About me

I am a Magazine Journalism postgraduate with an excellent literary grounding, and particularly strong skills in online writing, sub-editing, search engine optimisation and social media strategies. I am passionate about lifestyle and culture; particularly literature, fashion, film, travel, photography and music. I thrive on absorbing information, learning about the latest trends and writing original content. I am also interested in video production and broadcast journalism - I strive to learn as much as I can about all aspects of the industry and its future. My strongest working skills include my self-motivation, thoroughness, accuracy, commitment to tasks and creativity.

Intern

Mayfair Magazine

Apr 2014 - Aug 2015
  • I assisted the Mayfair magazine editorial team for an initial three months before being asked to stay another month. I had individual targets for the month and this means I have to liaise with PR companies, source images and write copy – I was responsible for the travel news page, interiors news page and women's style page and in my final month I produced a seven page spread about Savile Row independently. I have also sub-edited the magazine and attended numerous press events. You can view my online portfolio via mariannefrancoise.wordpress.com/journalism.
