Lifestyle editor and business feature-writer for West Briton newspaper

About this project

As well as designing and managing a new lifestyle section, I planned and wrote features about business in Cornwall.


I wrote many, many business features as a senior staff reporter at Cornwall’s flagship weekly newspaper. Topics included Brand Cornwall, the EU funding gap, town planning, the expansion of Superfast Broadband and transport links to the county.

I also wrote features about food, tourism, culture and outdoor activities for the paper’s new lifestyle section (March 2015), as well as creating, forward-planning and editing content for the spread.
