Rod Gilmour is an experienced UK freelance news and sports journalist (Sussex-based), magazine journalist and British author.

If you are looking for help with editorial needs in both print and digital, let’s discuss your project.

In print, I have written for every national newspaper in the UK – a majority on sport – been syndicated across the globe with agency work for Reuters and covered an array of Ashes series, world championships, World Cups and Olympics.

In commercial, I have worked with a variety of national sports governing bodies to enhance their profile and leverage coverage in both national and regional media. I have also worked with major brands to deliver standout advertorials and project series.

In digital, I have worked with countless CMS platforms since 2005 and can remember, just, the myriad of passwords we seem to generate each passing year. I have been a Yahoo! front page editor since 2014.

I conceived and delivered the first self-published book to be nominated for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Awards.

I have since written and edited six books and always looking towards finding the next project.
