Of woman born, raised by the internet, I’ve been oversharing online since MySpace was knee-high to LiveJournal. With a decade-long trail of e-debris behind me, this blog is an attempt to finally draw everything together in one place. A chronic keeper of private notebooks, I blog opinion pieces, reviews, and personal essays exploring literature, art, music, television, cinema, and performance. I’m currently undertaking a Master’s in twentieth century literature at Leeds University, writing on gender, sexuality, relationships, and the body, and representations of culture and technology. Publications are listed here. Some examples of my academic writing can be found here, and a selection of my creative writing here.
Originally from Glasgow, I moved to West Yorkshire in January 2015 and soon wriggled my way in to basically my dream job, working in learning and development for Very Big Retailer. I completed a brief volunteering stint with Leeds Museums & Galleries that summer, helping to organise their PoMoGaze Festival, and did various odds and bobs with Glasgow Women’s Library during my undergrad years. I’m very engaged with social politics, approaching arts and culture from a queer intersectional feminist perspective. I enjoy singing, city-walking, language-learning, hanging out in cafés, and trips to the theatre, but honestly my favourite thing to do in life is just lie in bed all day with a good book.
You can read more about the blog’s name here. You can also find me on twitter, instagram, tumblr, and goodreads. I’m happy for anyone to contact me to discuss common interests, writing/editing gigs and collaborations, indecent proposals, etcetera. It’s definitely easiest to @ me, but I have also been known to respond to emails.
