It has been an ambition of mine to get something published in EDGE magazine for a long time now, and this month it finally happened. Check out issue 334 to see a two-page feature I wrote on DigitalCity, an initiative in Middlesbrough that is helping indie studios and other businesses to get off the ground.
It was great to write something really positive about Northeast England – the region has been hit hard by the decline of heavy industry over the past few decades, so seeing the growth of this new digital sector is inspiring. I moved to the Northeast a few years back, and it was wonderful to have the chance to big up my new home.
And also great to see my writing in EDGE – I remember buying the very first issue of this magazine back in the early 1990s, and I have been following it on and off ever since. Hopefully, this will be the first of many EDGE articles to come… just as long as I can think of interesting ideas to pitch to them, that is.
