Arts Journalism

The monthly Culture magazine was published by The Journal between 2005 and 2017. It was a glossy publication dedicated to covering the arts in the North East of England. In his introduction to the first magazine, editor David Whetstone wrote that it was a ‘must read for all who love North-East life’. Tamzin worked as an arts writer for Culture from its inception until 2013.

Among the fascinating people she interviewed were Grayson Perry, Julia Donaldson, Lauren Child, Kathryn Williams and Benjamin Zephaniah. Here are a selection of her favourite interviews with artists, writers, musicians, actors and theatre-makers.
