Kerrang! Magazine

Dec 2015
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Internship
  • Completed a week’s work experience at Kerrang!. At end of week, editor James McMahon asked to see my writing. His verdict? “Yeah – it’s brilliant. There’s personality in there – loads of it, and I think that’s the one thing you can’t really teach.” James gave me a job on the spot. Staff writers commented on how they’d never seen this happen before. By my second published piece for the magazine, I’d been added to the Kerrang! masthead
