Hello! I’m Morgan, a final year Theatre & Performance student at the University of Leeds. Despite desperately trying not to give in to the wanky, bookish, wannabe-writer narrative, I’m going to end this first paragraph by saying that I am an aspiring writer (and that I am also very wanky and bookish).
My fortnightly column at The Indiependent, Love Letters To My 20s, was commissioned in August 2020- but I have also been Theatre Editor there since September 2019. As you can imagine, this role has tied me to mostly Theatre News, Theatre Reviews and Theatre Features, so I brought this portfolio (my old, personal blog) to life to help me reflect on my previous content and push myself into diversifying my work.
In January 2021, I birthed my newsletter, Dishing The Dirt, after an evening of giggling over times that my followers and I had cried over people who didn’t deserve our tears. Every week, I respond to my Instagram & Twitter followers’ answers to my questions on dating and relationships to form a hilarious insight into what our love lives truly look like.
It’s my dream to have a book published, to run a successful podcast, and to have writing career that I am proud of. I’ll be using this blog to keep tabs on these goals, and hopefully I can eventually brag about it all here and you can all feel that you’ve witnessed a truly beautiful character arc.
When I’m not reading, at the theatre, or eating too much in Bundobust, you’ll find me re-watching a Channel 4 comedy, or in a Zara sale.
