Jennifer SavinRead Interview
Jennifer Savin is an award-winning journalist, having been named as one of the PPA New Talent 30 Under 30 and on the MHP’s 30 To Watch List. She also won Best Print Feature Idea at the BSME Awards 2018.
She has worked at Cosmopolitan, the UK’s number one glossy magazine, since 2015, progressing from the role of intern to her current position of esteemed Features Writer. Her work has additionally been published by Women’s Health, The Times and The Independent, and she has appeared on panels across the country discussing how to kickstart a career in the media.
Alongside first-person pieces, Jennifer has a particular passion for investigative journalism – something that has found her in all manner of unusual situations, from sharing a tiny bedroom with a stranger for 10 days whilst reporting on the housing crisis, to going undercover to expose the ‘landlords’ offering vulnerable women free rent in exchange for sex. Her lighter-hearted pieces include spending two months dating only men named Daniel (for deeply scientific purposes, of course) and an exploration of the life lessons she learnt whilst living with drag queens.
Jennifer’s debut novel, The Wrong Move, a twisty, domestic thriller set in a millennial flatshare, was published by Ebury in April 2020. Her second book, a coming-of-age story, is currently in the works.
