Featured journalist: Mary Griffin
Today's featured journalist is Mary Griffin, Food and Drink Writer for the Birmingham Mail and the Birmingham Post. Aside from being a Birmingham-based journalist who focuses on (of course) food and drink, Griffin also writes about international development and good yarns (including environment, politics, travel, city guides, and real-life features). She's won some awards for it, too: a Regional Press Award for reporting on race, awarded for a feature about caste discrimination in the UK; a Garden Media Award for a series of features about gardening to improve mental health, organics and grassroots farming schemes; and several others, which you can peruse here. Also be sure to go through her portfolio, which showcases some of this award-winning work.
