About Lottie Gross

Journalism & travel writing

My writing has appeared on RoughGuides.com, Mashable.comNational Geographic Traveller UK, Weather2Travel.comSkyscanner.net and in The Guardian & The Obeserver (print and online). I have contributed to travel guidebooks and am a member of the British Guild of Travel Writers.

Despite my relatively short career, I’ve reported from a variety of places for different publications. Most recently I wrote the Albania chapter for The Rough Guide to Europe on a Budget, I’ve made independent films in the harsh deserts of northern Kenya and I spent summer 2015 live-reporting from Glastonbury Festival for Mashable.

Social media & content management

From June 2013 onwards I have managed the Rough Guides social media channels, growing their following and engagement. In 2015 alone, our Facebook following and engagement more-than doubled, and I was part of the team that created a viral video that saw four million views in just one month.

I also manage the content and social media for my own digital product: Oh My Word! – an app and Chrome extension for word nerds with over 650 users.

I have used my expertise in social media to deliver seminars and talks to large groups on how best to optimize their business pages.
