Harriet Verney – Writer

– Harriet Verney is a character to say the least. Originally from stroud, this high school drop-out landed in Shoreditch ready to take on a writing career. Head-to-toe in vintage mixed with the odd piece of couture, with flame pink locks; she quickly became the darling of the east end scene. Away from private tuition Harriet set about a life of creative freedom, and is now assistant creative director at 123 Bethnal Green road and editor of soon to be Pigmee magazine. She is an ideas lady, and a fantastic writer at that.

    Great issues altogether, you just received a new reader. What might you suggest in regards to your put up that you just made a few days in the past? Any positive?

  3. Huseyin says:

    You hit the nail on the head. If it hadn’t been for the ooprptunity to go with me, she have never left Germany. I’m not sure she’s been outside of Germany since. What she loved though was when we went to see Starlight Express, in English of course. She adored it even though she couldn’t understand a word of it.
