Tatler Schools Social Editor

When Tatler offered a Woldingham Sixth Former with an interest in journalism the opportunity to become a Schools Social Editor, it was too good to refuse. The Schools Social Editor will put forward features and photos about school events that they believe are worth inclusion in the bystander pages of Tatler.com. Keen writer Becky Connolly was selected for this role, which began in half term with an induction day at Tatler. Becky tells us more…

Last Wednesday I was lucky enough to be invited to visit Vogue House - or "Tatler Headquarters" as I called it - in order to kick-start the journey of being Woldingham’s Schools Social Editor for the magazine.

The offices did not fail to impress. The magazine's luxury tone was certainly captured in the opulent surroundings, ornate furnishings and delicious nibbles. I and fellow students from several other independent schools were enlightened by Tatler's seemingly omniscient and friendly staff, who gave us an insight into the life of Tatler and of a journalist. If this wasn't exciting enough, we were also given the opportunity to explore the offices of Tatler and Condé Nast’s other magazines, including Vogue. It was certainly a step out of the protective slopes of the Marden Valley, however one that has provided a new and exciting opportunity that - who knows? - may be the beginning of a career I choose to pursue someday.
