Eat Your Words Organiser

Anna Turns is a biologist turned journalist specialising in sustainability and food.

She’s food editor for MANOR magazine and writes regularly for various other regional and national publications including Coast, Western Morning News' West mag, The Food Assembly blog and The Food Rush.

With 16 years experience in television production and magazine journalism, she knows how to bring a good story to life.

Anna is a member of the Guild of Food Writers and is passionate about Devon’s thriving food and drink scene. As an Oxford biology graduate, she has a keen interest in discovering chefs and independent producers who genuinely champion ethical food philosophies.

When she’s not interviewing inspirational chefs or tracking down exciting artisan producers, she’ll most likely be found paddleboarding down the estuary or swimming around Burgh Island.
