Inside Housing is the most widely read magazine for the UK social housing sector. In spring 2015, Katie edited a 36-page supplement to tie in with the biggest event in the housing calendar, the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual conference in Manchester. As social landlords waited anxiously to find out their fate under the new Conservative government, the supplement took an in-depth look at the apparently unstoppable shift of power from Westminster to the regions, and whether councils could ever reprise their role as major housebuilders.
The supplement also included four “sponsored chapters” – bespoke editorial produced in association with an external sponsor. Katie worked with the sponsors to identify the key themes of each four-page chapter and develop the content, commissioning copy from independent experts and freelance journalists and editing it in line with the magazine’s exacting editorial standards. She has since edited four more chapters, which appeared in Inside Housing in November to tie in with sections focusing on asset management and housing finance.
