Saci Lloyd - Author

Before becoming an internationally-acclaimed author and activist, Saci Lloyd has held down a bewildering variety of non-jobs, including being a storyboard artist, a cartoonist, a singer in a band, an animator and a script editor for Camouflage Films.
She recently stepped down as Head of Media at Newham Sixth Form College, but continues her association with the East London college.

Saci's first novel, The Carbon Diaries 2015, was shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and is in development with the BBC, and her third novel Momentum was longlisted for The Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize.

Saci very aware of the market she writes for. She understands their day to day lives and that translates over in the voice of her novels. She is a very strong and vocal advocate within the education sector. Her many years experience working with teenagers in East London gives her a very real and valid insight into how education policies affect the next generation. Her many blogs often criticise the status quo.
