So I've not really been around on the site for a good few months now. I guess just things are changing and I'm getting busy with other things. I'm still keeping Sparkbright going - we've got a new issue due out in June, and we're closing for submissions for that issue at the start of May.

I'm in my final term of university, so I'm busy looking for a job. If you've been following me for a while you might remember me doing an internship at a literary agency last summer, or my stint at Oxford University Press. They were great experiences and I've got a few more placements lined up for this summer, but I'm hoping to find some paid work before too long. I'm busying myself applying for jobs etc. and am hoping to go to at least some of the London Book Fair again this year (I won't get to much of it as I'm on a work experience placement that week...).

My classes this term are Revenge Tragedy, and Poetry after Modernism. I love Revenge, I hate Poetry. But I keep telling myself that I've only got two more assignments to hand in before I graduate in July! And, even better, I finish all my classes at the start of April, meaning that, by then, I'll be all done with my university commitments and ready to make my way out into the big wide world...

I probably won't be on this site all that much. I've been a member for five years, that's a long time. I'm not writing much anymore, but if you particularly want to keep in touch I've got a blog… and a twitter account (@ek_smith) so you can follow me on there if you like :)

I miss you guys, and I'm not going to say I'll never be back on the site, but it's true - my updates are few and far between these days...

I'll talk to you later, perhaps.

I work in the publishing industry. I'm trying to write a novel, but keep getting distracted by shiny things.

I have featured *Panda-Vision in my latest news article, and he pointed out one of the featured pieces was a collaboration with you (- so you get a bit of spotlight as well). ;)
The article is here: [link]
