Journalism Internship in Brasov, Romania.

Last summer I managed to combine two passions of mine, travel and writing, by undertaking a journalism internship in the Romanian city of Brasov.
The internship was a voluntary placement organised with the company Projects Abroad ( I worked on The Village magazine, which promotes the real Romania to tourists and locals alike.

It was an amazing experience; I got to travel all over Transylvania, visit remote villages and meet inspiring people. I also had several articles published in the magazine. Unfortunately the English version is only available in print and not online, but I have written an account of my experience for the Projects Abroad website which can be found here:
For any Romanian speakers, or any one who would like to look at some pretty pictures of Romanian scenery, then please visit the website:

Just a quick hello...

and a message to say that I have finally caught up with modern technology and decided to start a blog (obviously). However, as it's taken me pretty much all day, playing with fonts and backgrounds, to set up this thing I will keep this first post brief and just outline what I do.

Here goes...

I'm a freelance writer of both fact and fiction. I have been writing for about five years now and have had several articles and short stories published in print and online. I have also recently completed a degree in Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University and graduated with a 2:1.
I will be using this blog as a platform to showcase my previous and upcoming work.

Sorry it's brief, I promise my next post will be better and actually have some substance to it.
