I can write factual and accurate copy and also enjoy being more creative. One of my main skills is turning complex information into compelling and easy to read copy.
The majority of my work has been with the charity sector.
Area Covered: Glasgow and surrounding area.
Work Experience Summary: My main experience is in copywriting and editing news and features for websites. I worked for more than five years with an international development charity in London. Jobs there included Information Officer and Online News Editor. I was responsible for researching and writing news stories and planning and writing a monthly e-newsletter. I also edited the web copy of colleagues.
Currently, I am a part-time Communications Assistant with an organisation that works with asylum seekers and refugees in Glasgow. This role includes leading on New Media projects; editing and uploading web content; helping the Media Officer with media campaigns, for example by writing press releases; and keeping our wikipedia entry up-to-date.
I spent 10 months in India where I worked as a voluntary copywriter for a charity. As part of this role I started an e-newsletter and magazine, and visited projects to interview people for features and case studies for these publications.
Education Summary: I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism from the London School of Journalism and an Honours Degree in Film and Media Studies from the University of Stirling.
