Applications forms, personal statements and embarassing emails

This section is a warts and all display of application forms I’ve filled in for jobs or work experience, emails I’ve sent that have been ignored, emails I’ve sent that have been responded too, articles that I now cringe at and personal statements that I’ve written.

The aim is to either be a bit of a help to people who have trouble writing these kind of things, or, to provide some reassurance that everyone gets many, many no’s before they get a yes.

By publishing my first articles (with annotations) I want to show that learning to write as a journalist is a skill. It’s not easy and often takes years of practice, but if you do practice you will get better and if you try hard enough – you will get published.

It should be fairly entertaining too (the emails to heat magazine are shameless).
