Welcome to this little slice of the internet

Allycat is an online magazine full of often witty, occasionally heartfelt, and somewhat misguided content. Here you will find topical articles brimming with satire and parody alongside the odd poem.

This crevice of the dark web is a place that finds humour in current events and social trends, a place to escape the seriousness of your other news outlets and, to be honest, take the piss a bit. After all, the world is a massive joke.

If you are looking for a healthy dollop of cynicism with a dash of romanticism, you’ll feel right at home here.

To get the full experience, grab a cuppa before you proceed. To level up, accompany yourself with a Pinot Noir, a pint, a massive cake or a small fluffy friend (not a euphemism).

The Ally behind Allycat

Surprise, it’s not a spelling mistake folks.

Ally, otherwise known as Alex (and a stream of other, not always flattering, nicknames) is the creator, editor in chief, president and dictator of Allycat. She is also a twenty something queer woman living in London. Originally from Cambridge, she migrated to the big city in a bid to spice up her life, to quote the girls.

Having trained as an actress (darling), Alex had always been an avid writer. The shift into pursuing it as a career came when her first play, MEGA, was produced at the Tristan Bates Theatre in 2019. A taste of creative freedom and room to explore her work in a more playful way instigated the catalogue of work she has since subjected people to.

Ally is pretty into writing for theatre and TV, but there is just no shutting her up. So, in between these projects and worming her way into producers’ inboxes, Allycat is an outlet for her ramblings.

Aside from being utterly hilarious and criminally charming, Ally is a keen cook. She likes to think of herself as a plant based, slightly less voluptuous (gutted) Nigella. She also LOVES a boogie, is partial to a g&t and has a soft spot for a good old long walk. How relatable does she sound? Don’t you just wanna be her bff?
