Welcome to Notreallyworking – a blog that celebrates movies, TV, sport, subtitles and subversive humour.
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.
One blog is never enough, so in 2013 I started The Taft Hotel, a site inspired by my growing interest in all things vintage. If you like pictures from children’s books of the 1960s, please take a look.
When I’m not blogging I take on freelance ghostwriting, blogging and copy-editing assignments. To discuss a project or find out more about my work, please click here.
Thanks for visiting my site!

Hi. Sorry that’s not possible on WordPress.com at the moment. As and when I switch to another platform it might be possible . . .

I’m photo editor at brazilian magazine seLecT. We are doing an issue about olimpics games and the internet. I found a Federe’s photo here and I’d like to use in the magazine. It is possible? Of course I’ll put photo credits for the photographer. Need urgently this information.
thanks for your attention. Best, Ana

Hi Ana. The picture of Federer was from Wikimedia Commons and this is the link (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:R_federer.jpg) with information about the photographer, when it was taken and how it can be reused. Good luck with everything!

Nick from http://www.cinekatz.com here. Doing some scout work for the LAMB. We’re wanting to make an email newsletter for community features as well as a list we’re making similar to Sight & Sound’s best movies of all time list. Just need an email! Email me at npowe131 at gmail.com

Would love to talk to you about an account I’ve written about care for the elderly, NHS negligence and so on in the care of my mother. It may come to proofreading and so on but I’m not even sure if what I’ve written is publishable… I can’t find anything quite like it in the bookshops but Jane Raca’s book (reviewed in the Guardian today) struck me as the same sort of thing – which is how I found your blog. I wonder if you’d be willing to have a look at my intro/ synopsis?

Thanks for getting in touch. I’ll email you about this.
