    Leanne FrancisIt wasn’t unlike him to have the last laugh. In almost every activity, he came first. We spent drowsy summer afternoons, when the sun hung low in the sky, climbing trees, and shaking bark from clothes. Determined to show him that I could be quick, I beat him to the top. As I hung Margo, my favourite doll, from the tree, I bid my girlhood goodbye. From this day forward, I vowed to never come last again.

    Bachelor of Arts (BA) Newcastle University
     - Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
    My three years as an English Literature and Creative Writing student have proven me to be a creative, hard-working individual with strong attention to detail and interpersonal skills. Learning to work on my own and in collaboration with others towards deadlines at university greatly improved my understanding of teamwork, teaching me to have confidence in my decisions and an awareness of how I manage my time. I am passionate about the arts and find that I am most at home in environments that encourage me to engage with my creativity. Over the course of three years, I produced three independent poetry collections, all of which achieved a First. Key skills: • Literary Skills – Reading large quantities of text and writing essays to deadlines. Gathering primary and secondary material into a Bibliography using MLA8. • Work Experience – Completing placement with NCLA to develop work ethic as well as editorial and administrative skills. • Communication • Creative Writing
