Wyl

An NCTJ-trained journalist with 14 years’ experience, Wyl has written for and edited regional and national titles both in print and online.

Having led editorial teams for a range of national organisations, Wyl now specialises in running large-scale editorial projects for clients including universities, national charities and literacy organisations. He’s as at home developing editorial strategies and upskilling editorial teams, as he is interviewing changemakers or writing and editing features.

A firm believer in the power of the written word to change and inspire, when he’s not crafting copy for Stranger Collective, Wyl helps schools develop innovative approaches to teaching reading and writing. In the small spaces in between he is working on a creative writing master’s degree and his first novel.

And the desk, dominated by towers of books ready to come crashing down around your head, a paperweight reformed from the bomb that fell on this very spot in early 1941 […]
