Alex Scott - Editor-in-Chief   Editor-in-Chief by day, your biggest fan-girl by night. You can find me in any remotely aesthetic café, alternating between tea slurps and laughter snorts. I enjoy nothing more than reading a good ol’ comedy, but don’t be fooled– I WILL be rocking back and forth to Taylor Swift’s 2006 heartbreak ballads as I edit your love poetry at 3am. That’s a promise.

Amy Hodkin - Head Poetry Editor   My taste in art and writing is a bit like an all you eat buffet - I like a bit of everything, and quite enjoy mixing together things that you wouldn't expect to work. As much as I love a good classic sonnet, I love experiencing things that are completely different to anything I've read before - just please don't do a David Lynch; at least give me a somewhat satisfying ending. I spend my spare time doing way too many different projects, and enjoy dabbling in as many forms of creativity as I can get my hands on. As Patchwork's resident stress baker, I believe like Julie Walter's character in Mamma Mia 2 that every problem in life can be solved by a good slice of cake.

Hazel Needham - Head Prose Editor   Discombobulated is my favourite word. Say it! DIScombobulated. DiscomBOBulated. DisCOM… you get the idea. Did you know that the dot above an ‘i’ or a ‘j’ is called a tittle? Titter. Do I mean titter? Yes, like: to giggle? Titter! Do you ever repeat a word, or just stare at it until the letters are just – letters? You may ask, ‘what does  must  really even mean?’  Must . You realise it sounds just like musk, and like mast. M-U-S-T. Something familiar warps, just briefly, into something foreign. The language is trying to fight back. The letters are alive. It’s utterly discombobulating, and that’s precisely why it’s my favourite.

Lis Skinner - Graphic Designer   Hello! I’m your friendly neighbourhood graphic designer/agony aunt/soothsayer/gremlin, and I’m currently studying English Lit with Creative Writing on the side. My mum thinks I’m funny. Most of my spare time is spent painting pictures of dogs, playing the guitar (badly), doing crafty things with glitter, rollerblading (really, really badly), watching rubbish horror films, and studiously avoiding doing any actual work. I will show ankle in exchange for Pringles.
