Work history

Currently

Freelance Writer

Www.annahart.net

Mar 2008
  • Experienced freelance writer for a range of magazines and newspapers, including Grazia, STYLIST, GQ, Elle, RED, The Times, The Observer and FHM. Specialises in pop culture, social commentary, reports and trend features. Whilst I really enjoy the buzz of a magazine office, I’ve maintained a love of writing, and have always felt that being a freelance writer is preferable to remaining in a staff job which doesn’t challenge me. Since September 2011, I've worked from my office space in London Fields, writing social commentary pieces, cover interviews, opinion columns and travel/fashion/lifestyle features for a wide variety of magazines, including Red, Stylist, Grazia, Glamour, GQ and Shortlist. In 2013 STYLIST offered me the role of Contributing Editor (Travel) and I now look after the magazine's Travel content on a freelance basis, still working out of my office in London Fields.

2012

Features Editor

Stylist Magazine

Sep 2014 - Aug 2012
  • Commissioning and writing features at STYLIST magazine Having just returned from 15 months overseas, I felt it was important to immerse myself in the UK publishing scene again by taking a staff job, and so began a maternity cover stint at Stylist magazine. STYLIST operate with a small team, and as the number three in command I was given the chance to experience a senior management position at a busy, groundbreaking weekly. I managed a team of three junior members of staff, holding weekly features meetings with them. I also attended all top editorial meetings, suggesting cover imagery, coverlines, layouts and also ideas for themed issues, campaigns and supplements. I continue to write travel reviews and features for STYLIST, and periodically cover the roles of Deputy and Associate Editor. When I left I maintained strong relationships with the team, and regularly contribute features to the magazine. In 2013 they asked me to take on the role of a Contributing Editor at STYLIST, looking after Travel content in the magazine and overseeing our Escape Routes travel section.

2009

Commissioning Editor

Grazia Magazine Bauer Media

Jun 2008 - Jun 2009
  • From May 2007 I’d been a regular in the Grazia office on their features desk, covering the roles of Senior Writer, Features Editor and News Features Director. In July 2008, they offered me the permanent position of Commissioning Editor. As the number two to the Features Director, in Monday conference meetings it was my role to suggest ideas for features and Ten Hot stories, commission pieces speedily and then edit them, all to a fairly tight weekly deadline. Holding a senior editorial position at Grazia also meant I attended weekly coverlines meetings, sketch meetings (where layouts were discussed) and specials meetings, where I was expected to contribute ideas for Grazia’s supplements and special issues. In addition to this, each week I compiled the Barometer (what’s hot) section each week, and regularly wrote Ten Hot stories and larger features. What I enjoyed most about Grazia was the sheer variety of the subject matter, working across the spectrum of celebrity, entertainment, social trends, fashion and beauty content.

2007

Staff Writer

FHM

Aug 2005 - Aug 2007
  • Trainee Junior Writer, then Staff Writer I hugely enjoyed my two years writing for FHM, having read the magazine since I was a teenager, mainly for the outstanding features which were the backbone of mens magazines in the 1990s. I was FHM's first female writer, and as one of only two staff writers I was given some incredible feature-writing opportunities, which were extremely varied in scope. In 2006 I was sent to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to cover the catastrophe and interview survivors, I got exclusive access to, and interviewed, the Pentagon hacker Gary McKinnon, and I interviewed marine snipers for a special report. In addition to pitching and writing FHM features, I quickly became adept at interviewing a wide range of celebrities, including bands such as the Kaiser Chiefs, Motorhead and Kasabian, female cover stars like Kelly Brook and Charlize Theron, and male actors such as Christian Slater and Stephen Dorff. And best of all, Stevie Wonder. I’ve always loved films and music, and was a primary contributor to the music review and film review sections of FHM. As the member of staff most passionate about travel, I oversaw (and largely wrote) FHM’s annual 15-page travel supplement, 100 Great Adventures.
