Alice Snape

I am a freelance editor, writer and curator, based in London, UK.

I am currently enjoying editing Oh Comely, a curious, honest and playful independent magazine for women. I manage an entirely freelance, part-time team. The bimonthly title covers art, fashion, film, music, design, original first person stories and lots of weird, quirky and thought-provoking creative writing. It's an absolute joy to work on and combines all my passions and interests. 

I am publisher and former editor-in-chief of Things&Inkan independent tattoo magazine focusing on elevating tattoos to an artform. The magazine existed in print for three years / 12 issues, but has now evolved into an online and events brand. I still manage a team of contributors, research, write and publish content for Things&Ink's blog, and manage FacebookTwitter and Instagram, which have become communities for like-minded creatives. I have become a spokesperson for the tattoo community, providing comment on the latest issues for NewsnightChannel 5 NewsBBC Radio London, among others. My first book, Tattoo Street Style, published by Ebury (part of Penguin Random House), is out now.

I have curated a number of art exhibitions, including Miniature Ink and Miniature Ink II in association with Atomica Gallery in London, #tiarchive – a celebration of the end of Things&Ink as a print publication and 'Identity' an exhibition at Into You. I have also guest curated for the National Maritime Museum in Cornwall. Last year, I organised and curated Strike: The Helmet Project, which included work by Grayson Perry and the Chapman Brothers, to raise awareness for brain injury charity Headway.

I edit cancer charity Sarcoma UK's quarterly publication Connect, which aims to inspire newly diagnosed patients.

I am an experienced and accurate sub-editor and have worked on the following titles: Time OutHello! Fashion MonthlyStarNew!, Men's HealthAt HomeStylistReign magazine for the Bentall Centre, Weight WatchersYou & Your WeddingMother&BabyTop Santé, Superdrug's DARE magazine, Woman's OwnWoman and Woman's Weekly.
