Author's Portfolio

Below is all my published writing to date. My published writings include 3D tutorials, poetry and lifestyle articles. I have written for several publications over 2 years, including pieces for prestigious websites and newspapers.

I hold a First Class English Literature degree from the University of Reading, which has greatly assisted me in writing all the following pieces.

 
 

The SPARK Newspaper Articles

While studying at the University of Reading 2017-2020, I wrote two articles and one poem for The SPARK Newspaper. I owe my love for writing to The SPARK Newspaper, as it was the first opportunity I had to consider writing as a hobby or career. Essentially, this is where my writing journey began, and thanks to my English Literature degree, I now feel like a competent writer for the first time. All articles are written under the name Rhiannon Ford.

Why Social Media Is Not Killing Our Social Lives (2018)

This article is a response article to those who are convinced that social media is bad for people. It addresses the issue through the lense of long distance relationships and long distance friendships. This article was originally published on the Spark Newspaper Online website, but has since been removed.
