Feature - A Plum Job

Peter and Heather Barron are experienced feature writers.

Peter continues to be a regular Northern Echo  columnist which - under Peter's editorship - became known for numerous high-impact media campaigns  on a range of social issues affecting the north east of England.

He is perhaps best known for Grandad at Large, formerly  Dad At Large, which for the past 25 years, has followed the trials and tribulations of his life as a father-of-four and now includes Peter's new experiences as a grandfather-of-one. Both funny and poignant, it has become a Northern Echo institution and has spawned four books. The column is published every other Thursday.

Peter also writes a regular Monday column in The Northern Echo, looking back at the previous week, with a mix of serious and light-hearted topics.

Heather, who also trained as a journalist at Darlington College, is a regular contributor to magazines, notably Living. She also supplies occasional features to The Northern Echo and other publications, and specialises in producing high-quality, insightful sponsored content for a variety of leading brands.

Both Peter and Heather are available for writing commissions.​
