My name is Rachel Howells. I’m a journalist based in Swansea, but I have worked across the UK. I am a director of the local news co-operative Local News Port Talbot and a PhD student at Cardiff University studying the effects of the closure of a local newspaper on the democratic participation of the people of Port Talbot.

This blog is a collection of postings, feeds and links that are relevant to my research and the Local News project in Port Talbot.

If you’d like to get in touch, please leave me a comment. Mark it ‘not for publication’ if you prefer.
