ABOUT

 

Hello. Thanks for visiting my website pic

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.

I write about books, art and the built environment, among other things. If you like, you can browse a selected portfolio of my writing here.

Currently, I work part-time for The Guardian Bookshop, alongside freelance writing. Before that, I was a full-time copywriter and blog editor for The Guardian’s learning programme, where I wrote about personal development and creative writing.

Previous positions have included working with the British Council at the Venice Biennale, and the academic journal City, as coordinating editor.

I have a first-class MA in visual culture from Goldsmiths, and a BA in fine art and art history from Newcastle University. Over the years, I’ve spoken at universities including UCL and Goldsmiths, and art galleries such as The Royal Standard.

I’m open to commissions for journalism, creative writing and copywriting. 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.
