All change

Lovely Laura Hunter is taking a step back from editing 26’s newsletter, to focus on other projects. And I’m hoping I can do her proud as I take the reins. Here’s a quick update and a hello from me.

In case you’re wondering who I am…

Hi, I’m Sophie, and this is my first 26 newsletter in the editor’s chair.

A bit about me

By day, I work in-house at the NSPCC as their Senior Copywriter – being a good cop for the brand police, and generally working on all things wordy and creative. That’s actually where I met Laura, many moons ago (well, about five years). She showed me the ropes and even introduced me to 26.

I’ve been helping Laura out as an associate editor, along with Elena Bowes for the last couple of years. And I’ve taken part in several of 26’s projects too – even turning my hand to designing the odd book, and summoning some skills from my Graphic Design degree.

If you’ve got any thoughts on what you’d like to see in the newsletter, drop me an email ( In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this month’s instalment, and I’m sure you’ll join me in thanking Laura for all her hard work and creativity as editor. I’m hoping to tempt her back to write the odd article in the future, so don’t worry – she’s not going far.
