PROJECTS

CREATIVE NONFICTION

I'm currently working on my first book — a memoir-meets-manifesto on coercive control, set between the UK and the US and told through the lens of my own experience.

I am actively seeking an agent. For more information email abigail@abigailedge.com.

SOCIETY OF FREELANCE JOURNALISTS

In March 2020 I co-founded The Society of Freelance Journalists (SFJ), a Slack community initially launched to support freelancers through the Coronavirus pandemic.

A collaboration project with Laura Oliver, John Crowley and Caroline Harrap, the community now has more than 1,300 members across 50 different countries.

TEACHING

I am a visiting journalism lecturer at City, University of London – regarded as one of the best universities in the UK for the study of journalism – where I completed my own postgraduate diploma in journalism in 2009.

I have guest lectured at many other universities in the UK and the US. My specialisms are digital and social media journalism, feature writing, magazines, and entrepreneurial journalism.

SPEAKING AND EVENT HOSTING

I have presented at international conferences including the Global Editors Summit in Athens and newsrewired in London.

Since the pandemic, I have mc-ed and hosted virtual events including the British Council’s Future News Worldwide and the European Journalism Centre’s Freelance Journalism Assembly.
