I’ve been a journalist for 13 years and freelance for seven of them. As a journalist I’ve worked for the BBC as a producer and researcher, a newsreader for various Heart radio stations, presented a breakfast radio show and appeared as a guest on multiple BBC stations including Woman’s Hour. I’ve also written for many magazine and website titles, mainly on lifestyle topics with a strong focus on interiors.

For the past four years I’ve been building my interiors writing portfolio, launching the (currently under maintenance) interiors website Roost, writing for various glossy interiors magazines including regular features for Essential Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom magazine (you can see the EKBB website here), plus interiors features for OK! Mum & Baby magazine and, formerly, the interiors pages for Very magazine.

As well as interiors and lifestyle, I also write about parenting (naturally). In this capacity I write regular features for the BabyCentre blog, have written for Mother & Baby magazine, The Green Parent magazine and Gurgle.

Below is a very stripped back selection of my portfolio hightlights. To see more please email me at mollyjforbes@gmail.com. I’m always open to new commissions so please do get in touch if you’re looking for a new writer!
