Virginia Hartley


Writing Advisor

Virginia holds a BA Hons (First Class) in English from Oxford University, and an MA in the History of Art from the Courtauld Institute. She spent several years at Sotheby’s before going on to work as a creative copywriter, and is currently training part-time as a psychotherapist at the Tavistock & Portman NHS in London. Her fiction and non-fiction have been published in UK and international print journals, in academic peer review journal, and anthologised. These threads come together in her curiosity and empathy for creative processes; as a writing advisor, she hopes to create a space which facilitates the most authentic emergence of an individual student voice.
