My first editing job

After nicking my granparents’ and parents’newspapers and magazines while growing up, and sneakily listening to the radio under the covers at night, I was pretty excited to get my first editing role in primary school.

Recently I found this old Crowan Gazette at my parents’ house, which I helped to make while at Crowan School. It seems I was a co-editor. Also on the team was Tamsyn Jones, now one of my best friends. We must have been 10 or 11 at the time.

It says it was going to come out monthly but I don’t think we ever made another one! I can’t remember why. I love all the stuff like Leedstown Show Results, and Class 4’s trip to Penzance. Makes me a bit homesick for Cornwall.
