Erica Buist: writer, journalist, speaker

Welcome. This bit of the internet is mine. I claimed it. But you’re welcome to stay as long as you want.

I’m a freelance writer and journalist, formerly a staffer at the Guardian, and I lecture at universities across the UK about features writing. 

I’m travelling to seven of the world’s death festivals and writing a book about it called This Party’s Dead, to be published in 2020 by Unbound/ Penguin Random House.
