Sophia Blackwell works as a marketing manager at Hodder Education and as a freelance writer, editor, and radio journalist making arts programmes and podcasts.

Sophia holds a BA (Hons) in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford. Shortly after graduating, she discovered the two main passions of her adult life – publishing and performance poetry.
