Ffion Davies

Ffion is a 23 year old hockey girl originally from North Wales. After a stint studying English Literature with Creative Writing in Lancaster (obviously with more drinking than reading, but shhh), she's now settle back in Bangor where she works as an editor at AltSounds.com, does PR for AltPR and marketing for the family run hot tub company. She always knew that she was going to be a writer ever since she started writing poems at the tender age of 8, and there's nothing she likes more than chilling in the pub, analysing the world and its stories. Politeness and banter is a must, and the odd smiley too :) www.ffiondavies.com www.altpr.co.uk www.altsounds.com @ffidavies
