Sunetra Senior – Perspectives section writer
Sunetra graduated from Warwick University with a MA in English Literature. After spending some time putting together a thesis that felt like she was submitting to the UN, she acquired a taste/developed an addiction to extensive coverage in general, that resulted in her diverse experimentation as a freelancer. In-between bursts of intensive writing, she enjoys frolicking around London to exercise spatial awareness and remind herself of her carbon-based components: fresh air, good quality food and culture at large are all factors that help in this de-robot (icisation) process. She is also partial to film noir and coffee, and all that is unabashedly subversive.

3 thoughts on “Regular Team

    • Thank you for your query, Andy. The last three articles from the regular writer in question are part of a mini-series of theirs, born from a recent inter-rail trip, whereby they visited the area. These articles are a response/ coverage of their travel. We wouldn’t classify the number of articles dedicated to this topic as a ‘high content’. As far as we are aware, none of our writers have served under the UN or lived in Bosnia. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
