I am a recent BA Philosophy graduate (2:1) who is keen to progress their career in arts journalism and/or editing. Currently, I am working as a freelance journalist for award-winning (Best Digital Publication 2009) music publication 'The Quietus', and have been writing for various other publications over the course of the last two years. I also have previous experience as a volunteer editor for the University of Sussex students' newspaper, 'The Badger' where for the weekly printed newspaper I procured writing from students and used Adobe InDesign to design page layouts. As these placements have called for the promotion of content via digital media, I am thoroughly comfortable with using Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. Although I do not personally have an Instagram, I am more than comfortable with using the app.
I write reviews on a freelance basis for music and culture publication 'The Quietus'.
Duties included: contacting promoters for guest passes and interviews; editing articles and layouts using InDesign; writing weekly features and opinion pieces; contacting writers and brainstorming pitches.
Working within a small team of award-winning journalists, I was involved during the production of the April edition of The Stool Pigeon. Working to tight deadlines, I contributed my own articles to their online website using Wordpress and basic HTML. Using the Internet, I sourced and secured contracts with further stockists for the magazine; researched and compiled information in preparation for Record Store Day and researched sources and used these to update the Twitter feed. Other responsibilities included updating spreadsheets using Microsoft Excel; filing incoming press releases; organising promotional CDs for review and liaising with major record labels and PR companies.
