Three's a crowd

Fighting Talk is delighted to welcome Kelly Pendergrast to the team. Kelly is just the second girl to join our ranks, and we sincerely hope she'll add more than just the one post our last representative of the XX chromosomes lent us.

Kelly holds an honours degree in film and media studies from Otago University and was last year the art editor at Critic. She has recently finished work on her very own short film: Why I Ate Myself. Later this year she'll be heading to San Diego to further her studies, this time in fine arts.

She has interests in media culture, bodily fluids, and styling her hair in the fashion of Janet Frame -- and she once made gelatine out of her own fingernail clippings.

We think Kelly's special.
