Susannah Straughan, Notreallyworking

Welcome to Notreallyworking – a blog that celebrates movies, sport, subtitles and subversive humour. I make no apologies for expressing strong opinions here, but I do try to keep it clean in case my young nephews happen to be reading . . .

I set up this site in 2010 as my online portfolio, after leaving my job as a sub-editor on the Films section of Radio Times magazine. Before that, I worked in book and magazine publishing from the mid-80s onwards. I’m old enough to remember when desktop publishing (DTP) was cutting-edge technology in the industry!

When I’m not blogging I take on freelance copy-editing and proofreading assignments. I also volunteer as a blogger for the Twentieth Century Society.

I’m currently writing entries for a new website about Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.

If you’d like to hire me as a blogger or for editorial work, please leave a message for me below, tweet me @susannah63, or check me out at LinkedIn.

Thanks for reading!
