Jess Lord. 22. Grantham, UK.

Durham University Graduate.

Freelance Writer & Broadcaster.

Not sure who was more excited about my Graduation to be honest…

I’ve always been in awe of the power of the written word.

Be that from a novel, letter, article, report or blog – I’ve always loved reading something and thinking: ‘I absolutely love how they’ve put that.’

I wrote my first article when I was eleven, at primary school. I still have it. It was about the earthquake that occurred in Market Rasen in 2008… feel free to have a read (warning, it’s a little clunky – please be kind).

Who on earth Jenny Peters is, I’ll never know – and I’m very impressed at the speed in which the Sunday Times chose to relocate to Grantham – they obviously realised that this was the place to be…

Hopefully my writing has got a little better and slightly more imaginative than an article about an earthquake, entitled ‘Earthquake’ – but hey, if it’s not – please do feel free to drop me an email. Always looking for ways to improve:
