A FemAle View started life as a website by freelance journalist and beer sommelier Sophie Atherton. It began around nine years ago when she left a staff job to go freelance and decided to specialise in beer writing.
Since around 2013 there have been occasional guest contributors to the site. There are plans for more regular contributions, with Sophie acting as editor as well as lead writer. More about this in due course, but our chief contributor is Rachel Woolgar, with occasional posts from Jerry Bartlett (think ‘A Male View’, a bit like Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4).
You can also expect to see the theme of the site widen beyond beer, to include other drinks and food – as well as food & drink issues such as sustainability and the environment.
Thinking of pitching or offering ‘content’? We are NOT currently accepting pitches from other writers, nor do we carry sponsored posts or supplied content, but we will let you know if that changes.
