How journalists earn has diversified. It now includes making money from your blog, YouTube channel or social media channels. Journalist and author Alexandra Campbell now estimates around 70% of her writing income is earned from her Middlesized Garden blog and YouTube channel. In this workshop, she’ll explain what the new media income streams are and how to get started.

Alexandra Campbell worked for She, Harpers Bazaar and Good Housekeeping, and then freelanced for The Times Saturday Magazine, Ideal Home and more. She’s the author of 10 novels, published by Penguin and Little Brown and 9 non-fiction books. She started her UK Top 10 gardening blog, The Middlesized Garden in 2014 and the Middlesized Garden YouTube channel in 2017. She says that earning a living in new media isn’t just for the young, gorgeous and tech-savvy – it has potential for everyone, regardless of age, background or ability.
