Writer

Personal Brief

Zoë is a recent graduate from Nottingham uni, figuring out what an earth to do next in life and trying to find a job to which her History degree can be of use.
Since there isn’t such a job, she now spends her time using the skills university taught her most: how to spend all day on social media and how to chat rubbish write convincingly.
Zoë is currently working as a digital communications intern for a human rights NGO and doing some freelance copywriting on the side. When not at work, Zoë can be found roaming the streets of her new home town Clapham.
She can tell you absurdly specific things about ballet, art, film & literature during Soviet Russia, but probably not much else.

Artists on your radar, shout them out!

Emma Block and her gorgeous illustrations. American artist Glenn Ligon and his collections on postwar America. 

And my very talented cousin Lydia Ourahmane. No one else in the family has imported 38 tons of Algerian soil to Geneva for an art exhibition, so she wins points for that.

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

Standing in front of a filled bookshelf. Best for, well books. 

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

Bashing your head against the table until you have a lightbulb moment. Or in other words, patience and perseverance. 

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

Ray LaMontagne 

Snarky Puppy ‘We Like It Here’ album. 

And because the more I deny it, the more I’m caught singing his songs- Justin Bieber.

What is your idea of a jolly good time?

Close friends piled into a pokey flat, eating burnt food and washing it down with cheap wine. Outrageous dance moves to music on naff, tinny speakers. Genuine smiles and laughter, and no judgement when someone decides its time to turn the kettle on. 

What happened the last time you were a complete disgrace?

What happens in Nottingham stays in Nottingham...
