Brrr the cold days have finally arrived in the UK and Christmas is just around the corner. From a Sketches point of view this has been quite a month. A real early winter warmer. Where some of the following articles are going to take us is anyone's guess but hopefully you'll be along for the ride? And what fun it's been. Alongside the usual posts we focused on music this month, contributions to other publications (the exciting part) and a bit of food. So in no particular order here are Novembers best bits of the month. Just click on the bold words to go to the posts.
|The Forum in Rome - from the article "When in Rome"|
This month proved to be a turning point for us as a travel and lifestyle writer. I think I can call myself that? I had my first article published through European Life Magazine, called When in Rome. Its a project I'm very excited about and I hope that shines through in the written text? The second article will be out in December. Also I'm very happy to be contributing to Shopper Lottie Magazine, the first article being Museum hopping around London and again I am really excited by the prospects of this collaboration and where it's going to take us. Hopefully you have enjoyed the articles too?
Said the Maiden
The other major collaboration was with the upcoming folk trio Said the Maiden. In Part 1 we looked at their beginnings and why they chose to be a folk band; Said the Maiden interview Part 1. In Part 2 they bring us up-to-date with their current Pledge Music campaign and the release of their new EP and video Said the Maiden interview Part 2. Two more articles are to follow coming in December. It's an exciting time for them at present with the release of their new EP. If you would like to reserve your copy and be a part of their adventure? You can do so through their Pledge Music page www.pledgemusic.com/projects/saidthemaiden

So what a month its been. A turning point? Quite possibly? And the fun doesn't stop there. There are more articles to come in the magazines and there will be more posts on Said the Maiden regarding their touring and the new EP. Also in the run up to Christmas we're be doing a special series called The 12 Travel Days of Christmas - with some favourite posts from the year and some new ones.
