Lucy Purdy

Lucy Purdy is a freelance journalist who specialises in writing news and lifestyle features and who contributes regularly to Sublime.

Lucy spent her childhood summers on a rugged, deserted island in Scotland, has canoed through the Swedish wilderness and cycled the craggy coast of Ireland.

She has interviewed Michelin-starred chefs, government ministers, the richest woman in the UK and four times world champion ironman triathlete Chrissie Wellington as well as plenty of people on the street.

She is a keen cook, sustainability and grow-your-own enthusiast and master composter who believes the job of a journalist is the best there is.
