Marie Le Conte is a French-Moroccan journalist based in London and an alumna of the BA Journalism (2013) course at the University of Westminster.

She worked as the Evening Standard's political diarist and was BuzzFeed News' media and politics correspondent before going freelance over two years ago. She has written for the Sunday Times, Guardian, New Statesman, Prospect Magazine, Stylist and has appeared on, among others, the Today programme, Newsnight, Victoria Derbyshire and Any Questions?, as well as speaking at Chatham House, Sciences Po Paris, the House of Commons, and the Foreign Policy Centre.

Marie has also frequently made time to come to talk to students on the BA Journalism course about media careers, Twitter and working as a political journalist. So it’s a real pleasure to be able to celebrate the publication of her first book, Haven’t You Heard? Gossip, Power and how politics really works (published by 535) with BA Journalism students and alumni.
