The Student Wordsmith launches first non-fiction publication

Great news for all lovers of the written word: The Student Wordsmith will shortly launch their first pamphlet of non-fiction, entitled The Growing Unease!

The Student Wordsmith is an award-winning creative writing and publishing platform specifically aimed at a student and graduate audience. Founded by Sophie-Louise Hyde, who now runs the venture with Jennifer Nicol (both are Loughborough University English PhD students) it has published numerous collections of poetry and fiction on a wide range of topics.

This new pamphlet features articles on the roles and representation of social media, beauty ideals, religion and celebrity and their effect on notions of modern individuality.
