Writers for Whats on London

Alfie Venner Woodcock

I am an English Literature graduate from UEA with a background working in the food industry. I have worked for Neal's Yard Dairy as a cheesemonger, baked for Tracebridge Sourdough and worked as a pizza chef. I am interested in local food initiatives, small food businesses and restaurants with character. I am also interested in London's busy theatrical scene.
My hobbies include cricket, blogging, cooking, theatre and learning Dutch.

Carolyn D'Silva

Originally from sunny Brisbane, Carolyn moved to London in 2012 and has been happily enjoying what the city has to offer, not to mention the short flights to European destinations. Blogger on travel, movies, literature and social situations for WhichEverWay. Content intern at My Destination. Opinionmonger.

Daniella Nzekwe

I am an English graduate with a passion for literature. I enjoy reading novels and have a special interest in women's fiction. I have always enjoyed writing and wrote my autobiography aged ten called Golden memories. In 2010 I started my own Blog via Facebook called University Diaries. These were about my experiences as a student and covered topics such as relationships and binge drinking. Most recently I have started The Graduate, which covers various lifestyle issues facing today's graduate. I feel that I can help people through my writing.

Now for the informal stuff!

I enjoy going to clubs and socialising with friends on a regular basis. I love food and my Instagram is full of my favourite meals. I come from a family of cooks and there is always fresh cakes and home made stews at home. I eat out a lot (probably to much) because I am determined to find the best restaurants in London. I have a mild shopping addiction and determined to have over a hundred pair of shoes (I currently have 30.) I enjoy talking as much as I enjoy writing, so don't hesitate to send me a message.

Eleanor Baggley

I am an English Literature graduate with an insatiable (and occasionally obsessive) passion for books. If I'm not talking about books, it is likely I will be talking about theatre, art or music. Or food, I love food.

Francesca Hendry

23 year old media practice graduate with a love for fashion and alternative music.
I have my own online fashion blog that specialises in all things 90s, grunge and generally anything a bit trashy. Some sensible stuff is sometimes thrown in too for good measure.
