About Ruby

Ruby arrived at Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature on a seven-month programme, run by Creative Pathways with the University of Nottingham. Ruby grew up in another City of Literature, Norwich, where she developed a lifelong love of both reading and writing. In 2016, she moved to Nottingham to study English at the University of Nottingham. During three years of studies, Ruby was involved in various projects including Impact Magazine and working with Green’s Windmill in Sneinton. She joined the team in October.

"I have loved reading since childhood when I was inspired by my older sister’s voracious reading and I became determined to read as many books as she could - even though she was four years older than me.

As a teenager I developed a love for Young Adult fiction which still hasn’t diminished - and some of my favourite Young Adult novelists include Alice Oseman, Emma Cline, and Madeline Miller.

Now in my 20s, I appreciate a range of classic texts and writers who are cornerstones of literary heritage. Many of these became the subjects of my essays while I studied English at University, and Shakespeare’s comedies have always been a favourite.

If I had to pick a favourite book, it would be a dystopian novel. Probably Nineteen Eighty-Four - or A Clockwork Orange!"
