I’m Jade Moore, and yes that is a photo of me meeting Jon Ronson.
I’m a freelance writer/journalist, and poet. I’ve spent the last four years at Nottingham Trent University: first I studied English with Creative Writing (lots of reading, lots of writing), then went on to do an MA in Magazine Journalism (lots of interviewing, lots of Adobe Indesign). Now, I’m out in the world trying to use all of that knowledge on a freelance basis.
I write for The Beestonian magazine, which is a really great hyper-local magazine that’s mad about Beeston.
When I’m not doing that, I’m reviewing books, writing poetry, performing poetry, proofreading fiction or sitting here in WordPress land editing websites. I’ve had a few bits of writing published, and you can find out more on my publications page.
On this blog you’ll find writing about writing, the occasional poem, and…quite a bit of mental health-related posts. I’m an introvert, and I also have anxiety. This will be a space for me to write about how anxiety affects various areas of my life.
Have fun reading/exploring my blog, and always feel free to leave me a comment, because words from other people always make me happy.
