About Lottie Gross

Journalism & travel writing

I’ve been published online, in print magazines and in travel guidebooks and coffee table titles. Head here to see more of my writing.

Digital content & social media

From 2013 to 2017 I managed Rough Guides’ highly successful online content and social media. In 2015 alone, our Facebook following and engagement more-than doubled and, during my time at the publisher, our website traffic grew from 600,000 monthly users to two million.

In May of 2017, I moved on to launch loveEXPLORING – a new travel inspiration and advice site for digital publisher Love Inc (the brains behind loveMONEY and loveFOOD). I grew the site from 20,000 users in month one to more than 60,000 monthly users by May 2018 and our team tripled in size after just six months online.

I left Love Inc to pursue a more flexible lifestyle as a freelance writer & editor. Get in touch here if you’re interested in my writing/editing services.

Speaking & training

I have given one-to-one training and group seminars on social media and online content, as well as mentoring second year journalism students at London College of Communications. I’ve spoken at a wide variety of industry events and on travel-related panels for the British Guild of Travel Writers, PRCA, and at Cambridge University.
