I am a freelance-writer, based in Dorset in the UK. I graduated from the University of Winchester in 2010 with a BA (Hons) English with Creative Writing degree, and completed an NCTJ Diploma for Journalism in March 2013. I have written poems and stories since I can remember and writing always felt like the natural thing to do. I write reviews and articles for an online magazine called Do More Mag and upload short stories and poems to my website www.beckybye.com on a regular basis. Storyslingers is a Dorset-based writing group that I am a part of and it's a great incentive to keep writing and sharing ideas. Currently, I am working on a historical fiction novel and it is both challenging and exciting!
