Milly Reilly

An avid reader, I usually find my time divided between reading and discussing books. I recently graduated from King’s College London, where I spent an indulgent year studying for a Master’s in Contemporary Literature, Culture and Theory. Prior to that, I completed a degree in English Literature at the University of York. I was introduced to the professional world by way of First Story, a charity that sets up creative-writing programmes in schools serving low-income communities. I worked there for just over a year as a Fundraising and Marketing Assistant before starting as Jo’s assistant. When I’m not reading, I like watching stand-up comedy or sad films: it depends on my mood.  Aside from that, I’m a beginner in pottery, with this year being the first I have taken to the potter’s wheel.
