Wordmonger, content-writer, bad pun-maker & over-tweeter; grew up with the sheep, currently London-based.
I run the BBCQT Tweet-a-long at Hackney Attic, a monthly(ish) evening of politics, twitter and beer, with appearances from comedians and political speakers to kick things off. It’s kind of niche & was sort of an accident.
My day job is in web content, social media & digital marketing; sometimes I like to pretend I’m a ‘freelance writer’ & chuck articles at people. I’ve had stuff published online on The Independent, The Times, Skeptic Magazine & Liberal Conspiracy; one time I sent a piece to The Guardian Comment is Free but they told me it was “a bit too meta for CiF”. I thought that this was the funniest thing anyone had ever said.
If you want me to write a thing you can find me at natfguest[at]gmail[dot]com, although you’ll probably get a faster response by just tweeting me @unfortunatalie
If you need someone to sing or hit things (drums; people), I am capable of both of these.
Qualifications: I have a degree & whatnot (English).
I am interested in: left-field music, left-wing politics, the internet, digital rights, social media, traditional media, feminism, gender, activism, critical theory, webcomics, fandom, queer theory, etymology, wordplay, puns, scepticism, anomalous psychology, literature, quantum physics, alternative comedy, sleep disorders, mental health, scandinavia, germanic languages generally, pop anthropology, pop psychology, pop music, fairweather freeganism, protest tourism, cups of tea, buffy the vampire slayer, gin.
