About

Hello...I'm Liz and I'm a freelance arts writer and editor. I write about music, film, television and literature for a number of publications including NME, Evening Standard, The Guardian, The Independent, The i, Crack Magazine, The Quietus, Gigwise, Drowned in Sound and more. 

I am an experienced news writer, critic and features writer and I have interviewed lots of people from across the arts in music, film and television. Some of the people I've spoken to recently include...Andrew Garfield, Christine and the Queens, Sons of Kemet, Simon Pegg, Jenna Coleman, Yoko Ono, Shirley Manson, Cypress Hill, Billy Howle, Charlie Heaton, Lisa Stansfield, The Boxer Rebellion, Nicky Wire, Jen Cloher, Steve Aoki, Nadine Shah, Giles Martin, The National, Michael Giacchino, Nicholas Winding Refn, James Lavelle, Greta Gerwig, Ken Loach, Mike Leigh, Yann Tiersen...and many more. 

In addition to arts writing, I also write about gender, social policy and education for The Guardian, EdCentral, TES and The Education Support Partnership.

I have a first class BA (Hons) degree in English Language, Literature and Linguistics from The University of Manchester together with an  MA in language, gender and cultural studies. I have a PGCE and an NCTJ Diploma in Journalism with gold standard. 

When I'm not writing, I can usually be found listening to music, watching The Simpsons or despairing at Donald Trump's latest tweets.
