Carenza Bramwell

I am a Midlands based, Lancashire born writer and all-round creative person.

As an only child, I filled my time making my own mini newspapers and creating fantastical worlds to live in. At age 9, I won a creative writing competition (and chocolate egg) at school, for writing a story about a killer chocolate bunny. It wasn’t until I was 14 that I was convinced by a teacher to pursue creative writing.

I moved from my seaside village in the Cumbria-Lancashire boarder to “Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon” to take an A-Level in Creative Writing. It was during this that I saw two plays that sealed the deal on my future as a writer. One was Snow in Midsummer by Frances Ya Chu Cowhig at the RSC, which I saw three times, and the other was Angels in America by Tony Kushner. These plays blew me away and sent me down the path I’m still on.

During my time at UWE, I have been involved with HUB Magazine, the student run magazine society. From 2019-2020, I was the News Editor, before becoming the President/Editor-in-Chief for 2020-2021. Through my time at HUB, I have written twenty-two articles and been involved in three editions of the magazine. I was also a contributor to the Bristol 24/7 Student Guide for 2020 and worked with UWE’s Centre for Music on their Christmas campaign.

At this point in my career, I don’t have a set plan on what I want to do. All I know is that I want to write stories. I want to create something for other people to enjoy. I’ve gotten so much enjoyment from stories, whether they be books, films, TV shows or plays, writing and stories have had a profound impact on my life. I want to be able to return the favour and inspire the next generation of writers.

When I’m not writing, I can usually be found thinking about writing, reading, watching something or playing with my cat, McKenzie.
