Chief Sub-editor

Artefact Magazine

Aug 2014 - Apr 2015
  • As Chief Sub-Editor for the London College of Communication student online and print publication Artefact Magazine, I lead a team of two other sub-editors for five magazines with a print run of 10,000 each issue. My editing duties involved checking spelling, grammar, accuracy, legal and house style, as well as ensuring articles fit print specifications and met deadlines. For my own content, I produced numerous articles on a wide variety of topics, from in-depth scientific tech articles on AI and Synthetic Biology featuring interviews with scientists, authors and tech companies, to news coverage featuring interviews with North Korean or Iraqi refugees, to interviewing ethical strippers and learning how to pole dance, to attending a protest march with Anonymous. Artefact Magazine gave me the opportunity to develop a number of skills across all fronts. To name a few skills I exhibited during my time working for the magazine: a strong competence in interviewing people from all different backgrounds, hitting multiple deadlines in the same day, as well as working with my team to provide a second-to-none editing.

On top of running the site, managing a staff of 10 and a network of freelancers, I led our communication with PR, ran our social media sites (Twitter/FB/G+) and decided on the editorial tone of the website. I also wrote thousands of news articles, hundreds of interviews and was co-host of the podcast. Not only that, but I wrote the influencial daily editorial feature which consists of hundreds of feature length articles back-to-back on a wide range of multiplatform topics for over a year, every single day. My standards of journalism for the site and its staff were extremely high, leading to an unusually ethical, intelligent and trustworthy publication.
