“Started in the kitchen of a grotty university house; a team wasn’t in the initial plan. But looking around and seeing so many women who are so talented, far more than I am, in their field, I thought: ‘why not create a team of leaders for this collective who love what they do and are keen to change the way women involve themselves in the creative arts?’ So here are the strong, incredible women who are leading the way…”
Editor and Founder
Passionate about all things creative art and promoting women’s places in them. Particularly passionate about journalism, scriptwriting and comedy. I want to make these spheres accessible for women. Showing women how they can work together to create stunning projects they can be proud of while also encouraging the conversation about intersectional feminism and sustainability; a classic philosophy student. On a more trivial level, I love wine, Gilmore Girls and the hit musical: Legally Blonde. Often found curled up in a cafe drinking too much coffee and asking why the graduate job market is such a mess.
Art and Photography Editor
Georgia is a lover of media and visual art, particularly photography and film. She has been driven in the direction of creating the media that she loves to consume, and has started taking courses in screenwriting and film. Giving women a platform in the media and encouraging creative collaboration is something she feels is fundamental to media. She can’t wait to get involved with this project because of this. She believes that having a voice is fundamental to the human experience and she wants to work to promote this. The way to her heart is of course social justice, 80s movies, 20th century music and anything sweet.
Joanna Magill is a recent graduate of the University of Southampton, having studied French and Spanish. Originally from a small town in Northern Ireland, she is currently based in West London.

Annabel Hughes is a second year Zoology student with a passion for all things to do with the natural world. Her creative interests lie in the classics, spoken word and other forms of performative writing – she is currently working on her first full-length play.
