I am an early modernist and freelance writer, published in The Economist, The Times Literary Supplement, 1843 magazine, and others. In 2019, I won the Telegraph/Benjamin Franklin House Literary Prize and the Art Fund writing competition.
In 2016, I graduated with a First in English from Pembroke College, Oxford, where I was awarded a Rupert Murdoch Journalism Scholarship, a Pembroke College Finals Prize, and a Santander Academic Travel Award, which I used to enrol as a visiting student on the creative writing module at New York University's Paris campus. I deputy edited The Oxford Student, and edited The Isis, which was subsequently nominated for the 'Best Website' Award at the Guardian Student Media Awards.
I then worked at The Economist for a year, before reading for an MPhil in Renaissance Literature at Cambridge, graduating with a prize-winning Distinction. I also edit for The King's Review, Cambridge University's quality postgraduate journal, and am currently writing a guide to Cambridge’s museums and galleries for Art Fund. I will begin a PhD in English at UCL in 2019, funded by the London Arts and Humanities Partnership (AHRC).
