Annie is a socialist-feminist writer originally from Newcastle Upon-Tyne, currently living in Manchester while she finishes her MA in English Literature and American Studies.
Her two favourite things to do in the world are reading and people watching and she aims to write things which allow people to do both of these things at once, but which also critically engage with class and gender in a hopefully funny, emotionally sensitive way.
She writes mostly prose and (mostly) unsolicited feminist essays on the damaging effects of patriarchy (most notably in relation to dangerous male emotional oppression and the hazardous socio-economic inequalities of modern-day womanhood). She is also fascinated by the role of feminism in sex culture, and in the transactional (or not?) nature of interpersonal relationships, in which our experiences of little moments and interactions contribute to who we are.
Previously Annie has carried out an editorial internship at Reader’s Digest UK in which she got to interview some incredible writers, artists and activists. She’s also had a couple of feminist essays published in Cashmere Magazine and a poem in SNACK magazine.
In what started as a desperate avoidance tactic in her first year of university in London, Annie has also kept up her own blog written in an accidentally diverse (and slightly sporadic) array of genres.
