Hi, first things first… I’m not really called Girl next the Sea. My name is Harriet Cooper and I am an editor, journalist, copywriter and content provider, with over twenty years' experience.
I first cut my teeth at Hello! magazine and have since worked on the features desk of the Evening Standard and as Features Editor at Red magazine, before heading over to content marketing agency Cedar, where I spent many years working on British Airways’ High Life magazine and The London Magazine.
Since moving from London to Cley-next-the-Sea, a small village on the North Norfolk coast, I now work on a freelance basis, specialising in lifestyle, the arts and culture, and travel.
As well as contributing to publications including luxury style guide The Glossary, The Telegraph and, more locally, North Norfolk Living magazine and Best of Norfolk, I also create content for everyone from British Airways and Mandarin Oriental to English Heritage and the Royal Opera House.
I’m always keen to hear about commissions, projects, ideas and collaborations, so please do get in touch. You can also follow me on Instagram @girlnextthesea
