Hello. I’m Lydia Morrish, a multimedia journalist, features writer and fact-checker primarily covering culture, gender, politics, workers’ rights and inequalities. I’m based in London.
As well as writing for Dazed, Huck, Refinery29 and others, I am the UK correspondent for NewsMavens. There, I contribute news stories, fact-checking reports and reported features. I’ve also recently written for Broadly and Metro.co.uk.
Before going freelance, I was on the launch team of WikiTribune, the collaborative news platform created by Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales. I reported from Yarl’s Wood, covered the 72nd UN General Assembly in New York and reported on Universal Basic Income in Finland.
I have multi-disciplinary experience across the digital realm, including in video production and editing, social media, computer programming languages, data analysis and digital research.
My 2016 documentary Building Big explored the prevalence of men in the bodybuilding community who suffer from body dysmorphic disorder and in some cases become suicidal.
I’ve also given workshops and public talks on collaborative journalism at universities and Byline Festival. I have also contributed to BBC World Service, am an avid follower of global news, and am a member of the Second Source, a network of female journalists.
