About me
I am passionate about engagement, particularly learning in young people. I am an ambassador for the fact that learning and teaching English is relevant and vital to developing ever important critical thinking skills. I seek to push the existing boundaries of what is considered as 'literary' and bring an analytical and academic eye to pop culture. I am a big supporter of Penguin Random House and the innovative steps they have taken with things like Penguin Live and Merky Books. In 2018, I was longlisted to the final 150 out of 1,700 applicants for the Penguin WriteNow scheme. I have a flair for analysis. My writing spans articles and blogposts (reviews, social commentary, think pieces), poetry and short fiction. I was recently published on Black Ballad for my review of Arinzé Kene's 'Misty'. My sharp eye for detail is often called upon for proofreading services. Making worlds collide is what I do. Bringing seemingly separate worlds together to produce something innovative, whether that is in the form of events, literature or collaborative projects. I enjoy working with ideas and welcome any opportunity that allows me to do this.
