Hello! I’m Lucy, a writer, political journalist, and disability advocate.

I’m re-entering the world of freelancing, having spent a few years working at the heart of the BBC’s political operation.

You can find my CV here.


At heart, I’m a writer. I simply love words and language.

I’m available for reporting, feature and opinion commissions on British politics, disability issues, feminism and diversity. I also do non-fiction book reviews.

For all writing queries, please email lucywebsterjournalist@gmail.com.

I also write a newsletter about all of the above. It’s called The View From Down Here and you can subscribe here.

The newsletter has replaced the blog on this website, but I’ve kept the archive live – mostly for sentimental reasons.

If you want to chat about my book-in-progress, please contact my agent, Jess Molloy, at Curtis Brown.


As a full-time wheelchair user, I am passionate about changing the conversation about disability.

I’m available for speaking on disability, diversity and ableism – whether at an event, training, or for your programme/podcast/anything else.

If you’re wondering what I’ve done before, I’ve been on BBC Breakfast, Radio 4’s Today, and Newsnight. I’ve also spoken at various awareness events in schools and colleges.

If you think I’d be a good fit for you, drop me an email and we can discuss rates.

Other fun stuff

I’m an extremely proud Fellow of the John Schofield Trust, which works to improve diversity in the media.

Looking to find me elsewhere? I’m on Twitter and Instagram.

Oh, and if you like my work, you can buy me a coffee on Ko-fi.

I can’t wait to hear from you. Happy reading!
