I can provide professional research, drafting, copywriting, editorial and proofreading skills over a wide range of areas.
1. Writing, Editing, Proofreading
I am a full time freelancer with experience writing for a range of markets and sectors, including fashion, finance, music, travel, home maintenance, real estate and emigration. I am also an experienced and well trained researcher able to undertake research on any subject so that everything I write is informative and substantive.
I have a lot of freelance copywriting experience, producing everything from web content and marketing copy, to market analysis reports and SEO rich articles across a wide range of subjects.
2. Journalism, Blogging
I also write product reviews/lifestyle/fashion/music articles for a number of print and online magazines, including Dazed & Confused and Clash Magazine. I have my own fashion and music blog, as well as providing blogs for clients including a London directory, a number of law firms and a record label and I am well versed in all forms of social networking.
I worked as a lawyer up until October 2008 when I left my job with a City firm to pursue a career as a writer and researcher. I am no longer a lawyer but I am still able to draw on the skills I gathered during those five years and so can assist with research, drafting and document interpretation. I also worked for a legal publisher for three years, so I am able to write authoritatively about the issues and challenges within the legal market and I edit the digital legal magazine Law & Finance (www.lfmagazine.com).
4. Working Style
I am used to keeping to tight deadlines and submitting work that is accurate, well structured and goes the extra mile in terms of effort and a little something extra. I have no problem tailoring copy to different audiences and aim to give everything I write some life so that it jumps off the page at the reader!
