My name’s Annabel Bowles, and I’m a 21-year-old Journalism & Professional Writing and International Relations student from Adelaide.
Ever since I was a child, I’ve loved writing and storytelling. I still have notebooks filled with the stories that my seven-year-old self conjured in barely recognisable writing. No one ever read them, but to me it didn’t matter, writing was my creative outlet and the product of my imagination. It allowed me to escape reality and create my own world.
In the real world, there are extraordinary stories waiting to be told, by everyday people. When you delve beneath the small talk, every one has a fascinating story. This desire to tell human stories has led me to do many wonderful things, from studying journalism, to backpacking across the globe at nineteen years old, to writing for a number of publications including Fleurieu Living Magazine, The Globalist, Verse Magazine, and Global Hobo, and to collating my stories and the stories of other young people on this platform.
Here you’ll find a handful of tales on young, emerging artists and the remarkable things they get up to. You’ll also find some of my personal yarns and (hopefully-not-too-trashy) poetry.
Enjoy, stay rad, and I hope you find this inspiring.
