My name is Eve Livingston, and I’m a UK-based freelance journalist and writer primarily covering social affairs, 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. Some nice things people have said about me are:
“a dream to commission” – editor Zoe Beaty, formerly of The Pool
“a brilliant and thoughtful interviewer” – journalist and author Dolly Alderton
I have bylines at The Guardian, The Independent, The Pool, VICE and lots of others, and I’ve produced features, analysis, comment and interviews on everything from corporate feminism and voter disenfranchisement to University Challenge. I’ve got a background in broadcast having spent most of my degree in a student radio studio and some time working across various different TV/Radio shows and channels at the BBC.
Following the success of an article I wrote about Universal Basic Income, I’ve been writing a regular ‘Manifesto’ column since early 2018 for online outlet Conter in which I look at different policy ideas for the left.
I also have experience in social media, 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.
On this website you’ll find my published writing and clips of broadcast media, as well as 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.
