    Editor-in-chiefRoundtable Journal
    London, United KingdomFreelance
    I founded an annual print magazine and blog for women with a readership of 5000+. Each issue of Roundtable Journal is 200 pages dedicated to representation and starting nuanced conversations, all through an intelligent, authentic voice. As editor-in-chief, I compile and edit all written and visual content in each issue consisting of articles, interviews, photo shoots, think pieces and more – ensuring that it all comes together in one cohesive issue. For each issue, I manage and co-ordinate 25+ contributors including writers, photographers and graphic designers. To launch the magazine, I develop and implemented an extensive social media strategy (FB & Instagram), and organically grew followers to 20,000+ and email subscribers to 1000+.
