Joanna Moorhead is a freelance writer. She works mostly for the Guardian (especially for the Family section on a Saturday) and for a whole range of other outlets including the Independent and Independent on Sunday; Good Housekeeping magazine; Psychologies; YOU magazine and Mumsnet (for whom she writes some of the core content sections). She writes mostly about families and family life and has been steeped in it herself for the last 20 years as a mother of four daughters, currently aged 10, 13, 17 and 20. Her career has, roughly speaking, followed the stages her own children were at - ie she wrote about babies and breastfeeding when she was giving birth and raising young children, and now she is up to her eyes in student finance applications and teenage drinking issues, she writes about those instead. She also makes occasional forays into entirely different areas of journalism, eg arts journalism, and also dabbles from time to time in radio - she recently finished making a second arts documentary for Radio 3. She travels widely with her work, although she is not a travel writer.
