Miriam Wells

impact editor The Bureau of Investigative Journalism

Miriam Wells took up the newly-created role of Impact Editor at The Bureau of Investigative Journalism in June 2019, after three years as production editor. She has built a strategy to take the Bureau's work off the page and into the world, ensuring through a collaborative and creative approach that it connects with key audiences, benefits affected communities and helps drive top-down and bottom-up change.

Prior to working at the Bureau Miriam worked as an editor at Vice News, as a correspondent in Latin America for international outlets and as a consultant at Human Rights Watch. She started her career at the Argus newspaper in Brighton and Hove before spending four years working for BBC radio. Miriam hopes there will be many more impact editors in newsrooms in years to come and would love to talk to anyone at Perugia interested in the role journalism plays in society, and how to play that role better.
