Humans Of Mojo

Humans of Mojo is Brighton’s answer to the hugely successful Humans of New York! Every week, someone is featured to tell us a little bit about themselves, why they come to Mojo, or simply to tell us an interesting story. Keep coming in to Mojo – and you could be featured!

Tom, a writer and regular at Mojo, originally came to Brighton in 1982 for a weekend visit from Paris. He now lives here full time.

“I’ve been coming to Mojo since shortly after it opened, as it’s on the way to the library. One day, it was just here. I like Mojo because I feel comfortable here, it’s just the right distance from home where I do most of my writing. I bring my work down here to edit, so I can sit, think about my own work and occasionally meet some interesting people when I don’t have my nose stuck into my work. The staff are friendly and great to talk to. If the work is good then I don’t hear any of the café. Once the café comes into the world that I’ve made, I realise that I’m not focused.”

Pearls of Wisdom

“The trick with writing is to be lazy; you make as much work as it is.”

“The best thing about writing is everything becomes material.”

“If someone’s willing to criticise your work, it means you’re worth something.”

“I’ve been working for Mojo since September, but I’m originally from Italy. I love working at Mojo because I love drinking coffee! My favourite meal to eat here is the scrambled egg with mushrooms. In my free time, I love drawing and creating art.” – Martina

“I’m originally from Norwich, and I’ve been working at Mojo for about 3 months now. My favourite part about my job is the community vibe. I’m also a big fan of the House Smoothies, and love eating the chicken and chorizo paninis. In my free time I make music, and I’m currently working on writing an album.” – Steve

“I’ve been working here for 2 years now. I’m originally from Salisbury, but now I’m studying Nursing at Brighton University. My favourite thing about working at Mojo is probably the atmosphere, it’s really friendly and family orientated. My favourite food? Probably the chicken and chorizo panini, and to drink it’s peppermint tea. In my free time I love baking, and drinking tea of course!” – Lucy
