Nothing mentioned, nothing gained

About/Contact

Naomi Elster is a pharmacologist and will soon have a PhD in cancer medicine. Her research so far has led to a clinical trial for advanced breast cancer which was highlighted as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in 2015.

Her fiction, poetry and journalism have been published internationally, including in The Guardian, Crannóg Magazine, and Sentinel Literary Quarterly.

She co-founded the mental health-themed creative magazine, HeadSpace, which was set up to address the lack of understanding of mental health issues in Ireland, the lack of reading material in wards and waiting rooms, and the lack of a creative platform for people to express their experiences during times of mental health difficulty or after an improvement. She led three general issues of HeadSpace, which was distributed to psychiatric and general hospitals, clinics and community/peer support groups across Ireland and in the UK, and came to be highly regarded for its creative content and production values. She taught creative writing in St Patrick’s Psychiatric Hospital, and her first play, Scabs, was staged in 2013 as part of the 10 Days in Dublin arts festival and then at Theatre Upstairs.
