Josh Hall

⇲ I’m a writer, editorial director, and artist-publisher. I run Possible Worlds, an independent publishing house and project space in Great Yarmouth, UK. We produce physical and digital publications that explore new ways to create and share knowledge.

As a freelance journalist I write extensively on workers’ rights, automation, decentralisation, data justice, and culture. This work has appeared in almost every UK national newspaper, Parliamentary reports, dozens of trade and specialist publications, and corporate editorial campaigns.

⇉ In recent years I’ve worked with organisations experimenting with decentralisation, culture, and creators’ rights, providing editorial direction, product development, and strategic consultancy. I’ve also worked on a range of film projects, including as a story consultant and music supervisor on music and culture documentaries for clients including Gucci and Frieze, and as an executive producer on several music videos. I’ve previously held senior in-house positions on both client and agency side, including as an Editorial Director at VICE’s creative services agency Virtue.

I’ve appeared on panels at festivals and conferences across Europe, and in 2017 my essay A Brief Period Of Turbulence was longlisted for the Notting Hill Editions Prize.
