Biography

Alice Johnson is a British writer, editor and multimedia journalist, based in Staffordshire. She relocated from Dubai after spending 8 years in the Middle East.

During her three-year tenure as a reporter for Gulf News, Alice travelled the Middle East reporting for print, online and video – both in front and behind the camera.

She started her career in London, UK, where she worked as a sub-editor, production editor and editor. Alice has handled the print production process of several substantial magazines and supplements – from feature writing to final print stages. She has a keen eye for detail and is known as one of the most thorough editors in the UAE. She also worked as Deputy UAE Editor at the aforementioned daily newspaper, planning news, pages and editing copy to extremely tight hourly deadlines. She is a trained videographer and video editor and has shot to tight deadlines, as well as under trying circumstances in Afghanistan.

Her major reports included conditions for women and children in Afghanistan; the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton; and the UK’s involvement in the Middle East arms trade in relation to the 2011 Arab uprisings. She also interviewed significant political players (David Cameron, William Hague and Liam Fox) and best-selling authors including Margaret Atwood, Martin Amis and Vikas Swarup (of Slumdog Millionaire fame) and has broken worldwide exclusives.

With more than 10 years experience in the industry, she has invaluable in-depth knowledge of editorial requirements.

Alice is available for copywriting, editing, feature / news / interview commissions, videography, video editing and print production work.
