Rachael Sigee - freelance feature and lifestyle journalist

I am a freelance journalist living and working in east London. I am a regular contributor to The Pool (mostly covering pop culture, feminism, arts and entertainment and lifestyle) and I write celebrity interviews for Waitrose Weekend. I have also written for Broadly, Red Bulletin, The i Paper and Refinery29, and do occasional editing and web production shifts.

I have also worked on a major city guide project for SUITCASE Media and chaired panel discussions where I continue to struggle to use microphones correctly.

Before that, I worked at the Evening Standard for five years where I started as News Assistant and was regularly sent to cover stories that involved me posing for photographs in, on or next to over-sized objects like giant martini glasses. I then moved on to be a Feature Writer where I sometimes still posed for awkward pictures to accompany stories. I predominantly wrote interviews, lifestyle trend pieces and arts features.
