I have written a wide variety of features on an array of topics. I am also a good news writer and can adapt my style to write for both print and online.
Writing is my passion and I take pride in all my work. I approach writing an article with the audience at the forefront of my mind and always consider the perspective of the reader. I write with creative flair and want to make sure the reader is kept interested at all times.
I am a confident proofreader and in all my roles have been responsible for sub-editing the work of other team members and contributors. I can also source images for the printed publications, write my own headlines and add picture captions.
Area Covered: London, Bedfordshire, Wider UK areas.

As staff writer for this specialist finance publication I was responsible for researching and writing copy for all areas of the publication. Working closely with the editor I kept a close eye on the industry, looking for new ideas for both news stories and features. I quickly developed relationships with industry representatives, and frequently met with contacts in person and spoke over the phone. A large part of my role involved speaking with and interviewing leading industry players. I also frequently travelled overseas to attend conferences and conduct meetings. As well as creating copy for the magazine, I was responsible for uploading daily news stories to the isf magazine website and subbing other commissioned features for the magazine.
