The Team 2016

Sketch_Kirsty (1)


Editor: Kirsty Dunlop

Kirsty is a postgraduate student in creative writing. She thinks short stories are magical, and in her spare time plays the wee Celtic harp and enjoys dancing wildly.


Deputy Editor: Erika KoljonenSketch_erika (1)

Erika is a third year English literature student from Finland. She is really into music and considers the Frank Ocean album launch a bigger emotional rollercoaster than Brexit.


Events Managers: Kaisa Saarinen & Megan Handley

Kaisa is a second year politics student from Finland. Her favourite things in the world include travelling on night trains, the sound of a coffee machine in the morning and practising Chinese characters with a good pen. (1)


Photo Editor: Kati Brunk

Kati is a third year product design engineering student from Germany. She likes taking photographs and having late night talks, and most people would agree that she says ‘excited’ way too often.

Online Editor: Silvia Sani & Berta Kardelytė

Sketch_Silvia (1)

Silvia is a second year history of art student from Florence. She’s into photography and design, and her daily intake of coffee would make normal people shaky (and probably sick).


Features Editor: Clare PattersonSketch_Clare (1)

Clare is a third year English literature student from Northumberland. She loves gothic fiction, dogs and Joanna Newsom. She still misses Ed Miliband.


Politics Editor: Annie Milburn

Sketch_Annie (1)Annie is a fourth year geography student. When not puzzling over global politics and environmental issues, she enjoys playing tennis and spending money she doesn’t have on travelling.


Sketch_Emmi (1)Culture Editor: Emmi Joensuu

Emmi is a second year student of history and art history from Finland with permanently asymmetrical winged eyeliner and a passion for good coffee and academia.


Sketch_Niamh (1)Style Editor: Niamh Carey

Niamh is in her final year studying English and sociology. Her hobbies include writing songs about her dead pets, watching aerobic competitions from the eighties, and googling David Byrne a lot.



Science Editor: Dalia Gala

Sketch_Dalia (1)Dalia is a third year molecular and cellular biology student who loves creative prose and science. She also loves music and has been playing the guitar since she was 8 years old. Her passion for dancing compensates for her passion for calorific Italian food.
