My name is Ceri Saunders and I am a south Shropshire-based sub-editor, writer, page designer and photographer with more than eight years’ editorial experience.
In my current role at the Press Association, though primarily news-focused, I design and work across a number of lifestyle and feature pages for national and local titles including the London Evening Standard, the Daily and Sunday Telegraph, Daily Express and The Voice.
Away from PA, I undertake freelance work, whether that be photography, PR and copywriting or design. I also contribute to a number of Yorkshire-based online magazines, including On: Yorkshire Magazine and York Mix.
I am a creative, determined and dedicated artist with a real passion for everything editorial, graduating from Staffordshire University with a First Class Honours degree in Photojournalism in June 2013, before going on to train as a sub-editor and page designer at Wolverhampton’s Express & Star newspaper one month later.
In my time at the Express & Star I would write lengthy food, TV, travel and music reviews, as well as subbing copy and pages to strict deadlines. After 18 months at the Express & Star, in January 2015, I resigned to pursue my dream of travelling the world, and did so for four months.
Following a period of freelance and paid work in marketing and hospitality upon my return, I worked as a marketing assistant for the UK’s leading food hall and foodie destination, Ludlow Food Centre. In October 2016, I made the move to York to join the Press Association, who I continue to work for from my home in Ludlow.
Away from the world work, I am a keen runner, crocheter and gig-goer and am learning Spanish. I’m hoping to use the language on a solo trip to South America in September/October 2019.
