Local Dorset Editors

You are here:

Janine Pulford


A director of Pulford Publicity, Janine has over 20 years experience as an editor. After being made redundant in 2003, she set up a publishing company in Ferndown to ensure the East Dorset community didn’t lose a much-loved local magazine. Now editing two in-house titles a month, Janine has covered some of the most controversial stories in the area and among other achievements she helped save West Moors Library from closure in 2011. Her heart is in her community and writing is in her veins – she has also written six novels.
