Not long after writing this post, I realised that it wasn’t strictly true. Yes, the article has been printed and it means a lot to me, but it’s not the first time that I’ve had stuff published; I’ve had several book reviews in academic journals and an article in a University of Manchester student magazine.

You can’t view it unless you subscribe to the Friend, the Quaker newspaper, but should you wish to have a little peak then here’s the link:
