I’m Natalie. I’m a freelance film writer based in Birmingham, UK. I have over six years experience reviewing films for local newspapers both online and in print. My writing has been syndicated across JPI Media websites in the midlands including the Mansfield and Ashfield Chad, the Hucknall Dispatch and the Derbyshire Times.

I’m fanatical about film adaptation and the ways cinema and the novel interact. My writing has appeared in Little White Lies, Filmotomy and Gorilla Film Online. I have also provided events coverage of the London Film Festival, Birmingham’s Flatpack Film Festival, Derby Film Fest and Sheffield Doc Fest. You can find my portfolio here.

I’m currently writing a book about visual storytelling.
