Meet Jen Marsden
Hello there! I'm a freelance sustainability journalist, writer, author, and editor based in the Scottish Highlands.
I’m hugely passionate about ethical lifestyle issues and I’ve written my way around the globe. I lived in India for eight years and continue to spend part of every year there. The topics I write about constantly shift – everything from travel and weddings to fashion, beauty, home interiors, and food.
If you are a PR professional with an interesting story idea, do feel free to email me.
I'm also the founder of Madhatter Creative Co., a communications consultancy with a focus on sustainability and strategic publishing projects.
This website shares more of my personal ramblings, from poetry to travel photography.
"At Sublime magazine, we have always been delighted with the 'must-read' quality and freshness of Jen's writing. She is evidently someone who is infinitely curious about the world and those who inhabit it, and inhabit it with purpose. Her writing has colour and immediacy, and it takes you by the hand and says, 'Come with me and share this trip I've just been on! You'll love it'. I have no hesitation in recommending her to you."
