ABOUT

Shedworking is a daily updated guide for people who work in garden offices and other shedlike atmospheres.

It is edited and published by Alex Johnson who was part of The Independent newspaper's online team from 2007 to 2022, and the founding editor/publisher of the two internationally popular blogs, Shedworking and Bookshelf

His book Shedworking: The Alternative Workplace Revolution was published by Frances Lincoln (2010). Since then he has published several more books, with more in the pipeline, all of which you can read about on his personal website.

He is the UK correspondent for Fine Books & Collections magazine and writes about garden offices (and for many years snooker) as a columnist for The Idler magazine. He is also a half-decent snooker player and a founding judge of the National Shed of the Year competition.
