Work

Writer Linnea DunneI write, edit, proofread and brainstorm content, most happily when its sole purpose is to change the world and most effectively with a coffee at hand. It’s been said on more than one occasion that I am ridiculously conscientious and have stupidly high standards, neither of which is a lie.

Among other things, I have written a book about the Swedish concept of ‘lagom’ (order it here!) and produced copy for Bookatable and MasterCard, op-eds and editorials for the Guardian and the Irish Times, straplines for Kia, blog posts for the f-word and blur Group, and translations for FRII, Chevrolet and & other Stories. If you want to collaborate on a book or need an opinion piece or help with copy-editing, storytelling or anything else that might require a sharp pen and keen eye, drop me an email on info [at] linneadunne [dot] com.
