Student of English Literature and Creative Writing / Part-time International Student officer at Edge Hill University

Writing and Publishing

My poetry was most recently published in Mothmaw Poetry Anthology (2016). One of my greatest ambitions is to work within the publishing industry. I have been passionate about literature since a very young age and I have had the opportunity to learn about the industry first hand through internships in the last couple of years. My position as Social Media Intern at Edge Hill University Press is coming to an end and I am looking to get a position where I can apply my previous experiences. I have also done freelance work for an up and coming publisher in Guatemala called 'Entre Comillas', for which I have done content writing and editing.
