Sport and fitness journalist Nicola Joyce has been commissioned by The Washington Post’s Sunday book review section, Book World.

The Washington Post’s non-fiction Editor discovered Nicola via an online search, seeking a writer with strengths in a niche area: swimming. Nicola has twice swum the English Channel and has written at length about her own swimmning experiences. In addition, she has worked as a freelance features writer for consumer sport and fitness publications since 2004 and has written countless reviews of books, kit and consumables.

In the words of the commissioning editor: “…I saw what you’ve done in the water and read what you wrote about it and thought, look no more, perfect match up for this book.”

Nicola’s previous high-profile commissions include two chapters in a book released by The Observer.
