Eleanor Exton, Development Officer

Ellie studied at the University of Brighton for both her BA and MA in English Literature and returns there at every opportunity to shiver on the beach and eat vegan junk food. She came to First Story from working in an independent bookshop, where she spent most of her wages buying books, and sporadically writes film reviews for Eyes on the Screen.

Ellie loves all things creative and in her spare time, can be found surrounded by books, plants and half-finished craft projects. She struggles to pick favourites, but urges you to read The Handmaid’s Tale, Woman on the Edge of Time, The God of Small Things, 100 Years of Solitude, His Dark Materials
