This is me. Ionie to most, “that weirdo sniffing books” to a few and Scully to one.
Luke and I decided to join forces on this project a while back but it wasn’t until this week that we really set everything in motion. We spend most of our time together coming up with wacky plans for creative projects that usually don’t see the light of day so it’s nice to finally see something through. The reason we decided on an anthology is simply to showcase what we can do. Admittedly I’ve felt pretty useless up to now as Luke has been doing all the branding and illustrations, which is why I can’t wait for the submissions to start arriving!
This isn’t my first time working as an editor; I ran my college newspaper for two years and have dabbled in journalism too. I have a degree in Creative Writing and Drama Studies so I’ve covered a varied array of topics while at university. My education has given me a theoretical and working knowledge of; writing to briefs, web content, magazine and small press publications, journalism, travel writing, reviews and scripts for screen and stage. I’d like to put that knowledge to good use.
I’m not terribly good at writing about my personality so I’ll keep it brief. I love horror films which is one of the reasons Luke and I get along so well. As he mentioned, he is a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer andso am I. I also love comics and books. It’s gotten to the point where I can’t go into bookshops unsupervised for fear of buying more than I can carry. My bookshelf is currently groaning with the weight of them so it’s probably time to invest in a bigger one! I also have a bit of a thing for stationary; I buy journals that my pens never touch. It’s an addiction.
As for the future; I want to write scripts for television and film. However, knowing how changeable I am I’ll probably end up pursuing something completely different. I still fancy being a zookeeper…
So that’s me in a nutshell. I hope to hear from you soon; this promises to be a very exciting project.
