Honor Cargill

Hi I'm Honor!

I'm 18 and I've just started studying Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at Oxford Uni (I know, a bit rogue...).

I've done loads of acting mostly just school plays but a tiny bit of professional too and although I'm nothing like Elektra I feel her pain because her most humiliating moments are strangely similar to mine. Actually she has it easy not only was my first kiss on stage but it was in front of my parents and my headteacher. So naturally I decided to write about it so all you guys can mercilessly take the piss out of me too. Enjoy.

 

I've just started a YouTube channel Honor Cargill - come and watch me chatting about life, writing and getting inventive with some bookish baking (watch out for competitions too).

 

I blogged for the Guardian about writing with my mum: weird? torture? fun? You can find out exactly how we managed to actually get quite a lot of words written without killing each other here...

Here we both are in primary school uniform. I'm on the bottom and no, I'm not a twin - it was an early Take Two moment...

And here's a throwback piece where P divulges much to much about me and not nearly enough about her as kid...
