About Holly

I am a freelance journalist specialising in the arts. My work includes writing features, interviews and travel pieces for the Evening Standard, the Guardian, the Times Literary Supplement, the New Statesman, the BBC, and Refinery29, and reviewing theatre for Time Out, What’s on Stage, the Independent, Fest and Exeunt. I have also been commissioned to write programme notes for the Royal & Derngate Theatre.

I have experience as an editor, laying up pages and proofing copy, and have worked shifts at Stylist and The Debrief. I’ve appeared on Sky News and Swipe (Sky’s technology magazine show) as a theatre specialist.

Until 2016 I worked at the Independent on Sunday, where I was lead staff writer for the Arts & Books section. I regularly produced cover features for the New Review magazine supplement, as well as writing for the Travel pages. 

In 2015, I was delighted to receive a Special Commendation in the Allen Wright Award for arts journalism at the Edinburgh festivals; I was also shortlisted in 2014.

I’m available to write interviews, criticism, features, opinion pieces, travel pieces and programme notes.
