As I have always worked for start-ups or small companies, I'm used to working hard, managing my own time, motivating myself and being proactive. Therefore I am an incredibly reliable freelance writer and editor who likes to create a positive (and fun!) working environment with those I collaborate with.

    BA in English Literature with Creative WritingUniversity of East Anglia
     - Norwich, United Kingdom
    I studied at the UK's top creative writing school. I focused my studies to include as much creative writing as possible in both fiction (novels and short stories) and screenwriting. Studying Creative Writing meant I learnt to deeply analyse writing to place a piece of work in a wider context, for instance, to determine a piece's commercial value, marketability, intended audience and genre. I was also able to develop my own writing voice under expert guidance and supervision. I took theoretical modules in Shakespeare, Contemporary Fiction, Gothic Literature and Children's Literature.
