In June 2010 Alex Wade became Acting Editor of award-winning regional glossy Cornwall Today. Alex took over from Kirstie Newton, the incumbent editor, when she went on maternity leave.
Alex had written for Cornwall Today since November 2007, when he became the magazine's Art Editor. Since becoming Acting Editor, Alex introduced a themed-issue strategy to the magazine, with editions covering surfing (August 2010), eco issues (September 2010) and food (March 2011), to name but a few. Alex continues to work as the magazine's Art Editor but, in October 2011, stepped down from jointly editing the title with Kirstie Newton to concentrate on both his literary career and legal work.
