Writer, Editor, Proofreader
I’m an all-round wordsmith and language lover, and I’m at my happiest when telling stories. I write compelling and entertaining content, and am also a skilled proofreader and editor who can knock the gnarliest of documents into concise and readable shape.
Having honed my eye for detail as an online editor and a newspaper sub, I’ve gone on to magazine writing and senior communications roles with various organisations. I offer high quality work based on many years of experience.
I enjoy writing and editing for both print and online channels, and am happy to take on projects of all shapes and sizes. Deadlines are no issue, I stay friendly and unflappable no matter how great the challenge, and those I’ve worked with can attest to the quality of what I produce.
Whether it’s a small job you need a hand with, or a major project involving a longer commitment, I’d love to hear from you and help you tell your story. Why not say hi?
