Equally I am able to write entertaining and informative features on a range of subjects • particularly showbiz, fashion, travel and lifestyle • even to tight deadlines. I also think my experience as a tabloid headline writer would make a suitable candidate for advertising copywriter work. I work four days a week at the Mirror which leaves me one full day at home to devote my full attention to freelance projects.
