About Tom

Hi, I’m Tom J Doyle. 

I’m 25-year-old English graduate from the University of Sussex and an NCTJ-qualified journalist and sub-editor.

I am available for immediate copy writing and sub-editing work – to get in touch, please email me at tomjdoyle@hotmail.co.uk.

I specialise in football, music and news writing, and have written features and photography articles as well.

I am currently a freelance writer for FourFourTwo magazine, Squawka.com and Goal.com.

From July 2012 to April 2013 I interned for Goal as a matchday reporter and sub-editor. I wrote news, previews, attended Premier League and Champions League matches and mixed zones, conducted interviews, and managed the LIVE blog as well as the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the site (with over 140,ooo Twitter followers).

As well as sports writing, I am also the live music previews and barlife writer for the What’s On Guide Brighton & Hove.

I worked for Sussex Newspapers (Johnston Press) as a templater/page-editor at the West Sussex County Times from March 2011-October 2012.

I graduated with a 2:1 in English from the University of Sussex in 2009.

I  gained an NCTJ certificate in news writing and sub-editing with Brighton Journalist Works in September 2010.

I worked as an online news writer for TalkTalk for six months in 2010, delivering daily news content and weekly previews for the video games section of their website. Examples of my TalkTalk work can be found here.

I play bass for Artifacts, a Crawley-based band packed full of big sounds and ambitions.
Follow us on Twitter, and take a listen on Soundcloud to a few of our songs.

I’ve been a member of The Argus’ voluntary review team since October 2010, and I also review music releases and concerts for Soundblab.

I also work in the accounts department for Nature Publishing Group in Kings Cross in London, and have experience working in a bar/restaurant, so if you need numbers crunched or pints pulled, I’m also your man!
