Life at The Writer

We make shift happen

We’re a team of 30-odd people working together to find the words that shift the world. That’s our purpose. And while we’re a motley crew, it’s one goal we all have in common, whether we’re a few feet or a whole ocean apart.

The rest of the time, you might find us swapping book recs (okay, Netflix recs), helping out at literacy charities and sending a few too many gifs in our emails.

The Writer team

The best way to get to know someone? Their favourite word. And if you’ve ever worked with us, you’ve probably shared yours. If you haven’t – start thinking. Chances are, we’ll ask.
