EDITING

 

Since April 2011, I've been a contributing editor/media advisor with the International Network of Street Papers (INSP). The INSP has a news service which provides free content to its 120 members worldwide which enhances street papers' quality and sales while at the same time helping thousands of homeless people to improve their lives.

 

My role is to commission/edit stories about pressing issues in developing African nations and to build links with the mainstream press in Britain in order to raise awareness of current events. INSP has provided content to - among others - The Guardian, BBC, Scotland On Sunday, The Herald, Sunday Herald and Al Jazeera.

In 2012, INSP’s news service was short-listed for Best Specialist Site for Journalism at the Online Media Awards which seeks to recognise the cream of online news and journalism from around the world. In receiving a nomination INSP was ranked alongside journalistic heavyweights such as The Guardian, Reuters, Bloomberg, Financial Times and eventual joint winners The Economist and the theartsdesk.com.
