Welcome to my website.
My name is Julia Horton. I am a freelance journalist covering human rights and international development, conservation and the environment, travel and general features.
Based in Scotland, my overseas assignments include reporting on the Asian Boxing Day Tsunami and interviewing and photographing landmine victims of the ongoing conflict in Colombia.
I recently highlighted the discrimination suffered by Dalit girls in Nepal in an article which was longlisted in The Guardian's International Development Journalism Awards.
Travel writing has taken me to every continent, exploring places as varied as Antarctica, India and Kenya for newspapers, magazines and websites.
In Bhutan I produced features on both travel and conservation projects in this isolated Himalayan Kingdom.
I take pictures to illustrate my articles and also collaborate with award-winning photographers.
