SONIA DESPREZ

is in charge of Live Magazine’s special editions, as well as being an independent journalist. Following her childhood devotion to reading and synchronized swimming, she studied theatre and literature, and traveled widely -- from the Himalayas to Patagonia -- and from profession to profession, working jobs as diverse as actress, costume artist for the Lido, theatre production and cultural attaché for the French embassy in Belgrade (Serbia). Throughout these adventures, she kept diaries, web chronicles, and a blog. After becoming a journalist (for Le Journal du Dimanche, Grazia, M (le Monde), Society, A Nous Paris, Marie Claire...), she discovered Live Magazine, which blended her two passions -- theatre and journalism -- she almost fainted (from joy) and decided to join the team.

She was previously director of the Radio France’s publishing branch, where she relaunched France Culture’s Papiers magazine and co-published hundreds of books, records, apps and games adapted from public radio’s programming. She has also been an editor of children’s books for the Seuil and Larousse.
