I contributed several dynamic and often eye-opening pieces over six months for the youth-orientated music and entertainments magazines of this campaigning publisher, including spoof horoscopes and agony aunt columns and journalistic articles about regeneration and other issues. I also managed the company’s ‘Save Five Ways’ campaign which resulted in a major front-page feature in Birmingham News and an appearance on Channel 5 News.
You can read examples from that work in my 2009 Writing Sampler – click here to download it. I’m particularly pleased with the satiric horoscopes and Agony column which are even more witty, dark, surreal, shocking and unexpected than my usual!
Pieces I wrote included:
- Spoof horoscopes
- Spoof Agony column
- ‘5 Steps to Becoming the Band of 2008’ article
- Campaigning Press Releases
- Researched journalistic article addressing crucial issues of urban regeneration and independent businesses, as part of the Save Five Ways campaign.
