Writer, Blogger, Netball lover. That’s how I describe myself on twitter so I’m sticking to it. Originally from Durham, I’ve spent the past five years in London working in digital media. Today, I can be found at Grazia magazine as their Community Editor looking after the blogger community, social media, the weekly newsletter as well as writing for Grazia Daily.
All other professional experience is viewable on my LinkedIn page.
Topics of discussion for my own blog are normally; everyday feminism, the hilarity of being a 27 year old woman, views on the news, creative writing and…everything in between. There’s also a section dedicated to guest blogs. To be part of it you don’t have to be a writer, just have an opinion or an experience that compels you to write!
If you are interested in working with me or writing for the guest blog drop me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
