Spotlight on…freelance homes writer, editor and stylist Jennifer Morgan
Former interiors magazine editor, Jennifer Morgan, tells Homestyle PR about her new freelance life and why she has two of the best jobs in the world…
You recently swapped life at Time Inc for freelancing after 16 years of working on some of the UK’s leading home interest titles, what made you take the leap?
I love homes and I’m so thrilled to do something I love everyday. I have never not wanted to go to work, which I know makes me incredibly lucky. I’d been at Time Inc for 11 years, having joined as interiors editor on Ideal Home, before making deputy working under the inspirational Isobel McKenzie-Price.
I was then offered the chance to launch Style at Home magazine to meet a gap in the homes market for a magazine that offered affordable style. Copy sales were big, topping at over the 100,000-figure and I loved it, but after I took a year out to have my daughter, I felt ready for a new challenge. This saw me setting up The Craft Network (another of my passions) and launching four magazines and a pile of craft kitazines, still for Time Inc. But I missed homes too much, and when the chance came to take redundancy, I took it, so I could freelance and hopefully spend more time being a mum!
