Francesca Laidlaw

Francesca Laidlaw

Francesca, more informally known as Chess, studies English literature and creative writing in Central London. Born and bred in the city, she spends most of her time reading books that aren’t on her university reading list, writing manically about anything that catches her imagination and sketching tattoo designs on receipts for the overpriced London coffee that gives her the energy to get on with whatever she’s technically meant to be doing that day.
