Jane Cornwell

Journalist, writer, wanderer.

Informed, engaging writing and copywriting on music, arts, culture and travel by established journalist. Feature interviews a speciality. Books, broadcasting, lecturing, hosting… If you want the best, look no further.

Australian-born, London-based, I am the jazz critic, and a world music critic, for the London Evening Standard and write for major newspapers and online platforms in the UK and Australia. I’m also a compere at WOMAD, a contributing editor of Songlines magazine, a reporter for the likes of Sophisticated Traveller and a writer of books, press releases and programme notes. I have written tourist board brochures and snappy copy for a range of clients including luxury brands. Sometimes I give lectures, and go on BBC Radio. Before all this I did a postgraduate degree in anthropology. I’ve just completed a Masters degree in Global Creative and Cultural Industries (Distinction) at SOAS, University of London.
