Where new writing finds its voice

Contributor's Notes

Jenny Kingsley

South Kensington, London

Writer, journalist, volunteer (with primary school) and motherhood!


I am American by birth though England is where my home rests with my very British partner and two sons. Before starting my family, I worked full time as a journalist with women's magazines. With babes in arms, I then focussed on community and political work, writing on a more mundane plane (newsletters, speeches, briefing papers, etc.). I became a local councillor and also ran for parliament in the 2005 general election (Liberal Democrat). In the meanwhile I have written for regional and national newspapers and was a columnist - "Letter from London" - for an American newspaper in Massachusetts for over two years. I have just completed an MA in Creative and Life Writing at Goldsmiths and have finished writing a collection of short stories which I hope to publish in the very near future.
