Editorial: News


As a journalist, I am experienced in writing news stories, features, previews, reviews, interviews and advertorials.


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

For ten years, my words featured in print and online in innumerable articles. I specialised in covering the arts and education.

I was responsible for editing the Schools and Learning pages in the Milton Keynes Citizen newspaper. This role involved building and maintaining relationships with nurseries, schools and colleges across Milton Keynes.

Other editorial responsibilities included deputising for the Leisure Editor. This entailed compiling the entire GO leisure and entertainment supplement (sourcing stories and pictures, writing copy, and editing pages).
