This is the airing cupboard/notice board/soapbox/scrapbook of the freelance arts journalist and writer, Hilary A White. HAW is a weekly contributor in the Sunday Independent, Ireland’s largest paper, and the Irish Independent. Every now and again, he is known to surface on State.ie. His work has appeared in the Irish Times, Irish Examiner and Adventure Travel Magazine. He has turned up in lots of publications, some sadly no longer with us, some that never looked back. Much like reading DBC Pierre or talking to girls, live national radio no longer scares him as it once did. He is passionate about film, music, books, travel, wildlife, rugby and food but who isn’t. He is a sparviter and if you know what that is you’ll go a bit easier on him when you next cross his path. He edits an international falconry publication which is a labour of love he does solely for the glamorous perks it affords. He’d love to tell you more but he has to pop out for an interview, a radio slot, a press screening, a live Q&A with someone noteworthy or whatnot. Copy-editing, proof-reading and writing artist bios, promo blurbs, press releases etc are not quite second nature but certainly third.
