WORK IN PROWESS


If you've made it to this section of the website, hark: you are gazing upon my weird, ugly baby. I set up Work In Prowess in 2012, and ran it until my paid writing career became too busy to run it any longer.  The aim was to extend the reach of what I was doing on Blogspot by asking my favourite writers, designers and cartoonists to act as contributors. The results were some of the most rewarding, and most creative of my career.  

At 22, I was in the bizarre position of commissioning and editing some of the most talented writers working in British media today. What's even more bizarre to me is that they did it for free – because they believed in the site, and they believed in me.
