My name is Jenna Sloan. I’m a freelance journalist, and I specialise in working with charities, non-profits and social enterprises to tell their case study stories.
I spent ten years on Fleet Street as a staff feature writer for The Daily Mirror then The Sun, sourcing and writing hundreds of case studies, before deciding to go freelance in 2015.
As a freelance journalist I’ve worked with charities and social enterprises to turn case study stories into features and interviews for national newspapers, magazines and digital brands.
I’ve worked on case study stories for national campaigns and digital launches, and I’ve consulted on storytelling strategy for public sector organisations including the NHS.
You can see my work in The Sun, Daily Mirror, Daily Mail, Fabulous Magazine, Guardian Weekend, Sunday Times, Take a Break, Prima Magazine, Best, Smiley Movement and more. My charity clients have included include Muscular Dystrophy UK, Derian House Children’s Hospice and Mermaids.
I’m also a lecturer in the journalism department at Manchester Metropolitan University where I create and lead courses on storytelling, feature writing and magazine journalism. And I support and mentor journalism students to pitch ideas and write articles for newspapers, magazines and digital platforms.
I live in Bolton, Greater Manchester. When I’m not working you’ll find me walking through woods with a Labradoodle and my two daughters, trying to keep up with my outdoor circuits class and buying lots of independent magazines.
