Katie Antoniou

Writer

Personal Brief

Katie would like to learn how to sew a quilt that looks like a scrabble board, read tarot cards and move things with her mind, but unfortunately she is too busy trying to be a real-life writer. She hopes that we run out of oil in her lifetime so that she can enjoy the post-apocalyptic fashion movement with everyone riding around on horses again and wearing a lot of leather. But in the mean time she will just go to Burning Man instead.

You can read more of her musings in The Guardian, Psychologies magazine, Dazed Digital and her own blog. Here's a whole site about her www.katieantoniou.com with links to her twitter and all that jazz. Drop her a line if you're after a journalist, copywriter or social media sort, or if you'd like her to DJ at your do.

Which is your number one location - and what's it best for?

The Tamesis Dock is my local; an old boat moored on Albert Embankment.The deck is covered in fairylights and great bands play there throughout the summer. Down the road near Vauxhall tube you can rummage through antiques and found objects at LASSCO whilst enjoying some of the finest scones in London at their little-known cafe.These are my default places for meeting people because they're both really quirky, unique environments serving great food and drink, AND they're both 5 minutes walk from my flat.

'Getting creative', what's it all about?

Hunga Munga nights are great for getting your craft on- I have bonded with many people over a pot of glue and some cutting and sticking at Bethnal Green Working Men's Club. Serious nostaligia high: peeling the glue off your fingers nursery school style.

Your Life, Right Now - what's the soundtrack?

Gabby Young and Other Animals, Joanna Newsom, Santogold, VV Brown,Catherine AD, Tallulah Rendall, Revere, The Palpitations, Mary Epworth, Kimbra, Golden Fable, Grimes, Beth Jeans Houghton, Emmy the Great,A Fine Frenzy, Regina Spector

What happened the last time you were a complete disgrace?
