— Ellie Broughton

I am a freelance journalist with eight years’ experience writing for titles including The Independent, VICE, Time Out, The Pool, The Quietus, The F Word, and Caught By The River.

I love covering stories about books and film. I interviewed Nell Zink about how to write a bestselling second novel for 3am and went to the UK’s first feminist porn festival for Refinery29. I wrote about literary bots on Twitter for LitHub and profiled an amazing prison literacy charity for Positive News.

I specialise in stories about health, and I’ve covered health stories for VICE’s health site, Tonic, and NetDoctor. I interviewed a leading GP in the Ebola emergency camps and covered how the sexual health cuts in the UK have affected public health. Before going freelance, I worked as the features editor at the leading magazine for GPs, Pulse, and was named one of MHP’s 30 Under 30 for this work.

I have also produced copywriting for American Express, Martini, VisitBritain and VisitEngland and the Clydesdale & Yorkshire Bank on behalf of The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, Time Out and St James’s House. In 2017 I produced a guide to Lamb’s Conduit Street on behalf of the Rugby School.

I currently work full time in production at Guardian Labs. I have previously worked as a sub-editor for The Independent and a digital production journalist for The Sunday Times, as well undertaking freelance copyediting and proofreading for small independent clients.
