Hello! I’m Carly-May, a freelance journalist based in Brighton, Sussex.
During my time at university I have been involved in two student papers, The Edge and the Wessex Scene. I was the Live Editor of The Edge from 2016-2018, I was the Wessex Scene’s Opinion Editor from 2016-17 and their Head of Events from 2017-2018. I also presented and produced my own radio show on Southampton University’s student radio station, Surge Radio, called Scones and Jams.
In 2018, I was nominated and subsequently shortlisted for Best Entertainment Piece at the Student Publication Association National Conference. I received nominations at my university’s annual Media Ball for Best Interview and Best Print Feature, as well as Best Behind-The-Scenes which I won. I also won ‘Most Shows This Year’ at Surge Radio’s AGM – not only did I do my show every week, but I frequently took free slots.
I am currently the Student Publication Association’s South East Regional officer.
I accept freelance work, so please feel free to get in touch!
