Paul Drury-Bradey

I'm a journalist based in Yorkshire. I studied journalism at Sheffield University and started my career in local newspapers, gaining NCTJ qualifications in Media Law, Public Affairs and 100wpm Teeline shorthand.

After a few years in local newspapers I moved to Nottingham and spent a couple of years as an in-house journalist at STENCIL - writing corporate copy and working on sports & culture.

I then spent twelve-years in the comms sector before family reasons brought me back up north at the end of 2018. Since then, I've produced a variety of stories. I made a twelve-part podcast series for Durham Unversity, I've done writing for some of the arts sector's biggest trade titles and I've had several commissions for the Reader's Digest. I'm particularly proud of a nature-based story on Yorkshire's puffins I made for a global nature project for a client in the USA.

Alongside this writing work I run a small newswire, producing story tip-offs and content for clients such as News International. 

I live in Scarborough but happy to work on stories across the north. I'm regularly in Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield and Newcastle with work.
