Since 2003 I have worked for the local authority and have been responsible for writing and editing the tenants\' newsletter. I was also responsible for proof reading and ensuring that publications were in plain English. Prior to this I worked for the local Sure Start project where I was also responsible for communications with service users. Over the last few years I have had numerous articles and letters published in local and national publications as well as writing and editing newsletters, leaflets and other communications. I have also been responsible for writing press releases for a number of organisations. The subjects that I have written on have included:
Housing, particularly social housing
Local, national and international politics and international relations
Extremist politics, e.g. the far right
The Lisbon Treaty, Ireland, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and other topical issues
Broad issues regarding politics, philosophy, ideology and economics (i.e. theoretical issues)
As well as these subjects that could be described as \'current affairs\' I have also written on a number of historical issues, including:
The Iranian revolution of 1979
Ireland, including 1798, the Easter rising, the war of independence and the recent troubles
Cyprus, including the war of independence and the Turkish invasion of 1974
The Hillsborough disaster
Minority persecution throughout history
The break-up of Yugoslavia
Conflict in the Horn of Africa
I have also spoken in public on a number of occasions on these and other subjects.
I enjoy writing and am looking for a change in career that would better suit my skills.
