About Jen Hughes


Jen Hughes is a writer from Ayrshire, Scotland. She has been furiously scribbling stories and poems since she could write.

She can be found skulking around poetry open mics and other such events, reading her poems and short fiction aloud. Her main haunt is Words and Music at MILK Cafe, the event she and fellow poet Gayle Smith hosts (temporarily on Zoom). 

Jen studied English Literature and Film & TV Studies at University of Glasgow. When she's not writing, she enjoys playing on her guitar, painting and making collages.
