Business moving in write direction

A young Shropshire author has landed an ideal job - working for a specialist pen retailer.

Jade Edwards (22), who lives near Shrewsbury, has been appointed by Write Here, which has a shop in the town’s High Street.

The business, which specialises in pens and writing materials, is expanding its online offer by recruiting Jade as a new website assistant manager.

“We are continually developing our website, selling our pens and writing accessories all over the world and we also have a very loyal customer base in the UK. Jade will take responsibility for enhancing this area even further,” commented proprietor John Hall.

An English and creative writing graduate from Aberystwyth University, Jade will also explore various ways of strengthening the Write Here brand through Facebook and Twitter.

Her main interest outside the office is writing and she is currently working on her first book.

“It is a young adult crime novel and I'm aiming for it to be finished and edited just after Christmas and published some time soon after that as I hope to go down the self-publishing route,” commented Jade.

Write Here is hosting a pen evening on October 18 from 6.30pm when customers are invited to join staff for a wine tasting and to view the latest ranges.

Pen John Sorowka will be on hand to answer questions and also in attendance will be representatives from leading manufacturers Omas and Visconti.
