Linda Arrighi (She/Her)
Co-founder – October 2020 to present
Linda Arrighi is a poet and book reviewer from Parma, Italy. Linda has a degree in Neuroscience and is now a Postgraduate Researcher in the Psychology Department of Durham University; despite these scientific endeavours, Linda is committed to reading, writing and drawing in her leisure time. She writes introspective, relatable and vulnerable prose and poetry, which deal with her feelings, thoughts, and musings about herself and the world around her. She has self-published poetry chapbook Hitting The Return Key in 2019. She also has a WordPress blog, readingunderpalmtrees, on which she primarily displays book reviews. She has participated in multiple creative writing courses and was a member of the Durham University Creative Writing Society in 2018-19, during which she collaborated on the anthology The End of a Conversation. In 2019, she was a finalist in the non-fiction section of the Wicked Young Writers Award with an essay about the neuroscience of human nature. Her current projects include writing more poetry and nonfiction, as well as learning and experimenting with digital illustrations, which she sells on RedBubble @lindarrighi. Linda particularly enjoys reading magical realism and scientific sci-fi novels, as well as collections of personal essays. Her favourite works emphasize the psychology and thoughts of their characters.
