I'm a 22 year-old sports writer, fan and player currently studying journalism and PR at the University of Newcastle. I started writing for TAT Sport in 2015 focusing on F1. If sport isn't a passion of mine it would have to be an obsession. I write in order to share that obsession with the world with the hope that others might enjoy it as much as I do.

Is a writer, sportsman, car nut, historian and an IT professional. His writing career began with writing boring technical computer manuals and a great many trees were sacrificed in their publication. Fortunately for the forests technology has moved on and his more recent technical writing has been published electronically. In the nineties Paul found the time to write on subjects close to his heart and was a winner of the Womens Weekly Short Story Competition in the crime story section. He has since written two novels, childrens books and numerous short stories. His interest in cars and military history led to articles published in the Cat Whiskers and quizzes in an online American Military Magazine. Paul is also a contributor to various other TAT publications.
Jess' first love is tennis, but she is very much a general sport lover so enjoys the opportunity to write about different things as they come her way. Jess started contributing to TAT Sport in 2013 and it has helped her develop her writing skills and broaden her sporting horizons. She feels lucky to have the chance to fill the editor position with such a great team around her and has learnt so much from everyone who's written articles for the magazine.
My name is Colm Boohig, from Ireland. To be fair, I am interested in lots that life has to offer but my most consistent love since I was a young'n has been sport and creative writing. If I wasn't kicking a ball around I was trying my hardest to come across as interesting with a pen or a keyboard. This routine eventually landed me a gig as a sports reporter for the main newspaper in my home county of Cork, while I also got involved in the world of PR in Dublin, working as an assistant accounts executive. Having lived in Australia I was lucky enough to become involved with TAT and have steadily worked my way up in the last year. I don't plan to stop progressing anytime soon. My main goal is to become creatively involved in the world of sport and entertainment on a daily basis, if only to justify the amount of time I have spent watching and reading up on the world of comedy and sport, and all that it has to offer! It is an ambition in which I am determined to achieve.
My name is Ian and I am 24 years old and from the UK. I have been writing feature sport articles for various Soccer websites for the past 8 months. I only decided to try my hand at sports journalism due to an unfortunate cycling accident in Melbourne, which subsequently left me immobile for several weeks. I now see it, though, as a blessing in disguise, as I now have a real passion for writing interesting and, at times, left field articles.Next year I will be based in Vietnam for 6 months, as I will be working for an International Human Rights NGO. Whilst there I hope to continue to produce original and informative sport articles, and perhaps branch out into cricket and field hockey.Below is a link to my Soccerlens page - a reputable soccer blogging website for which I am a guest writer. http://soccerlens.com/author/ianjpowell/

My name's Brian and I'm from Cork City in Ireland. I'm currently studying a journalism course and would like to pursue a career in media, whether it be online or in the newspaper industry. Ultimately, I would love to do some sports writing for a national newspaper in Ireland. I have a keen interest in many sports, but have a particular interest in soccer, tennis and basketball. My first experience in the world of journalism was when I wrote for my university newspaper writing about the weekly hockey matches that the university teams were involved in. Although I knew very little about the sport at the time, I enjoyed my time there and believe it was a great learning curve for me.
