I’m Agatha (she/her), Remote Writer at Thred. After a Philosophy Degree in Edinburgh, I’m now living in gloomy Glasgow as a journalist (and loving life). I’m interested in tech, local news, and surviving the climate apocalypse. Follow me on LinkedIn, or let me know your thoughts via email.

Hi, I’m Agatha.
I’m a journalist, as well as a passionate artist, filmmaker and creative writer.
Recently I completed a work placement with Tickir, a news start-up based mostly on TikTok. My time in the endless scroll has taught me a lot about the online-news era, and I want to continue that learning process by exploring the evolution of digital journalism hands-on.
I am particularly interested in the future of the internet, and how we can maintain a strong community in a world that is getting more abstract. At the core of all this are my hopes for a future where we mitigate the worst effects of climate change instead of letting it destroy us.
When I’m not being dramatic in bios you can find me painting, cooking, writing poems for my lover and trying to bring back Tumblr.

Those familiar with the ins and outs of gardening may already be in the know, but wildflower lawns could soon become a mainstream staple of the gardening industry. What exactly are they, though? Grown with mixes of native species, instead...
