I have always enjoyed reading and writing. I chose to pursue a degree in Creative Writing because it combines these two passions of mine. I am drawn to writing horror and fantasy stories and am currently working on my first novel, which combines these genres. My favourite author is Edgar Allen Poe because I like his dark, brooding, descriptive style. I have written film and theatre reviews, as well as lifestyle articles, for numerous websites. I undertook a week of work experience at the Ealing Gazette and I loved the experience so much that it reenforced how much I want to write for a living. I can’t wait to start becoming a better writer!
