Crystal Wilde

I’m an experienced British journalist and editor with 11+ years experience reporting from Asia. I'm currently freelancing from Shanghai for a variety of international clients, including CNN, AP, the Telegraph, The Times of London, New York Magazine, Reader’s Digest, Women’s Wear Daily and several major travel magazines. I also work part time for a cross-China website, running their entire content and social media strategy. 

Before I moved to Mainland China I was Managing Editor of Coconuts Hong Kong news and lifestyle website [782,000 pageviews/month], and then Community Manager for the entire Coconuts Media Group [3.2 million pageviews/month]. Under my watch, Coconuts Hong Kong spearheaded coverage of the 2014 Occupy protests and won a SOPA award. The latter role for Coconuts Media involved running sponsored content, media partnerships, SEO projects, social media and communications for 10 popular news and lifestyle websites across Asia. 

I am a meticulous writer and editor of news, features, blogs, lifestyle and branded content, and I pride myself on my ability to spot a great story tell it in an entertaining and engaging way, whoever the audience.
