particular love of short stories. I’ve written about and reviewed short fiction – both old and new – for publications including The Short Story, Hortus and Slightly Foxed. My short stories have won the Bridport Prize and a UK Society of Authors’ Tom-Gallon Award, and have appeared in literary magazines such as Prole, FlashBack Fiction and The Honest Ulsterman. As a sociologist, I've also conducted qualitative research about various topics and, more recently, have written about how storytelling and fiction can be used in academic research.

"[Becky Tipper's 'The Rabbit' is] an immediately likeable story, beautifully crafted, elegantly written with all the arts of a born storyteller... A writer of real promise."


"The flash fiction pieces were extremely penetrating and confident… Becky Tipper’s 'Meeting the Lobster' genuinely takes the reader through a journey of increasing emotional identification..."


"[Becky Tipper's] 'Birth Stories'... is a truly excellent piece of writing... Anybody who has ever trotted out the cliché 'all that matters is a healthy baby' should be made to read this work..."
