I’ve written about the idea of the barefoot writer and what makes it so special.
The story has been featured on ABC News, The Guardian, the New York Times, CNN, Fox News, the BBC, Associated Press, The Huffington Post, NPR and the BBC World Service.
The story was also featured on BBC Radio 4 and the BBC Radio Scotland programme Barefoot Writers.
In this video series, the barefooted writer is interviewed by Anna, a writer from the UK.
The article is the first in a series that will be published in the coming weeks.
The Barefoot Writer (BWS) is a word which describes someone who has never had to do any manual labour, who is completely self-sufficient, and who uses their bare feet to work on projects of their choice.
This person may be a freelancer, a member of a union, or even a regular working person.
BWS are not the same as the word “boutique” and this is where I wanted to explore the idea.
The Barefoot writer is someone who works full-time in a traditional profession, such as a tailor, chef or photographer.
Boris Johnson has described the term “barefoot journalist” as a “fringe, fringe, fringe term”, but I’m happy to say it’s a term that I can support.
I’m not saying that it’s bad to have a foot in the shoes of the writer, or that it doesn’t matter how many hours they put in writing, but I think the bare foot writer is important.
