The i Newspaper

iNews freelance writer journalistWorking as a freelance writer within the Online Features team at The i Newspaper, I am responsible for creating interesting, engaging and newsworthy articles on a regular basis.

Mainly focusing on city content (Edinburgh, Glasgow and other major UK cities), I am required to pitch my own ideas as well as write up briefs given to me by the editorial team. Articles range from top 10 lists to in-depth interviews.

Part of my job¬†involves keeping up to date with all the latest news in key cities, particularly Edinburgh, in order to find stories which would work well for The i’s audience. This covers a variety of topics, including food and drink, work culture, entertainment, film and TV, music and lifestyle.

I am often required to contact sources for interview, organise guest articles with key contributors and obtain relevant images for each article, in addition to writing up the articles themselves – always keeping The i’s tone of voice and target audience in mind.

Working at The i has strengthened my ability to work to tight deadlines, as well as my capability for creating engaging and sharable content that brings readers to the website.
