I have also had several short stories and works of fiction published and studied creative writing under the popular Welsh playwright Dic Edwards
As a media graduate who has worked in PR and marketing I can turn my hand to promotional work and press releases also, but my main focus is in creating interesting and entertaining content for publications on a wide variety of subjects.
My current employer has the following to say about my work:
\"Richard is a highly skilled writer who\'s weekly column has proved to be a huge success on our site. Known by all in the competitive gaming community Richard is respected and liked and players/managers often feel at ease talking to him. Richard has a great ability to really get involved in his subject matter, rather than reporting on the highs and lows from a distance Richard lives the moments with the players and then retells first hand his experience to a wider audeince who are always keen to see his unique insight.\"
Dic Edwards also described my work as:
\"Very distinctive, possessing real muscle and purposeÃƒï¿½Â’¢Ãƒ’¯Â’¿Â’½Ãƒï¿½Â’¦ It combines the experimental approach to language of fifties beat novelists with the grotesque creations you would see in German expressionism.\"
Ultimately I believe my strong point is my versatility. If you require a well written and interesting piece for your publication I will be happy to offer my services.
