Artwork by Chloe

We have seen so many creative young people come through Haringey Unchained, either through the editorial department, or as creatives who have submitted work.

Once they leave Haringey Sixth Form College, members of the Haringey Unchained family are welcome to continue publishing their work with us.

We have been so pleased to hear of so many of our students succeeding in their studies and careers after sixth form college. Here is a small selection of what our students have gone on to do:

Chloe: Metropolitan University of London, Animation

Animation by Chloe

Chloe has submitted her work to Haringey since the magazine first began. We have been so privileged to publish a selection of pieces from her collection about Joey and his pet rat. The story has developed and shifted in ways that have seen Chloe integrating history and culture into her piece.

I loved Chloe’s animation that was shown as part of the Haringey Unchained showcase. I’m not sure if it was her intention, but because it looked like it was in a field with red flowers, it seemed to me to be suggesting something to do with WWI and the poppies which have come to symbolise the losses in the war. Because the father character was a lot more faded than the child, it looked like it was something to do with the war casualties and the people who did not come home – fitting for 2018. Either way, it was really impressive work from her, as usual!

Monika, University of Greenwich, Film Studies

Monika was an outstanding student of the English Language and Literature course with Haringey Unchained’s lead teacher, Angie. She has supported the project by helping us with our shows, but also proved herself to be an incredible writer with her English coursework. We are incredibly proud to have these pieces available to view on our blog.

Monika went on to study Film at The University of Greenwich. During her final year there, she directed the following film as part of her final university project. The writer of the script won the award for Best Screenplay in 2019, and the film itself won the Best Broadcast award. It was even screened on television and has its very own IMDB page! Well done to Monika and her partner film writer, Miranda!

How to Bury Your Sins was written by Miranda Lin and directed by Monika Reich

Joseph, University of West London, Law

Joseph joined Haringey Unchained towards the very end of his academic career at Haringey Sixth Form College. He was a dedicated student of English Language and Literature, who submitted a poem to Haringey Unchained towards the end of his final year. Though the magazine was already on press at that point, we were so excited to be able to publish his work online. Joseph even came to our end of year magazine launch and read a poem to the audience. He is now and forever a member of the Haringey Unchained family!

We are thrilled to be able to link to Joseph’s own creative blog, where he publishes his poetry and thoughts on life.


Khadija, University of Warwick, Creative Writing

Khadija was a founding member of Haringey Unchained, and was a participate in our very first edition of the magazine: a broadsheet magazine style 4-page long pamphlet in partnership with the Topolski Studio in London. Her work is riddled throughout this blog, and can be found by doing a search for the name Khadija.

During her undergraduate degree, Khadija produced an incredible collection of poetry. We are so privileged to be able to share that with you here.
