Are books the best gift to give? do books make good gifts
        Pros Year after year without fail, at least one book has made it on to my Christmas list: from the new Jacqueline Wilson book to a Scott Fitzgerald classic. When someone gifts you with a book, it is something you know you will treasure forever because one day that new eyeshadow...
A beginner’s guide to starting a blog blogging, guide, beginners, media, Emily Simms, Kettle Mag
A beginners guide to blogging by a beginner -- I wouldn’t trust that advice, but in actual fact the trained professionals and media gurus will perhaps forget the all-important first steps. Expecting overnight success is unrealistic and a blog is something you have to work on to make sure that what you’re producing is of...
Review: Vapiano
Walking along the streets of London, myself and my family had precisely an hour and a half to find a restaurant before we had to catch our train home. It’s so easy to settle for familiarity at a chain that is placed in every city in the UK but sometimes you want to visit somewhere...
Review: this modern love by Will Darbyshire
    This Modern Love is not your typical book: it may have a beginning, a middle and an end, but the majority of the book was written by the audience. It was a project conducted by Will Darbyshire in which 15,570 people, from 98 countries, from the ages of 12-81 responded, but do not...
Fleet Street and the future of British journalism
For any individual that is even thinking about a career in journalism, the two words: Fleet Street, will spark a fond thought of what others have labelled as the “Street of Shame” and the seagulls that are regarded as the British press. From the 18th century up until the mid-1980s, it was undoubted that it was...
Are young people growing more and more disillusioned with politics?
To say that our country has been in the middle of a political crisis for the last few months, is not a particularly bold statement. We have had the Referendum, the result, followed by the loss of organisation in our two largest parties: Labour and the Conservatives (and UKIP). David Cameron stood down, Corbyn was, and...
5 influential women in British journalism
When compiling this list, researching all the inspiring women that have used their career as a platform for moving young women and journalists, it was incredibly difficult to value one person’s career over another.

How the online world has changed journalism
Journalism has always had the ethos of giving you tomorrow’s news today, but whether it has only rung true in the last twenty years is the question that people don’t like to ask. People that aspired to become journalists wanted to find “that story” which uncovered the truth in a society that sought to hide...
Review: Room by Emma Donoghue
"Room is a book to read in one sitting. When it's over, you look up: the world looks the same but you are somehow different and that feeling lingers for days" - Audrey Niffenegger Emma Donoghue has been a relatively understated author until the publication of Room in 2010, a novel which has not only challenged Donoghue herself, as...
