About me
Freelance copywriter and journalist. With a passion for all things cultural, I write engaging and entertaining copy, press releases, newsletters, web content and articles. I have excellent research skills and I'm always looking for an interesting project to lend creative words. I also have experience editing both creative work and informative editorial. I create SEO friendly content, can upload content via CMS and write in a tone that reflects brand identity. I am interested in writing about and researching: travel, arts and culture, products, entertainment, and social issues.

  • Same Teens @ Manchester International Festival
    Same Teens @ Manchester International FestivalFor MIF09 I co-ordinated a gig for 15-19 year olds at the Manchester Pavilion. Mystery Jets, Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), Esser and Televised Crimewave performed. Alongside the gig was a series of fringe art workshops and exhibitions, documented in the video below. Sarah Maple took over a shop window at the House Of Fraiser, with a performance titled “I’m An Edgy Contemporary Artist”. I organised a talks series with photographer Gavin Watson and musician Tim Burgess, who spoke about getting into the creative industries. I also edited a zine with contributions from performers at the festival.

  • Let's Start A Pussy Riot
    Let's Start A Pussy RiotThe dialogue so explosively ignited by Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich continues in the book Let’s Start A Pussy Riot. Exclusively created in collaboration with the group, this publication brings together artists, writers and poets the book explores feminism, LGBT rights, the power of collaboration and the role art plays in activism. the topics of women’s rights, freedom of speech and power of collaboration through the personal voices of Judy Chicago, Yoko Ono, Antony Hegarty, Kim Gordon, and many more. Back in March 2012, when Pussy Riot were first arrested, four women (some of whom run feminist collectives in London) teamed up to put on a fundraiser, and this collaboration turned into ‘Let’s Start a Pussy Riot’. Seeing such strong activism for causes they believe in became a ‘click moment’, and they wanted the chance to support, create and activate responses with as many people as possible. Curated by Emely Neu and edited by Jade French, the book is made in association with Beth Siveyer (Girls Get Busy) and Verity Flecknell (Storm in a Teacup) and will be published by Rough Trade Records with all profits going directly to Pussy Riot.
