Alumna Rachel visits Writers’ Club

March 18, 2024

Last Friday, Writers’ Club welcomed Withington alumna Rachel Lloyd, Deputy Culture Editor at The Economist. Rachel spoke about her journey into journalism and shared her insights into life as a journalist. The group touched on how the industry has evolved and is evolving, particularly in respect to AI and multimedia journalism.

Working through three of Rachel’s published articles, Rachel outlined the process of writing and publishing. Emphasising how inspiration can come from anywhere and the importance of engaging with popular culture discourse, she referenced her pieces on ‘cuteness’, and the Barbie and Oppenheimer films of last summer.

Thank you, Rachel, for your time and expertise.
