Sylvia Arthur is a writer whose work explores issues of identity, diaspora and place. After graduating with a Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism from the University of Westminster, she worked as a runner for Sky News before becoming a reporter at News Africa magazine. She freelanced for The Guardian, the BBC and the British Journalism Review and worked as a senior researcher/assistant producer for the BBC, ITV and Sky.

During this time, she has travelled the continent extensively, meeting Europeans from all walks of life with compelling stories to tell about life in the Other Europe in a time of austerity. In 2013, she received an MA in Creative Non-Fiction Writing from City University, London and recently published her first book about finding a job in a tough economy.
