Writer & Editor

Welcome to My Home

Dear readers, thank you for your time here.

I created this space on the one hand to introduce myself, and on the other hand to give a voice to the writers I have been publishing daily for several years now on Medium. Are you ready to go? It won’t be long, I promise!

Words have always attracted me.

Over the years, I have developed a passion for reading, editing, and publishing stories written by writers from all over the world.

From this passion was born Scribe in 2017, a project that is very close to my heart and to which I devote a large part of my free time.

If I had to summarize in a few words…

As long as I can remember, I have always loved writing.

Before I was ten, I developed my first scenarios: police investigations that we invented and staged with my friend at the time.

In college, I published my first short story, The Knight with the Magic Sword. It will be published (printed with the house’s printer) by Bonfruit Publishing, a house created for the occasion and named after the village where I grew up. We’re using the means at our disposal!

As I grew up, I create my first blogs and write about music news. A few years later, I joined a streaming platform as an editor and programmer. I write articles on album releases, edit thematic playlists and lead the community of listeners on social networks.

In 2012, I came across the mysterious Medium homepage. I leave my email address, and I wait. And then, the crush. The place I’ve always dreamed of writing has just been born.

I write and publish regularly on the platform. People like me sign up and also publish stories. Days go by and I lead a community of writers. I’m taking up the game of publishing and I like it.

In the meantime, my passion for surfing leads me to write for The Rider Post, an extreme sports magazine. I follow world championship events and write related articles. I dream of becoming a writer for the World Surf League.

In 2015, I joined the Medium editorial team as editor-in-chief and community manager for France. My main mission is to develop Medium’s French-speaking audience. I am the editor-in-chief of a publication that brings together French-speaking writers.

I manage Medium’s social media strategy in France. I translate into French articles from Medium’s official blog and work in collaboration with several countries in Europe and around the world.

I introduce Medium at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, at Médecins Sans Frontières, Orange, and in front of journalists from Le Monde. I also meet several times with executives from Hachette to talk about publishing and Medium.

This adventure lasts 2 years, until 2017 when Medium changes its strategy and refocuses its activities in the United States.

After that, I created Scribe, a publication on Medium which currently has more than 13,000 readers and a community of about 100 writers.

Every Sunday, I publish and send a letter to 4,500 subscribers in which I talk about the writers and stories that have been featured on the publication.

And that’s the story…

If writing is part of your life and you write on Medium, I would be very happy to read you. Tell me a piece of yourself and I’ll read it carefully.

Take care and above all, keep reading and writing!
