Anna Galbraith is a 26 year old freelance culture writer. Although currently based in London, her heart still stubbornly beats for the Lancashire-Cumbria border on which she was born, and continues to straddle uncomfortably in the tones of an indiscernible accent.
Anna's career in journalism began in 2018, when she became a staff writer for the luxury men's lifestyle magazine, Gentleman's Journal, and where she contributed features covering everything from grooming and fashion to fine dining and profile pieces. Her experience across this breadth of topics has swiftly taught Anna that she dislikes the idea of becoming a specialist writer, and relishes any opportunity to stick her teeth (often literally) into any weird and wonderful project that excites her.
However, if you were to press Anna for her specialism, it would be her borderline-creepy biographical knowledge of the life and work of Dame Emma Thompson — whom she has written (thus far unanswered) fan letters to since she was 15. Alongside freelance writing, Anna has experience as a proofreader, copyeditor, campaigner and journalist and she would love to hear from you, should you have any projects, pieces or features you would like to collaborate on.
She also sincerely apologises for the excruciating self-indulgence of writing this bio in the third person. Who does she think she is.
