I’m Jess and I’m a Mancunian living and working down South.
I’m a fashion and features writer with a BA in English Literature from The University of Sheffield, where I chose to focus on American literature and modernism.
I decided on a career path into the world of fashion and magazines at the age of 14. At 19, I interviewed chef James Martin, dragon Theo Paphitis, fashion designers Erdem and Jonathan Saunders, VOGUE editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman, McVite’s heir and MIC star Jamie Laing and noughties pop band The Feeling. I dabbled in PR and have been blogging since 2012.
I was voted into the position of editor-in-chief of The University of Sheffield women’s magazine at 20 and managed a team of six sub-editors and their writers under a new creative direction focused on the strapline ‘Student Life In Lights.’
I’m currently working as the marketing copywriter at fashion site BrandAlley in Central London after 5 months of strengthening my fashion knowledge as a product copywriter.
I am available to commission for freelance work, copywriting and blog collaborations.

Why the name?: Wolf in the City is a moniker I created in 2013 to replace the Dirty, Pretty Little Thing I’d started out with. It was around the time that Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street showed in cinemas and I like the sound of the word ‘wolf’ as well as the animal itself. As for the city bit…it’s where I’ve grown up, where I choose to go on holiday, where I went to uni and now where I work. It’s where I feel most at home.
