Joanna Hemmings - Critical Writing Editor

Joanna Hemmings is a mature student at Leeds Beckett University, soon to be graduating with a first class honours degree in English with Creative Writing. She has a substantial employment background, primarily in management and organizational roles and hopes that her return to education will give her the tools to forge a more desirable career path in teaching or editorial positions.

Joanna will begin postgraduate studies at Leeds Beckett University in the new academic year.

Mackenzie Woodhouse - Creative Writing Editor

Mackenzie Woodhouse is an experimental writer from Sheffield who recently completed English With Creative Writing at Leeds Beckett University. Building from her fascination of everyday objects, food, and conversation, she has built a portfolio of strangely presented powerful poetry. Kenzie’s niche is focused upon form-play, style, and the possibilities of the blank page. She thinks that the poem should break free from the restrictions of the single page.
