Chloe Combi’s debut nonfiction title Generation Z: Their Voices, Their Lives (Random House 2015) is a shocking, illuminating, heart breaking and sometimes hilarious journey through the lives of the teenagers born between 1994 and 2005 – as told in their own voices. Its impact as ‘an important and timely book’ (Anthony Horowitz) has already seen Chloe Combi speaking at many high profile events including Google Talk, Edinburgh Book Festival, Latitude Festival and the London Festival of Education.
An education consultant and specialist on youth issues, Chloe Combi has written major features for the Guardian, Independent, Daily Mail, New Statesman and the Huffington Post as well as making regular appearances on radio and television, including Sky News, Channel 4 News, Woman’s Hour, Radio One, RTE, Talk Radio Europe and Talksport. Chloe is also the founder of the educational charity Write Club, which aims to raise the aspirations and achievements of state educated teenagers and from January 2016 it will be attached to the Eastside Young Leaders Academy (EYLA). Write Club has attracted speakers including Derren Brown, Will Self and Nick Hornby. Chloe lives and works in London.
