Emma is Writing is a personal & lifestyle blog consisting of opinion pieces, book and theatre reviews, places to eat, travel diaries and general everyday life.

I am passionate about the North of England, and most my writing is based around my love for the vibrant, eclectic, and ever-changing city of Manchester.

Ubud, BaliAn avid traveller, I like to chat about current and future trips, write guides and offer tips on how to solo travel.

I am also a mental health advocate and regularly write about tips for mental wellbeing including nutrition, getting rid of stigma, and resources.

If you’d like to get in touch to invite me to an event, or you think we could work together, or if there’s an opportunity that you think my readers will enjoy, get in touch with me at emmayatesbadley@gmail.com.

As a creative writer with experience in copy editing, social media and a keen passion for travel, I’d love to talk about potential commissions, press trips and reviews.

Other Stuff

I work as the Deputy Editor for Northern Soul, a popular webzine written in the North of England by Northern writers which covers culture, the wider arts and enterprise. I have a regular blog on the site called It’s Not Grim up North, where I write anything from theatre and food reviews, to interviews with people from the arts, to opinion pieces about current events.
