Verve Words is run by Vicky Carr, an award-winning journalist and writer based in Yorkshire.
Vicky has five years’ experience on newspapers in North and West Yorkshire, as well as extensive newsdesk experience. She has also written for magazines and newsletters for a range of audiences. Her work has included court reporting, hard news stories and human interest features. Among the people she has interviewed are Jenson Button, Dave Gorman, Edward Fox and Gok Wan.
But the interviews she has enjoyed most are the ones with ordinary people who have an extraordinary story to tell, such as the man who became homeless through no fault of his own and who managed to turn his life around, later becoming a volunteer with the homeless centre which had helped him in a time of crisis.
