I'm a German-Polish writer, socks-in-bed kind of world citizen, and journalism student at London College of Communication, using the art of writing to start conversations about contemporary human issues.Locked Pro Plan feature
I wrote copy for this graphene company in Somerset to help them communicate their first experience with an intern, and to promote upcoming opportunities.
Peterborough Loves was an independently run website. Its editor and main writer gave college students, like myself at the time, the opportunity to submit reviews, news articles and features that we sourced, wrote, and pitched ourselves. I have produced all of the categories mentioned for this publication, mainly focusing on news articles and short features. The website had to be shut down because the owner couldn't find enough contributors, but all copy can still be found on my portfolio here: https://annika98loebig.wixsite.com/portfolio/text-
I achieved my first bylines in the Peterborough Telegraph, and also landed my first double page spread after interviewing Jesse McClure from storage hunters at truckfest.
I produced copy for a letting agency that at the time focused on smart living.
I contacted the most talented students from Peterborough Regional College to talk about their creative work in music. Some of the copy of those profile features can be found on my online portfolio.
The local newspaper of the town I lived in back home in Norway was the first physical publication I contributed to. I wrote features about a swing class that consisted of four teenagers enjoying one night a week dancing with elderly people, news articles about local band performances, and more.
I'm currently in my first year at LCC, where we get to advance our writing in all kinds of genres, as well as gain multimedia skills within radio, broadcast and design.
I completed a two year course in media and journalism at PRC. Here I improved my interviewing and writing skills, gained experience in the industry, and learned more about media theories. The course gave me the opportunity to grow a lot outside of its course, by providing me with opportunities like interviewing celebrities, producing a magazine and creating a portfolio and CV I can use later on in my career.
I received the "High Achiever Award" in my first year of college for exclusively submitting distinction level assignments and producing work outside of the course.
