WRITING

Daisy Allsup is the editor of weekly newsletter A Little Bird, the Insider's Guide to London. 'Vogue meets Radio 4, online' – the Guardian. 

Alongside this Daisy works on a freelance basis for the Antibad Journal, an online fashion site dedicated to sustainability. Her writing here includes interviews, and a Sustainable City Series that focusses on conscious travel without compromise.

Daisy continues to contribute to London-based magazine angels & urchins, writing travel features and editing monthly news pages. She founded, edits and writes for The Iris Letter, an arts newsletter that feels like getting a postcard from a friend straight into your inbox. Setting monthly themes, Daisy curates beautiful content from a number of contributors, and shines the spotlight on a different inspiring woman each month in her Iris Interview.

Daisy is available for lifestyle commissions, she regularly writes about life in Amsterdam, as well as pieces on art and culture, travel, friendship, feminism, books, food and her favourite of all, anything green or botanical from flowers and plants to gardens, canals, parks and natural spaces. 

Well-observed and well-researched, Daisy really captures the essence of a place in her writing. She has a warm and direct voice that is all her own. Whether writing features or fact boxes, researching or copy editing, Daisy is a total delight to work with.
