Ed Bell, United Kingdom / France
An Englishman in Paris. Ever since a 17-year old Ed Bell visited the city, it has held a special sway and magic. Swift transactions in bistros and even swifter metro rides are delights in an architecturally varied environment, where correspondences appear around every corner.
After studying French literature at the University of Oxford, Ed came to live in the city in 2014. *Blue Wit * was the name of his first independent artistic project which mixed poetry recitation with Bossa guitar. He got involved with Paris Lit Up shortly after and has now a number of responsibilities in the association, such as hosting, magazine layout and treasure, among other things.
Ed is looking forward to being able to share his passion for French culture with us, as it will make a refreshing change to his English language classes. To see the kind of things he looks for in literature and art, follow Ed on Twitter @egb2025 or read his blog.
