Sarah has written more than 100 city-focused features for MailOnline Travel alone. Articles in her portfolio range from 'The best places for brunch in Lisbon' to 'Chocolate, curiosities and coffee: a weekend away in Lviv, Ukraine'. Areas of expertise include Eastern Europe, Italy and Dubai.
On location reporting, ship reviews, port of call guides and listicles have all been part of Sarah's work for Cruise Critic. Before this, she covered cruise news, features and reviews as editor of the quarterly Cruise supplement in her role at the helm of Group Leisure & Travel magazine.
As the editor of Group Leisure & Travel magazine, Sarah was responsible for commissioning, writing and editing articles on cities and counties across the UK. She worked on pieces from Wakfield to Watford and from London to Leicester. Now living in Cheshire, she knows Manchester and Liverpool best of all.
Sarah is skilled at cherry-picking the highlights of larger destinations for specific readerships. For examples see the Panama, Luxembourg and Switzerland pieces on the portfolio pages.
In her two years doing shifts on the MailOnline Travel desk Sarah has written about everything from the Canary Island folk sport 'Shepherd's Leap' to Spain's most beautiful villages. Prior to The Mail, Sarah edited or wrote travel news daily in her role as editor of Group Leisure & Travel.
For the past four years, Sarah has been the sole writer of Visit Liverpool's 50-page Travel Trade guide, featuring details of hotels, restaurants, museums, galleries, shops and attractions in the region as well as itinerary ideas.
I'd been working as a features writer at The Lincolnshire Echo for 18 months when I was given the opportunity to work on my first travel article. It took me to Gambia. A few months later another assignment took me to Dubai. Then I was asked to write about the Lincoln Christmas markets for The Observer. Before I knew it, I was hooked. Travel writing is my catnip. Not just because of the places it takes you, but because of the world of words it opens up. Words to describe scents, sounds, sensory experiences. New words for foods and drinks. Words for colours and architecture and cultural quirks. Since those early days in Lincoln, I have worked as an editorial executive at TUI, writing for inflight magazines, brochures and websites, and I have been the editor of the national travel magazine Group Leisure & Travel. Today, I am a freelancer and I write regularly for some of the biggest travel publications and brands in the UK and even the world. I carry my passport and a pen in my handbag at all times and I'm as in my element writing about Hull as I am Hawaii.
