Sophie Playle lives in the South East of England, UK. She has a BA in English Literature with Creative Writing from The University of East Anglia. After working full time in the publishing industry for a year, she is now studying for an MA in Creative Writing at Royal Holloway University of London.
In 2009 I obtained a degree in English Literature with Creative Writing from The University of East Anglia, where I was privileged to work with writers such as Rebecca Stott, Andrew Cowan, George Szirtes and Giles Foden - as well as other students who shared my interest in writing.
After I graduated, I worked for Pearson Education, the world's leading educational publisher. I was an editorial assistant working on nursing and business books.
Recently, I set up Inkspill Magazine, which publishes short stories, poetry, articles and art. It is available in printed and PDF format.
I have been published in various places such as Skive, Ink Sweat & Tears, The Pygmy Giant, Metazen, Short.Story.Me, and Hint Fiction Anthology. I was short listed for the 2010 Mslexia poetry competition.
I am now studying for an MA in Creative Writing at Royal Holloway University of London, while still working as a freelance editor. I am working on my first novel-length piece, a horror steampunk mash-up.
