Writing & Editing

Time Out London Riots Simone Baird

My background is in journalism, particularly in magazines. After leaving Australia for the UK I started my career in Edinburgh at The List magazine before writing for Jockey Slut, Sleazenation, The Face, the Sunday Times Style magazine, NME, Muzik and several Australian broadsheets.

At Time Out I was a clubbing writer before launching a brand new section (something that rarely happens) covering the emerging cabaret and burlesque scene. I went on to be a features writer (here’s a piece on the art of taxidermy (pdf)), and then features editor – commissioning the key stories and cover features for the magazine, including during the London riots of 2011.

I write across a broad range of subjects: travelling in Darwin (pdf),police attitudes to music scenes, female roller derby, Mexican wrestling in east London, and Edwardian etiquette.

  1. Hi admin, i found this post on 12 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by hi bounce rate.

    This is very important ranking factor. One of the
    biggest reason for high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the
    back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the search results your posts and pages will end
    up, so having reasonably low bounce rate is important for increasing your
    rankings naturally. There is very handy wp plugin which can help you.
    Just search in google for:
