Hello! I’m Rebekah Curtis, an artist and professional writer in the UK. Here’s a bit about what I do:
I am currently writing and illustrating my own books for children.
My son calls me Miss Scribble as I’m always sketching something!
I love experimenting with different media, documenting the world around me and inventing characters.
I’m currently working on picture books and books for young readers. I recently completed two outreach courses in Creative Writing and Creative Writing for Young Readers, both at the University of Bristol, and am a member of local creative writing groups.
Previously I was a Reuters correspondent for several years and sub-editor of the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Before this trained in news and features at The Independent, having also trained at The Daily Telegraph and Channel Four. I started out in journalism as Arts Editor for In Madrid, the Spanish capital’s English-language newspaper, during my BA in French and Spanish. All views on this blog are my own.
All art and photos are my own. I’m super happy for you to repost and share links to my site, but please do not use images without permission.
Thanks so much!
