I’m Beth Kirkbride, a 24-year-old living in Sheffield. I graduated in 2018 with a degree in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford, and I’m also an NCTJ-accredited journalist, having obtained my gold-standard diploma with News Associates part-time in 2019.
I edit the Music section of my website, The Indiependent, which I founded in 2014 as a platform for aspiring journalists. I write articles for a range of outlets, with bylines in Cosmopolitan, Metro, The Telegraph, OneZero and more.
I also run a newsletter called ‘The Peak District’ which is all about the highs and lows of trying to establish a career in the media industry – it features tonnes of great content I’ve read, as well as media jobs/ops not in London. You can subscribe here.
I’m also currently teaching myself to code using Codecademy, and I also enjoy cooking (which you can see from my Instagram).
