Lucy J Wheeler
Lucy has a communications studies undergrad degree and a creative media masters, both from the University of Brighton. Besides an enduring and unshakeable love for Brighton, her time by the sea nourished her interests in class, activist photography, media tech and community development, disability studies, hidden histories and oral history. Since completing her MA in 2009, Lucy has worked in academic publishing and remains passionate about the potential for transformation that is contained in peoples’ stories, and in sharing knowledge and experience.
Lucy’s current crushings include Rupi Kaur, Ijeoma Umebinyu, Claudia Rankine, Frances Cannon and Laura Callaghan. When she’s not pouring over the work of these remarkable women, she’s probably squirrelling away her own short stores and poems in the hope that one day she’ll be brave enough to share them. Or, she might be planning what to cook for dinner!
Lucy’s claim to fame is that she was once featured in her then local newspaper as the youngest licensee in Essex.
