Jade joined The Beestonian almost by accident, but mostly through various acts of serendipity.

She studied English with Creative Writing at NTU, then, after flirting with the idea, decided to do an MA in Magazine Journalism. After somehow surviving it and graduating, she now spends 99% of her time meeting Matt in coffee shops or performing poems in front of people. She ran the Buzzword poetry competition, and is now preparing for other exciting projects and the much-anticipated revamp of the mag (alongside trying to make freelance life work). She can also be spotted shelving and selling books in Oxfam.
