My name is Eve Livingston, and I’m a freelance investigative journalist and reporter, primarily covering social affairs, industrial relations, politics and inequalities. I’ve twice won ‘Write to End Violence Against Women’ awards for my coverage of gender-based violence, was named in Young Women Scotland’s 30 under 30 list in 2018, and in 2019 I was longlisted for an Amnesty UK Media Award and shortlisted for an Orwell Prize. In 2021 and 2022, I was shortlisted for British Press Awards as part of a team at the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
I have bylines at The Guardian, The Observer, The Independent, iD, Dazed, Stylist, VICE, OpenDemocracy and lots of others, where I’ve written investigations, news, features, opinion and reviews. I’ve also worked for BBC Newsnight and appeared on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and ITV News among other broadcast appearances.
As well as working as a journalist, I’m interested in how we can make our industry and our work more inclusive and impactful. In my time at The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, I worked on community-led investigations and championed the practice of ‘participatory journalism’. I’ve since supported clients as diverse as film production companies and charities with participatory research and investigations.
I also have experience in social media, PR, copywriting and editing (you can find my portfolio here) so feel free to get in touch about any or all of the above, or if you’d like to talk to me about taking part in your TV/radio show/panel event. As a freelancer, I’ve worked on all these things and more for clients including UNICEF, Festivals Edinburgh, The Eden Project and The National Lottery.
On this website you’ll find my journalism portfolio, as well as updates on what I’m up to and a blog section for other bits and pieces . I hope you’ll find something you like here and consider getting in touch if you think there’s any way we can work together, or if you’d just like to say hello. You can contact me easily here.
