Jo Jackson

I'm a Zimbabwean, born and raised in Harare. For the last few years I've been packing in the degrees in Europe and South Africa. I've become bilingual in French and have been lucky enough to develop my skills in various exciting places, such as Goldsmiths University of London, where I graduated with an MA in Creative and Life Writing. I'm passionate about stories, no matter what shape or form they're told in. Making stuff is what gets me up in the morning. If I'm not busy writing, I'm doodling away on Photoshop, snapping pictures or editing a short movie.
