About me
I’m a recent graduate in BA English who is currently working freelance as a Marketing and Social Media Assistant for media production company Bird Lime Media and as a Digital Marketing Assistant for The Book Network. I am also Social Media Manager and Trustee for non-profit organisation The Reading Corner, who aim to champion underrepresented writers and provide literature and libraries for disadvantaged communities. Reading and writing have always been a love of mine. Three of my poems have been published in arts zines during my time at uni, and I’m now in the process of writing my own anthology. Having worked around the publishing industry from different angles, I think I could bring some unique insights to the industry which I hope to have the opportunity to do very soon.
