Lifestyle articles and columns
Emma has written numerous features, articles, interviews and columns for regional and local newspapers and magazines, including Surrey Life, Kent Life, Berkshire Life, Sussex Life, Sussex Style, Cotswolds Family Life, South London Press and Baby London. Topics have ranged from coastal management issues in Sussex to art installations in Berkshire; profiles of local business personalities to perfect locations for a Valentine's day proposal (aw!)
On top of these freelance feature articles, Emma writes a regular 'Little Kent' column about family life, news and events for Kent Life, which has appeared in print every single month from mid 2011 until the present day. She wrote its sister column, 'Little Surrey' for Surrey Life from 2007 until 2013. Emma also writes a monthly full-page feature in Kent Life on behalf of the National Trust, which began in April 2011 and has continued uninterrupted ever since.
Emma has also reviewed professional theatre in Epsom, Guildford, Wimbledon and Kingston for the Surrey Life website and is keen to expand this area of writing further. She has reviewed children's and adult theatre, from light comedy to serious tragedy; musical theatre to mime. She has learnt from the best - her father is an award-winning journalist who has reviewed theatre professionally in Bristol, Gloucester and the south west of England for The Stage newspaper for almost 50 years.
During her time in PR agencies and in-house press office roles, she has also seen countless press releases and written materials appear in trade newspapers and magazines as diverse as The Grocer, Disability Now, Architect's Digest and Warehouse & Logistics News.
