Jane Yettram

I am an experienced freelance writer and editor based in west London, with more than 30 years' journalistic experience writing about everything from football to photography, gardens to health, education to older people’s issues.


After graduating from university with a degree in English, I became assistant editor on a theatre magazine called Drama. I wrote articles, designed pages, researched pictures, sold ads…and even got a pair of first-night tickets to every opening night in London. Despite the lousy salary, it was the best possible first job in journalism.


I went on to work as a sub-editor (both staff and freelance) on many big-name women’s titles – from mass-market Woman and Take A Break, to upmarket Country Living and Elle.


Then, after the birth of the first of my two sons, I started writing for a broad range of publications and publishers – newspapers, glossy national magazines, websites, contract-publishing houses, charities... And, as well as continuing to write freelance features, I have been the editor of Townswoman magazine for over ten years, and previously edited magazines for Girlguiding and Mothercare.
