Hi, I’m Yvette – Acting Head Of Community Content and Travel Editor at Metro.co.uk.
I co-designed, launched and managed Metro’s phone, Kindle and tablet apps, the latter of which won Newspaper App Of The Year at the 2012 Newspaper Society Awards and Best Brand Development, Digital Editions, at the 2013 Online Media Awards.
I have worked for British media including Metro, The Sun, The Mail On Sunday, The Daily Mail, The Mirror, The People and The Independent.
I have won in-house awards at DMGT (Metro’s parent company) for innovation and creativity as well as being shortlisted for Freelance Of The Year at The Drum’s 2014 Online Media Awards.
I began my career as a music journalist writing for Touch magazine before covering hard news and the arts on regional papers The Maidenhead Advertiser and The Worcester News. I then moved on to the nationals.
I spend my time writing sex, food, travel and mental health features and hunting down the best bloggers on the internet to write for Metro.co.uk. If that’s you please message me here or on my Facebook page, or tweet me @YvetteCaster.
