Service Description

I tend to write about what I am doing and am attracted by projects that offer me the opportunity to try something new.

Most of my experience has been in the Arts, but recently I wrote a personal piece for the Guardian Newspaper. I can usually turn my hand to most things and relish a challenge.

I write and direct for the theatre as well as running entertainment events and live art installations.

I have an excellent ear for dialogue.

I have experience writing copy for press releases, flyers, websites and other promotional material.

I currently also work with young people in an educational setting and am looking for opportunities to put some of that experience into my writing work.

Proofreading.
Updating website copy with interesting creative material.
Producing press releases, promotional copy and design briefs for events and services.
Journalistic pieces on my main topics of interest (reviews, interviews, storytelling).
Dialogues for business role play/training scenarios.
Plays for use in school settings.
Educational material to specification.
