Festivals Galore!

I haven’t said much on the blog recently, because I’ve been busy! (Probably a little too busy for my own sanity). I’ve started a new job AND have been working on Issue 2, which is nearly on its way out into the big, bad world. I’m also going to be appearing at a whole bunch […]

Life Update

So, it’s been a while. I can’t believe it’s already the second week of March – though I guess if I look back on what I’ve done so far this year, I… can. I’ve been doing a lot of writing. A LOT. It was the point of stepping back from studying, but it’s still a […]

Pre-orders have arrived!

If you know me in real life, you’re probably sick of me harping on about this, but I’m going to go ahead and do it anyway. Pre-orders have dropped for Pencilled In, my magazine-baby.

Busy busy busy bee is Me

This is just a short blog post to let people know what I’m up to – and why I may not be as active on this blog for the next couple of months. Even though I’m not going to uni this year, I’ve managed to corral together way too many things to do, so now […]

Resolutions for 2017

Review: The Paper House (Anna Spargo-Ryan)

In The Paper House, Anna Spargo-Ryan explores the intricacies of family, grief, mental illness, and what happens when all three of these combine in an unexplainable, incomprehensible manner. Heather, Spargo-Ryan’s protagonist, suffers an incredible loss at the beginning of the novel, and before long, we are swept up on a journey that looks forwards, backwards, and most importantly, inside […]

I Finished It! (four days ago…)

It’s been four days since I handed in my thesis and it’s still all a bit surreal. I’m still coming to the terms with the fact that after 18 years of education, I am no longer a student – well, at least, until I’m about 30 and decide to do my PhD. It’s been strange […]

Right of Reply

I’d like to first kick off with a million thank yous and virtual hugs to everyone who read my last piece. I’m just a dork with a website, a blistering desire to avoid completing the third chapter of my Honours thesis, and at the time, with a whole bunch of feelings. You’ve all made this […]
