Trebuchet Magazine

I wrote content for Trebuchet Magazine, which was either published online or in print. I wrote opinion pieces and informative articles on topics concerning art, attended and reviewed exhibitions, arranged and conducted interviews and helped maintain the social media platforms.

I designed and published online content on Trebuchet’s WordPress website, though Trebuchet at its heart is concerned with art journalism, telling a story behind whatever it is I covered. I regularly communicated with media managers, curators of galleries and artists to produce a researched narrative true to the event in question.

I also wrote a number of pieces including a book review for the print magazine.

Here is a list of my publications with Trebuchet:

Eduland Book Writing Project- Planet X (Sci-Fi)

I am currently writing short stories for Eduland, starting from June 2021. These stories are aimed at teaching learners, from the ages of twelve to nineteen, how to use English as a foreign language. All the stories are written in American English and follow strict formatting rules, and consist of between 1,500-8000 words.

Unlike the Jolly series, these stories are aimed to investigate challenging issues, such as human rights, drugs, and environmental concerns. Most of the characters exist in an extended universe created by Eduland. These characters are documented on a spreadsheet, with their habits, talents, relationships, etc. I then take their characteristics and write short stories. If the stories are approved by the manager, the director, and the team of editors, then an illustrator is hired. The book with additional pictures was then published. The genre of the stories is defined as ‘fiction’.

My approved stories can be viewed below. The stories do not belong to me, all rights belong to Eduland.

Eduland Book Writing Project- The Jolly Family (Kids)

I wrote fifteen to twenty short stories a month for Eduland from September 2020 to May 2021. These stories were aimed at teaching learners, from the ages of six to sixteen, how to use English as a foreign language. All the stories were written in American English and followed strict formatting rules, and consist of between 1,500-4000 words.

Most of the characters existed in an extended universe created by Eduland. These characters are documented on a spreadsheet, with their habits, talents, relationships, etc. I then took their characteristics and write short stories. If the stories are approved by the manager, the director, and the team of editors, then an illustrator is hired. The book with additional pictures was then published. The genre of the stories was defined as ‘realistic fiction’.
