Trashionista gets to grips with the wonderful world of female fiction. Taking an unbiased look at beach reads, bestsellers, new releases and old favourites, this is a site that doesn’t believe that 'chick lit' is a dirty word. Combining reviews and previews with exclusive author interviews, guest blogs, industry news and film / TV updates, Trashionista has been at the heart of the female fiction industry since 2005.
Strong on community and comment, Trashionista provides fans of chick lit and women’s fiction with a reliable source of information and a great place for discussion. Edited by a team of devoted writers who know the industry inside and out (many Trashionista writers have published novels of their own) it is as highly respected in the industry as it is with fans of the genre.
Elle Symonds - Editor
Elle's love of books began when she was first old enough to hold one, and a love for writing stories swiftly followed. It was hardly surprising that when she grew up, she wanted to become a writer.
Elle studied Journalism and Creative Writing at University, and around this time became quickly hooked on female fiction. Yet another love affair began, only this time with the genre known as 'chick lit'. Needless to say, writing for Trashionista is a dream role.
As well as writing for Trashi, Elle is a Marketing assistant for a leading recruitment and training company. She is also an aspiring novelist, with her first chick-lit novel currently in the hands of a literary agent. With a passion for female fiction and the publishng industry, Elle aims to bring the latest chick-lit news, reviews and interviews to Trashionista's readers.
Besides writing for Trashionista, Elle has contributed to a variety of sites - specialising in lifestyle, careers and literature - including BitchBuzz, Shiny Shiny and Mookychick.
