  1. Hi, my name is Lauren and I’m just a girl from the UK who would love to be involved in PLL. I’m an avid reader and studied at Birmingham University for my BA in English Literature and Language. Although I’m a wannabe writer I’m working on my style to make it readeable for at least 200 pages. Is there any chance you need some proof-readers, reviewers or anything of the like for PLL? Thankyou for your time it is very appreciated :).
