I’m Jess, a writer, English Literature graduate, guitarist and creative powerhouse from Manchester. I have experience at several magazines including Red, and The University of Sheffield online mag (of which I was editor.) I currently work full-time as the Junior Marketing Copywriter at flash sales site BrandAlley, and freelance interviewing up-and-coming rock and indie bands for subscription service Flying Vinyl. I am nifty with a keyboard, a pen and a Dictaphone. I am thrilled when I get to try something new and I learn quickly. I’m all-in, all for it, and the most dedicated, cheerful member you'll ever have on your team.Locked Pro Plan feature
Once a place of retreat and extra-curricular interest, The Wolf in the City is now my online portfolio. Here, you will find un-edited interviews, poems and features.
After recommendation from Head Buyer Caroline Withey, I became the marketing team's sole copywriter. In this role I write targeted creative copy for morning informative and afternoon editorial-style e-mails. I frequently write copy for advertisements, banners, sliders, print media, blog and social.
Cold e-mails and staunch determination landed me the role of band interviewer at subscription service Flying Vinyl. Since February, I have conducted interviews with seven bands including The Bay Rays, Our Girl and The Wytches. Working alone, I research, interview, transcribe and create features based on the interviews I conduct.
At nineteen, I interned at this free Mancunian magazine. The Easter 2013 edition of Viva contains fourteen of my articles including an interview (adapted from a press release) with Robbie Williams. Three of the articles were featured on the front cover. At Viva, I also interviewed chef James Martin, Theo Paphitis, The Feeling and, at VOGUE Fashion's Night Out, designers Erdem and Jonathon Saunders, and VOGUE editor-in-chief Alexandra Schulman.
I was elected editor-in-chief of this online publication by fellow Liberty Belle Society members. Once elected, I created a new branding for the magazine, focusing on the strap-line "Student Life in Lights." With this new creative direction, I managed a team of ten sub-editors and their writers, editing and creating copy for the site.
A multi award-winning video production and content marketing company in Manchester, I produced content for Tunafish's blog and blogs of their clients. I also specialised in social media and PR, handling a fashion account alone for a month.
I was headhunted by the editor of I Love MCR because of the writing skills I showcased at Viva magazine. I produced copy on food, fashion, and culture for the magazine and attended several events as a representative of the brand. I supported the editor in successful sales meetings, one of which secured the magazine an annual advertising deal with the Thai Leisure Group.
I spent four weeks at Manchester-based PR company “Manc” Frank in the summer of 2014 because I wanted to understand the reverse side of journalism. I was involved in several accounts, stirring interest in the press. I completed press releases and scoured the daily newspapers for mentions of our several accounts whilst joining in on creative meetings and discussions.
