I spent a week at The Sheffield Star in June 2019. I received very positive feedback and saw four of my pieces published in the paper. All four were featured on the cover, one of which was the main cover story for the day.
Bradley Welsh was tragically killed back in April. I had trained in his gym during my undergraduate degree in Edinburgh and never imagined I’d be writing about his death in such circumstances.
Here’s a short film review I wrote for film blog, Bedsit Cinema. I hadn’t written on film for a while and wanted to make sure I hadn’t forgotten how…
I had the opportunity to conduct a Q&A with rising amateur star Caroline Dubois earlier this year. Caroline is one to watch and will make waves both at the Olympics and as a pro when she turns over.
I recently had the opportunity to cover the US Air Force flypast over Sheffield and interview local hero, Tony Foulds, as well as a USAF airman. The full article is featured on the website of The American Magazine and will be in their next print issue.
I did my own photography for the feature and am very pleased with how the images have turned out. I’m looking forward to seeing them in print.
Here’s my latest article, a piece for 5W Football, discussing what could be a turbulent upcoming transfer window for Manchester United.
5W encourage long-form writing and it was great to dig up some statistics and cover United’s transfer difficulties in depth. I enjoyed looking at potential replacements for big-name players. Let’s see if Ole agrees with any of my picks…
In the last few week’s I’ve started hosting and editing the SouthpawJab.com podcast. It’s been great fun but there’s been a learning curve too.
The show features interviews with boxers and promoters as well as reviews and previews of matches, big and small. We always examine a betting angle for the week’s boxing at the end of the show too.
The pod is available through Apple podcasts, Anchor, the Southpaw Jab site and via a variety of other podcast providers.
In these latest articles, I’ve covered more boxing but also had the opportunity to write for a new site, Boxing Insider. I got the opportunity to review a set of Corner ‘punch trackers’ for them which was an interesting chance to mix boxing with technology writing and reviewing.
Currently, I’m researching the viability of a TV comedy magazine for my MA Magazine Journalism course. Is this something you would read? I need your help.
