New editor for Gifts Today
Sarah Welsh takes the helm at Lema Publishing title
Sarah started her career as a journalist on a daily regional newspaper in South Wales covering everything from sensitive real life features to court cases.
She then worked on various national women’s magazine titles, including Bella, Best and Woman, before launching a successful freelance career that saw her specialise in advertorials and travel copywriting.
She has also worked in public relations for companies including ITV.
Sarah is excited about her next career chapter, editing Gifts Today!
Sarah says: "I’ve been a journalist for more than 15 years penning everything from hard hitting news features to humorous first-person pieces for a broad range of national newspapers, magazines and websites. As well as a firm background in lifestyle writing I bring experience in commercial features and copywriting and PR to the Gifts Today team.
"As a commissioning editor I’ve been on the receiving end of both fantastic and terrible pitches for over a decade, so I pride myself on knowing exactly how to tell the story behind both gift products and the people who design, create and market them."
Penny Franks, the present editor, is leaving the title to work exclusively on Lema Publishing's sister title Nursery Today, which this year has gone monthly.
