punmonger, content-monkey & perennial over-sharer
Hello my name is Natalie. Sometimes I like to pretend I’m a Proper Writer & chuck articles at people. I’ve been published on & offline (do we really still differentiate between print & digital?) in The Independent, The Sunday Times, New Statesman, Skeptic Magazine & Liberal Conspiracy. I mostly write about feminism, pop culture, politics & the internet.
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 tweeting me @unfortunatalie
My day job is in content & marketing; I can mostly be found writing about publishing technology & digital transformation over at Ixxus.
I used to run the BBCQT Tweet-a-long (As featured in The Guardian, The Londonist and TotalPolitics) at Hackney Attic; an evening of politics, twitter and beer, with appearances from comedians and political speakers. I don’t do that anymore. It was nice though! We had a nice time.
I am interested in: left-field music, left-wing politics, the internet, digital rights, social media, feminism, gender, critical theory, webcomics, fandom, queer space, etymology, wordplay, puns, anomalous psychology, quantum physics, technology, publishing, subculture, alternative comedy, sleep disorders, mental health, scandinavia, germanic languages, pop culture, pop psychology, pop music, fairweather freeganism, protest tourism, imposter syndrome, cups of tea, buffy the vampire slayer, wine.
I dig: thinking too much, drinking too much and being thoroughly inappropriate in almost all situations.
I can: play the spoons, type at over 100wpm and deliver a lamb.
