This, coupled with a degree in marketing and considerable experience in event PR and corporate writing, means I'm ready to take your brief.
You name it I can do it, and probably already have: news releases, newsletters, E-newsletters, articles and features, profiles, case studies, ghost writing, copywriting, promotional literature, advertorials, interviews, web content, research and reports.
I can write about anything, and probably already have: sport, engineering, property, health, fitness, fashion, food - to name just a handful of subject areas.
I have a way with words. I can make a story out of anything, even the dullest set of facts. I can make complicated subjects easy to understand. I can put down in words the ideas in your head - in plain English.
What's more, you'll find me fun, friendly and easy to get along with...so let's talk.
