The Travel Writing Lifestyle: Interview With Katie Silcox

by Jennifer Roberts

After her two travel writing jobs became redundant in quick succession more than ten years ago, Katie Silcox accepted an opportunity in India, planning to stay for a year or two. 13 years later, she has yet to return to life in the UK and instead has found herself as far afield as Dubai, Sri Lanka, and, more recently, Greece. In order to find work in the various countries she’s lived in, she developed a diverse skill set and ended up working not only as a writer but as an editor, producer, photo editor, content lead and communications specialist. She’s currently the Managing Editor at Citizen Femme, as well as a freelance writer and copywriter for various publications and platforms, including Condé Nast Traveller, Kuoni, Curio Collection by Hilton, Time Out, and more.

In her recent interview with Nathan Thomas, Katie talks about the experience that made her realize she would have to discover her inner strength if she wanted to live abroad; the many ways that her versatile skill set has served her travel writing lifestyle; her advice for female travelers; why a bit of chaos and uncertainty can be a good thing; and much more.
