During my time on my degree I was involved in organising and running writer's workshops with other students on the course, managing feedback in a group environment so that it was delivered in a controlled and professional manner. I also assisted younger students as a student mentor during my second year of study, helping to guide other students writing.
I graduated my degree in 2009 with a 2:1 BA (Hons) and have been working as a Customer Relationship Manager for Barclaycard since then, mostly writing letters in response to customer complaints, but also with some telephone based discussion. This was a challenging role and I was able to develop strong active listening skills, identifying what customers wanted and needed and delivering these needs and wants in a professional manner in writing in such as way as to gain the best response from my customers. This was a real challenge to my writing skills as you can imagine and I was able to develop a very adaptive style of writing as it constantly had to be shaped to the needs of individual customers.
Currently I am working on my first book and a collection of children's stories whilst looking for flexible work to supplement my income as I no longer work for Barclaycard having felt it was not what I really wanted to do with my life. I also work for Shiverpool, a local hauntings tour company, as a guide and also helping with writing and event production.
Area Covered: Liverpool, though I am able to work nationally through electronic communications.
