Jayne Robson.


Hello! My name is Jayne, I am originally from a rural mining town in the North East, but I now live and work in Greater Manchester. Pre-covid I dabbled in all sorts of creative industries jobs from performing to writing but have yet to settle into one full time, and at the moment I work as a project trainer for a telecommunications company while I find my feet. I have a lot of passion for all things creative and I spend every free moment painting, writing, crafting, and even making graphics or editing videos. I studied Creative Writing and Theatre at Brunel University in Uxbridge and ideally would like to find a full time career in the arts. I started writing for rrramble because I love the core values they stand for. As a queer creator from a working class background, I always found it hard to relate to the kind of people who seemed to be reviewing works I was interested in. Finding rrramble gave me writers to identify with, and I'd quite like to be able to give that relatability back!

Who would play you in a film of your life?

Julia Davis. I connect with her sense of humour on a spiritual level - of course the film of my life would be a comedy. I love everything she writes so with luck we'd convince her to write the script too!

The last book that made you cry?

The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charles Mackesy. It was given to me for my birthday and I went into it completely blind. It is without a doubt a book that changed my life. Simple but beautiful and full of exquisite illustrations, the kind of thing I will pick up and read over and over again.

What's a song that HAD to be written about you?

‘Life Less Ordinary’ - Carbon Leaf. I feel like the first time I heard this track it just struck me in my soul. If music were a person I would definitely be this song’s best friend. It's so bouncy and upbeat, just like me! But it also talks about things I want for myself - a life extraordinary!

A poem you could recite on demand?

‘The old astronomer to his pupil’ - Sarah Williams. I read this for the first time when I was sixteen and I have adored it ever since. It's my go-to poem.
