Editorial: Arts

 

My professional endeavours as an arts journalist began when I started writing for the Milton Keynes Citizen’s ‘GO’ leisure and entertainment supplement.

 

I launched my editorial career in print journalism, as a contributing reporter for the Milton Keynes Citizen newspaper and its affiliated publications.

The Milton Keynes Citizen GO leisure and entertainment supplement was published weekly. It consisted of three sections – What’s On, Music, and Theatre – and I worked on these as a GO writer.

Notably, I previewed and reviewed dance and theatre productions. I was also responsible for pantomime coverage on multiple occasions.

I regularly deputised for the Leisure Editor. Deputising involved compiling the full supplement (sourcing stories and pictures, writing copy, and editing pages).

Georgina has been working for me since 2010 – first as an occasional contributor to the GO leisure supplement of the Milton Keynes Citizen newspaper. It quickly became clear that her knowledge, eagerness and ability to turn around accurate, clean copy should be utilised.

She soon began writing across all the leisure pages, and consistently proved to be an asset. She has stepped in to research and write the entire section in my absence, meeting the challenge with her typically positive style.
