Ella Ruby Self
Ella Ruby Self is a Sheffield writer and grew up nestled against the rise of the Peak District moors. Having changed her BA last minute from Geography to English Literature, she has never looked back, going on to complete an MA in Literature and Creative Writing for which she was awarded a Distinction. Currently, she is in her first year of her PhD, looking at how folk stories are inherently intertwined with the natural landscape. Stories inspired by nature, myth and folklore have always been a large part of her life, and you can often find her up on some distant edge, lost in the woods, in abominably cold water or under big moorland sky with a notebook in her pocket and a head full of daydreams.
