Meet the team who are supporting our 2018 Editors.
Joining us for a second time is Cara Bradbury a second-year English student who was born in Greater Manchester. She has spent the past few years working with horses and has travelled extensively throughout the UK. Her travels have led to some very interesting debates around the subject of chip muffins and chip barms!
Cara has always had a love of literature and horses, though thankfully she has never attempted to read while riding. She is enjoying working with The Bolton Review team and hopes to work in publishing following her graduation.
Katrina Fletcher is in her final year studying Theatre. She has a passion for playwriting and is currently writing a second play following the success of her one-woman play and the adaption of one of her poems for the stage.
Katrina believes stories for the stage capture the adventure of living. She is looking forward to helping budding playwrights find a voice for their work in The Bolton Review.
‘Northern Word Flirt’, Shirley-Anne Kennedy, is a third-year Creative Writing student with a passion for web fiction and digital publishing. As the team member responsible for Public Relations and Social Media, she has enjoyed giving The Bolton Review website a fresh new look and is looking forward to a second year engaging with our followers on social media.
Jeni Mills is a Salford girl who, as a youngster, was likened to Roald Dahl’s Matilda on more than one occasion. Because she always had her head in a book, not because she could move things with her mind. More’s the pity.
Jeni recently completed her final year of a joint degree in English and Creative Writing, this issue marks her third stint as a member of the Bolton Review’s editorial team. She is fascinated with the nuances of grammar and when she grows up she hopes to lead a double life: copy editor by day, poet by night.
Anabela Valerio is Portuguese and has been living in Bolton since 2002. She likes watching comedy and mystery crime series on TV and walking in the park with her family. Anabela is an avid poetry and drama writer but loves reading anything as long as it has complex characters and strong emotion. She says, ‘poetry is like painting with words.’
Anabela also loves food and healthy living. Her ambition as a writer is to take poetry to the masses and to raise awareness about mental illness.
