As well as appearing in national newspapers my writing has also been featured in a number of consumer magazines.
These include two Nottingham-based culture magazines, one of which, LeftLion, is the most widely read free magazine in the region. Among the articles I wrote were a piece on Islamophobia in British culture following on from the London bombings, and a profile of a local actress who had just had a big break in a major box-office film, Kidulthood.
The other magazine, Exposed, sadly no longer has a Nottingham office and has closed its website (although it still runs a Sheffield edition). I wrote a raft of features for Exposed on many different topics, and was privelaged to interview several big names, including fashion designer Paul Smith, Oscar-winning actor Jim Broadbent and Nottingham’s Michelin-starred chef and star of Great British Menu Sat Bains.I wrote several restaurant, club and gig reviews as well as general features on Nottingham culture.
I did a stint of cover work at digital content agency Zone where I worked on the Film 4 site website pictures desk, researching, uploading and editing images for the web. I also assisted the editorial team with writing copy and planning weekly schedules for the website.
