I’m Megan Downing, an English Literature graduate from University of Southampton. I work for MTV as a Digital Media Intern.
I am the Music, Arts and Culture Editor for The National Student. I am the Membership and Communications Officer for the Student Publication Association, I write about music for 7BitArcade, and contribute regularly to The Culture Trip.
I have a passion for live music and this is where I began in student journalism. Reviewing a gig or festival is still where my heart lies four years on.
One thing you should know about me is that I have an unhealthy obsession with Kevin Spacey.
