The world is quiet here, in this wee corner of the internet, but not because I’ve stopped writing. Sometimes a blog feels like shouting into the void, especially because platforms such as wordpress or blogger don’t cultivate a sense of community as places like instagram or twitter do. So although I love my blog, I will be updating it sporadically. But you can still find me in these places…
Narrative Muse is a platform that promotes female driven books and films. Not only do they fight the good fight, but they have cultivated a community of contributors that I love being a part of. I’ve been a muser for a year now and it is something that I hope I will always be doing. I recently wrote about Eli Goldstone’s Strange Heart Beating, and Ali Smith’s Winter. Go forth and read.
Notes is a Cambridge based publication of creative writing, poetry, art, photography, and essays. I am on the events and publicity team, organizing issue launches and running the social media channels (I’ve been curating their instagram). You don’t have to be a Cambridge student to submit to Notes, you don’t even have to live here! And the editors give feedback to every single submission. I love Notes, and I love the Notes team.
Recently I’ve begun writing for Book Riot who let me write whatever I want about books and reading. My favourite to date is The Lorde Lit List, but (among other things) I also wrote about abandoning my reading goal, and made a round-up of Literature’s Greatest Parties.
Your daily(ish) dose of bookish goodness. I love instagram. I love how this platform has evolved and enabled me to connect with other readers and make links those who read and write and publish. Because of instagram I’ve made bookish friends from all over the world.
I don’t really call myself a photographer (what makes one a photographer? I don’t call myself a writer either, but it seems I am constantly writing), but I take my camera everywhere and am endlessly chasing the good light. Take a peek.
