About Lucy Holden

Lucy Holden is an author, screenwriter, and award-winning journalist. Her work focuses on current affairs and the anxious activities of her millennial generation, for which she has been described as a voice (either by Alastair Campbell, or a friend in the pub, she can’t remember).

Her first book LUCID, published by Simon and Schuster in February 2022, is currently in development for TV. It is the story of an extreme decade in an extreme generation. Told with her trademark humour and no-holds-barred honesty, it is a story of resilience and hope which touches on trauma and a family history of mental illness, as she tries to work out who she is and what her future will be in a world that feels upside down.

Lucy was trained by The Times in their London and Edinburgh offices. She won the Guardian Student Media Awards’ Feature Writer of the Year in 2013 before being shortlisted for Young Journalist of the Year at the British Press Awards in 2014. Now freelance, she writes features for publications including The Times, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, the Daily Mail and magazines including Grazia and Style.
