"Walking into a new classroom"
I am a BA Creative Writing student from Manchester and studying at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk, graduating in Summer 2021. With a keen interest in poetry and short fiction, I enjoy exploring all forms of media, especially those that are innovative and experimental. Although I’m new to the writing world, I’ve had the privilege of taking part in the Edge Hill Prize short story shortlist (2019), working with Writing On The Wall as part of the Superheroes: Words Are Our Power project (2019) and working as an intern with Edge Hill University Press and Arc Publishing (2019) editing an anthology of poetry from women in Latin America, publishing in 2021. I am an Edge Hill Scholar, receiving a scholarship for Excellence, and outside of writing I work for the Edge Hill Campus Life Team as Campus Connector, organising student events and supporting the wellbeing of students.
