Meet the SINK  Team


Ria (they/them)

Co-Founder and Illustrator

I'm from Leeds, I study Classics and English, and I currently write about gender and sexuality,  the importance of alternate news sources, and the fight against climate change. Also, my favourite animal is an echidna and my fun fact is that I'm a goat whisperer.


I am working with everyone on SINK because I hope it’ll be a great outlet for creativity and I am really enthusiastic about where we can take it! 

Anisha (She/her)


Hi! I'm from Manchester and study English and Spanish at St Andrews. Poetry is the main love of my life but articles and anything with written words are a joy to write. I also run Young Friends of the Earth Manchester focusing on the usual issues like fast fashion and our best friend capitalism. My fun fact is that I can do Jujitsu (although I am not saying how well) ! 


I'm delighted to read all the new pieces as a Sink editor and be a part of this amazing team, expanding the already diverse themes in creative mediums of music, writing and art. 


Antonia (she/her)

Co-Founder and Co-Editor

I'm from Manchester and I write comment pieces and poetry. I study German and Russian but I’m far more passionate about making lengthy diatribes about the dangers of Big Tech, pushing for more class intersectionality and examining the politics of female writing. A fun fact about me is that I’m afraid of the moon.


I co-founded SINK because I never want to get over the initial shock and anger I felt when I moved south and found out how many creative opportunities Southerners have compared to Northerners!

Eva (she/they)

Co-editor and illustrator

I’m a poet and writer based in Manchester. I explore mental

health, emotional inheritance, domestic abuse and both neuro and gender diversity. My particular interest is memory and its echoes, as well as symmetries of history.

A fun fact is that my mum believes I was haunted as a child; she used to see a girl in 60’s gym shorts looking at objects in my room whilst I was asleep.


I’m excited to be an editor at SINK, primarily for the selfish reason I’m a literary nerd who wants to read your work! I’m passionate about providing a space of inclusivity; uplifting Northern writers traditionally marginalised from literary institutions.

Ellen (she/her)


Hi, I'm Ellen, and I'm a new member of the SINK team! Alongside studying English at York, I write poetry, and I was one of the contributors for volumes 1 and 2 of SINK as well as reading at their recent event, so I've seen first hand what an amazing platform the magazine is and I can't wait to get involved. I'm also Deputy Editor of The Looking Glass Anthology, a yearly collection of work by York students.


I am really excited to join the SINK team as it's a great publication which works so hard to celebrate Northern artists, and to provide opportunities which are so often lacking.
