Lauren is a Creative Writing and Journalism graduate who specialises in music journalism and writing fiction. From past sub-editor and deputy editor roles for magazine, she strives to become a freelance writer and venture into editorial work at the same time on magazines or in publishing.
For Lauren, the enterprise project at Soft Touch arts is about getting her work out there and writing for several publications whilst networking with potential clients in the writing industry. She would like support with branding herself as a business, setting up a client base and networking with other professionals in the writing industry. Not only has she honed skills in writing different content, but she has qualifications in photography and is well-practiced with IT software such as the Adobe suites and Microsoft Office. Whilst running her own blog and website, she has self-taught herself a few aspects of marketing and social media. Currently, she reviews and interviews bands for her blog, as well as writing different types of articles and copywriting for new start-up magazine Evade, an online in-depth features publication. She aims to expand her blog into an online publication that celebrates and draws focus on independent venues and artists local to Leicester – not just music, but local food, drink, art and theatre.
