Assistant editor | April 2012-present

QPRnet assistant editor

I have been the assistant editor of QPRnet, a Queens Park Rangers supporters’ website, since April. My responsibilities include producing match reports, previews, news and feature articles. This role also requires me to upload stories via the site’s content management system.

My writing for QPRnet primarily consists of match previews, which are produced prior to every game home and away. These generally range from 1,250 words to 1,750 words in length, and assess recent results, analyse the opposition in depth and offer a score prediction as well as team news.

To view my portfolio of articles, visit the following page on QPRnet. A full list of my pieces for QPRnet is available below, including the date each piece was published and page links.

A number of the following articles have also been published on the homepage of This Chemical World.
