An interview with Terri White Freelancing for Journalists

In the final episode of the series we chat to Terri White the former editor of Empire magazine and Time Out New York, about her first book, Coming Undone. The book is a brutally honest and moving memoir about her breakdown in New York and how her early life experiences shaped where she is today, both professionally and personally.  Terri is currently a freelance journalist writing for a range of publications and has a column in the Sunday Times. We pick her brains about choosing to go freelance for a better work/ life balance and how journalism today is affected by a lack of class diversity.  The Author Terri White  Twitter: https://twitter.com/Terri_White (@Terri_White) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/terrilwhite (@terrilwhite) Newsletter: White Noise https://terriwhite.substack.com/ (https://terriwhite.substack.com/) Book Coming Undone https://canongate.co.uk/books/2716-c Publisher Cannongate https://canongate.co.uk/ (https://canongate.co.uk/) Journalism  Grazia article about surviving on benefits https://graziadaily.co.uk/life/real-life/we-must-continue-to-protect-children-in-need/ (https://graziadaily.co.uk/life/real-life/we-must-continue-to-protect-children-in-need/) Big Issue  https://www.bigissue.com/news/activism/terri-white-no-child-should-know-the-emptiness-and-ache-of-hunger/ (https://www.bigissue.com/news/activism/terri-white-no-child-should-know-the-emptiness-and-ache-of-hunger/) Sunday Times column  https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/whos-that-banging-away-at-the-typewriter-look-out-heres-terri-zsks0jtdd (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/whos-that-banging-away-at-the-typewriter-look-out-heres-terri-zsks0jtdd) The New Statesman https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/media/2022/06/terri-white-media-response-strikes-working-class-journalists (https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/media/2022/06/terri-white-media-response-strikes-working-class-journalists) Empire podcast  https://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/empire-podcast-479-yahya-abdul-mateen-ii-jude-law-farewell-terri-white/ (https://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/empire-podcast-479-yahya-abdul-mateen-ii-jude-law-farewell-terri-white/) Help to get into journalism London Film Festival critics mentorship  https://www2.bfi.org.uk/lff/education/critics-mentorship-programme (https://www2.bfi.org.uk/lff/education/critics-mentorship-programme) The Guardian Scott Trust Bursary https://theguardianfoundation.org/programmes/scott-trust-bursary (https://theguardianfoundation.org/programmes/scott-trust-bursary) Arts emergency https://www.arts-emergency.org/  (https://www.arts-emergency.org/ ) Freelancing for Journalists work experience  https://freelancingforjournalists.com/journalism-work-experience-initiative/ (https://freelancingforjournalists.com/journalism-work-experience-initiative/)
