Susannah Straughan, Notreallyworking

Welcome to Notreallyworking – a blog that celebrates movies, 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.

I also volunteer as a blogger for the Twentieth Century Society, where I do a regular round-up of exhibitions.

When I’m not blogging I take on freelance writing, copy-editing and proofreading assignments. To discuss a project or find out more about my work, please click here.

Thanks for visiting my site!
