The Team

Our Founder/Head Editor 

Kirsty Taylor

Kirsty is a 23 year old student teacher and the founder of Continue The Voice. When she is not teaching or competing in triathlons. She is drinking wine, writing poetry or podcasting. You can check out her podcast here, and her poetry here. You will see her featured on quite a few pieces of work as she likes to get stuck in. 

Art Director

Manon Marrum

Manon is a 21 year old media student and all round busy bee. She can be found in the library, working on shoots in front of the camera, telling people what to do on the other side of the camera, writing scripts, or (more often than not) googling restaurant menus wine in hand. As well as the work she does with Continue The Voice, you can keep up with her latest projects through her Instagram.

Deputy Editor

Hannah Matheson

Hannah is a marketing student based in Aberdeen and is the editor for Continue The Voice. When she is not trying to get the perfect shot of her dog for Instagram or rewatching the same Netflix show for the twelfth time, you can find her with a strong coffee neck deep into unsolved crime documentaries or working on her next work of art which occasionally features on her Instagram.

Graphic Designer 

Anna McFarlane 

Anna is a communications & advertising graduate. She is hoping to return to university and study a masters in graphic design in the not too distant future but has been enjoying putting that off by traveling around as much of the world as possible in the mean time. Her portfolio of some experimental creative work can be found here.


Sophie Freestone 

Sophie’s first children’s book was published soon after she graduated from the Falmouth School of Art in Cornwall. However, she decided to put art on hold and pursue her other life’s passion for a while: skiing. She spent a ski season in the French Alps last winter and will be returning to the mountains next month. However, Sophie really enjoys illustration projects when she has the time, such as getting involved in the first issue of Continue The Voice. You can find more of Sophie's work here.
