Congratulations to our previous editing intern Memoona Zahid on her new role with Penguin Random House! It was an absolute pleasure to work with her as our first IS&T intern. In the few months Memoona spent with us, she developed her own unique editorial style and brought new ideas to the team, She also launched our filmpoem series. We wish her all the best xx

Memoona was born and raised in London, has a BA from Goldsmiths in English with Creative Writing and has just completed her MA in Creative Writing (Poetry) at UEA where she was awarded the Birch Family Scholarship. While interning for Ink Sweat & Tears, she was chosen for the prestigious Ledbury Critics Programme for 2021 and she has since been selected as one of the emerging poets for the Spread The Word Runaways project ( developed in conjunction with academics from the University of Glasgow and IS&T.)
