Journalism


My name is James Riding and I'm a journalist. I read English at Magdalen College, Oxford and I have an MA in Newspaper Journalism from City, University of London. 
 
I have contributed essays, interviews and book reviews to The TimesProspect, Literary Review, The London Magazine and more.

I am currently policy reporter for the real estate publication React News. You can view all my stories here. My other news bylines include the Hackney Gazette, Hampstead & Highgate Express and Brent & Kilburn Times.

Below is a selection of my writing.
