ABOUT

 

Hello. Thanks for visiting my website Emma Cummins - writer

I’m Emma Cummins, a freelance writer and editor based in London, originally from Northern Ireland.

I’ve written for a wide range of publications including the Guardian, the Quietus, Open Democracy, Aesthetica Magazine, Circa, Flash Art International and City journal, to name just a few.

Mostly, I write about culture, art, books and urban development, but I’m interested in lots of other things, too, such as economics and psychology.

In addition to writing reviews and essays, I work as a copywriter and editor. Currently, I’m freelancing for the Guardian Bookshop. Before that I was a blog editor and copywriter for the Guardian’s learning programme.

During my time at Guardian Masterclasses, I wrote quite a bit about personal development and creative writing. I also worked on a range of journalism courses with columnists including Gary Younge, Owen Jones and Aditya Chakrabortty, and creative writing workshops with award-winning authors such as Ross Raisin.

Before joining the Guardian, I was coordinating editor for the academic journal City, and have spoken at universities including UCL and Goldsmiths, as well as art galleries such as The Royal Standard in Liverpool.

I have a first-class MA in visual culture from Goldsmiths, and a BA in fine art and art history from Newcastle University. On top of my academic degrees, I’ve studied for several professional qualifications, resulting in certificates in copywriting, copy-editing and proofreading.

I’m currently accepting commissions for journalism, creative writing and copywriting, as well as working on my first novel. If you’d like to get in touch, please feel free to drop me an email at emma.cummins1@gmail.com, or follow me on Twitter and Facebook
