thehaughtyculturist.com publishes original, deep-dive content about cult, classic and popular culture.

The site has grown from a love of cinema and literature, and celebrates what makes these art forms so rich. I’m particularly interested in how stories are made and told. What makes them work, and what conventions do we accept, often without even knowing they’re there?

This is the place for you if you want to get under the skin of books, films and podcasts, or want to discover new favourites. New content is added roughly twice a month.

About me

I’m a freelance writer, with a career that spans publishing, journalism and copywriting. I’m published in the national press and all over the web, and have written and edited several key UK student, higher education and money guides.

If you like what you read, I’d love your support. Please give the site a share, or leave me a comment.

Thanks for reading!
