AboutI have been a writer and editor in various capacities over the years, including for a politics rag and a youth work journal in Edinburgh, as a managing editor for two magazines in Beirut, Lebanon, and working as an outreach journalist for the youth media charity Headliners. I was the Media & Campaigns manager for a family support charity in London for two years, and wrote regular reviews for Remotegoat for three years. I´m currently based in La Paz, Bolivia and working with Bolivian Express magazine. I enjoy writing across a range of interests - culture, social comment, politics, travel and health issues, and I am a very efficient editor. I am always looking for freelance opportunities so please get in touch on madsryle@gmail.com if you would like to know more. You can also check my blog at maddingtonbear.wordpress.com to see what I´ve been wondering about recently.
