I’m Sarah, and here’s what you need to know about me:
I’m a writer, editor, and social media addict. A potted version of my career history looks something like this:
- I wrote and implemented Dacorum Borough Council’s social media policy in 2010
- I was part of Wired UK’s launch team in 2009, editing the culture and leisure section
- I launched Den of Geek with Simon Brew in 2007
- …and I was a staff writer on Micro Mart magazine from 2006-2008.
As a freelancer, I’ve written for a variety of print and online publications, including 360 Gamer, Amazon, AOL Asylum, ComputerActive, Cult Times, Dacorum Digest, Film4, Haunted, Hotdog, Instant Expert technology guides, IT Pro, Lionsgate’s Fright Club, NEO, Penny Blood, Rue Morgue, SciFiNow, and SFX. I ran the website for the first ever London International Technology Show, and I managed a YouTube channel for Universal Comedy.
Some of my recent(ish) work:
- Organised Den of Eek! A Night of Spooky Stories;
- Wrote a list of 50 genuinely creepy horror movies for Den of Geek;
