My writing covers topics that include fashion (particularly sustainability), feminism, family, culture, literature, mental health and body image. I won the Vogue Talent Contest for young writers in 2011 at age 16, and have since contributed two articles to UK Vogue: a 3 page piece on scoliosis, spinal surgery and body image in March 2013, and an article on perfume choice as rite of passage in May 2013. My writing has been published on websites including The Guardian, Vagenda and Eco-Age as well as in other print magazines such as Teen Tatler, Lionheart and Apartamento. I contribute 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
I also work in other forms, including fiction and poetry. In May 2013 I won the 2013 Hippocrates Poetry Prize for Young Poets (an international contest bringing together poetry and medicine), with the award sponsored by NAWE.
In November 2013 I was named as one of the 'h.Club 100' (in association with Guardian Culture Professionals Network) most innovative and influential people in the creative industries, in the Publishing and Writing category.
I am represented by Diana Beaumont at the Rupert Heath Literary Agency.
As a speaker I'm represented by Hire Intelligence.
