MWiB Communications Officer 2016-2021
Jude is Communications Officer for MWiB, 2016-2021.
Originally from Sheffield, I’ve lived in the Midlands, Leicestershire, Bristol, County Durham, West Yorkshire, back to Sheffield, then to Cumbria, and Castle Donington. In July 2019 we (that is, me, husband John, our cat Horatio, and Derek the snake) moved back to Sheffield. We have two grown up sons and a daughter-in-law living and working in Sheffield.
In 2015 I completed an undergraduate degree in English, and in 2016 an MA in Creative Writing. I’m currently writing my first crime fiction novel, and I also work as a freelance proofreader and editor. I’ve recently taken on the job of Editor for ArtServe, an ecumenical group of people with a passion for creative arts in the church. In my spare time I enjoy singing, playing clarinet, reading, and making scrapbook photograph albums.
I’ve been a member of the Methodist Church since 1988, during which time I’ve held various offices, including District Secretary and District President for Women’s Network, and Connexional President in 2008-9 as part of the team that brought MWiB into being.
