Amy Lewis is a freelance journalist from Dublin, Ireland with over six years of experience in writing for various online and print publications. Most recently, Amy was employed as a journalist with INM Regionals, writing for local newspapers including the Wexford People, Gorey Guardian, Enniscorthy Guardian and Wicklow People. She left this post in December 2016 in order to pursue a passion for travel and concentrate on her freelance work.
As a freelance writer, Amy has had work published in publications including the Irish Times, Irish Examiner, Irish Daily Mail and Irish Tatler Magazine. She has also had fictional stories printed in publications such as Ireland’s Own and Sacred Heart Magazine. She picked up a Drugs.ie National Media Award in 2012 for her article on underage drinking. In earlier years, Amy also dabbled in advertorial writing, working for a trade magazine called Irish Property Guides.
Amy gained her journalistic legs from Dublin Institute of Technology, where she received a first class honours degree in Journalism with French. Her final year dissertation explored the subject of science writing and questioned whether having an employed science specialist affects the quality of scientific information published by a media outlet. On graduating, she received the Sunday World Cup award for achieving the highest grade in her peer group. During her studies, Amy was required to go on Erasmus and was one of two selected to undertake a semester in l’Institut Pratique du Journalisme in Paris where she produced journalistic content entirely through French.
Samples of Amy’s writing can be found in the portfolio section of the site. As she has produced an extremely large volume of content, particularly during her most recent post with INM Regionals, she has selected a broad range of some of her best work for this site.
