Johanna Derry


I’m a freelance journalist and editor, copywriter and editorial consultant, storyteller and writer.

For newsstand titles you’ll find me mostly writing about food, travel and lifestyle. Have a look at some of my work here, which has been featured in the Evening Standard, 1843 magazine, the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, Stylist, Red Magazine, The Simple Things, Foodism, and Munchies.

I’ve worked with brands and organisations like Audi, Frette, Havana Club, BarChick, Maybourne Group, Le Kasha, the Canadian Consulate, the Norwegian Embassy, the GREAT Campaign, Go Ape, Marie Curie, and OC&C Strategy Consultants. Whether copywriting, tone of voice, editorial consultancy, event curation or ghost writing, I am able to apply my skills in narrative and communication to a variety of needs.

I also run the London branch of Tenx9, a true storytelling night which started in Belfast and which now has outposts all around the world.

I’m always available for commissions, interesting editorial projects, and creative storytelling.
