Writer recommendations

    I've been tasked with recommending some great feature(?) writers/interviewers/story tellers, to include in a brief for a company 'people book' project (London HQ).

    Can anyone point me in the right direction re. industry sites I should be looking at, and what 'style' writer I should be looking for?

    Firstly, I'd really be careful about posting a project brief so openly like you have done above/online; I doubt the company will be pleased!

    Secondly, is it that you're looking for writers to create a features piece/pieces about inspirational people/employees, or are you looking to cover inspirational people who are writers? If the former, which I suspect, it sounds like you're attempting a cross between a corporate brochure or marketing pamphlet and a This American Life podcast.; a tricky balance to strike!

    Also, I love the keywords of the company -- 'freedom' & 'confidence.' At your next meeting, suggest some others - 'profit' or 'bottom line' or just plain old 'corporate b/s'! :D

    Joking aside, I could probably turn my hand to this so shout if you're really stuck and need the 'mood' profile pieces you appear to be seeking. Best of luck!

    Thanks Lupita, the outline I posted was very much an initial idea as opposed to the brief, but have amended.

    I have since short listed some writers who looked appropriate based on their prior work so all good but thank you for your input.
