As a writer, it is important to write things. From June 2013 to December 2014 I was a copywriter for Feral Interactive, producing both marketing texts and internal documents. Prior to that, I was a freelance journalist – a field I am now re-entering. Here are some websites and publications I’ve contributed non-marketing words to:
I wrote reviews for PCG as a freelancer between October 2012 and May 2013. Though I wrote for the print edition, two of my reviews – Scribblenauts Unlimited and The Showdown Effect – are available online.
A sadly defunct PC gaming blog. I contributed long-form features, reviews and opinion pieces between 2010 and 2012.
A lovely general games site. I wrote for BeefJack on a volunteer basis from November 2011 to November 2012, mainly contributing news articles as well as occasional reviews, previews and features. All my articles can be found here.
Gair Rhydd and Quench
Cardiff University’s award-winning newspaper and fortnightly magazine. For Quench, I’ve written various articles on a range of music, film and theatre (scans here), and in October 2011 I successfully pitched an opinion column for Gair Rhydd; this has since been posted online along with the rest of the issue.
I spent a week’s work experience at ‘the Adver’ whilst at secondary school. My duties involved writing short news stories, conducting interviews and vox-pops, and shadowing senior reporters. You can view scans of the articles I researched and wrote by clicking here and here.
I also ran The Slow Roast, a short-lived cookery blog, throughout 2014.
I hold a First Class (Honours) degree in Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies from Cardiff University, and an OCN Level 3 in Journalism from Cirencester College.
