journalism and contact

I’m a journalist specialising in feminist reaction to popular culture. Geeky and/or lady-centric culture in particular. Which means I write mostly about women, sexuality and feminism and also about TV and pop culture. I like ladies’/girls’/women’s culture a lot (examples of my obsessions with Twilight and Titanic below). I also like to write about radical femininity, sex positive feminism and fatness. I think TV is pretty great.

I am also very interested in writing about comedy. I’m a stand up, comedy writer and comedy reviewer. (And when I was a kid, I taped radio 4 sitcoms instead of the charts.)

I write an excellent blog about feminism and femininity called Femme Ephemera.

I contribute regularly to the Guardian in the TV and comment sections.

I also contribute to The F Word, where, up until recently, I was the TV and video games editor, and where I also write culture reviews.



I am a senior reviewer and Brighton editor for Fringe Guru – arts reviewing is a huge passion and I’m particularly interested in writing about stand up comedy as an artform and the borderlines between stand up and theatre.
