I’ve written thousands of articles during my career – almost 2,500 in the last five years to 2020 on Esports News UK and British Esports Association alone – and there are only so many my brain can remember!

Because of this, I wanted a place where I could list some of my more standout pieces of work. I’ve included a few articles to start with and will add to this page over time.

News

While news writing is one of my favourite types of content nowadays, it was not always the case. At university my news lecturer Dan Hogan used to give us a few days to find news stories in our local area. One time, I was so stuck, I wrote about some new flats being built. When I received my paper back, Dan had written: ‘Dom. What the **** is this?!’

It wasn’t until a year into my first job at Auto Trader did I begin to really understand news. Here are some of the stories I’ve broken, plus some context around them.

Please note, I will never use my position at British Esports to hear about industry rumours and break stories on Esports News UK! That would be unprofessional and a conflict of interest. Unfortunately it means I have had to sit on many interesting pieces of news and not write them, but that’s the current position I’m in.

Features

I used to love writing features and investigative pieces, but I like to put in deep levels of research for them and, given my current situation with three kids and (almost) two jobs, I just don’t have the time to put these together to a standard I would like.

Nevertheless, here are a few that stand out to me which I wrote before my twins came along.

Opinion

Columns are so important in the world of journalism nowadays (excluding hot takes designed to mislead or intentionally anger the reader), in my opinion. Here are a handful of mine:

Other work

I’ve also done a lot of speaking work over the years, chairing panels at conferences like ESI London, PCR Boot Camp, Pocket Gamer Connects, giving talks on journalism and esports at schools and more.
