During a period working at international news agency Barcroft Media I wrote numerous stories which featured in every major national newspaper and some national consumer and newspaper magazines.
It was a hugely valuable experience in which I learnt many important skills including writing to a national newspaper style, the importance of thorough and accurate research often under extreme pressure and how to make a story saleable to a national.
These stories, covering a range of fascinating consumer topics, were based on considerable research and interviews, often visiting sites and assisting in photography.
The subjects * were varied and often unusual, such as this story which appeared in The Sun about Meerkats or the following piece on a wildlife photogrpaher who went to the heights of the jungle to get a great snap, which appeared in The Telgraph and The Sun.
*please note that the rights to all of the above are owned by the newspapers which carry each story, and in most cases have been edited or rewritten by in-house reporters. I am not claiming to have produced these articles exactly as they appear, or own copyright to any of them.
