My writing


My writing covers topics including style, fashion (particularly sustainability), feminism, family, culture, literature, mental health and body image. I am currently junior editor of Violet magazine. 

I won the Vogue Talent Contest for young writers in 2011 at age 16, and have since contributed several articles to British Vogue and My writing has been published on websites including Refinery 29, Broadly, The Guardian, The Debrief, The Coven, and Yahoo as well as in other print magazines such as Teen Tatler, Lionheart and Apartamento. I have contributed to both The Oxfam Blog and All Walks Beyond the Catwalk (all links at the bottom of the page). I am happy to write to commission on a wide variety of subjects. Please email if interested.

I also work in other forms, including fiction, poetry and plays. I won the 2013 Hippocrates Poetry Prize for Young Poets (an international contest bringing together poetry and medicine), with the award sponsored by NAWE. I co-wrote a play titled 'The Man who Turned into a Sofa' broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in September 2014, in which I also performed. My debut collection Branch and Vein is available through the New River Press

I am represented by Diana Beaumont at Marjacq Scripts.

My first non-fiction title for teenagers and young women is called Notes On Being Teenage, and was released with Hachette in 2016.

Very impressive! For myself, I'm totally opposite when it comes to fashion (I guess I'll call myself a Fashion Victim), but here-here to good coffee!
