I'm ready to undertake writing work in a number of different genres, but my specialties include travel writing, academic writing in English literature and online content production.

Having completed two separate writing internships and achieved a first class honours in English Literature and ancient history at university, I pay particular attention...

Service Description

My policy to only accept jobs I know I will enjoy has meant that my writing projects until now have been engaging and fun. I aim to let my enthusiasm and genuine interest in my subject matter shine through in every aspect of my prose - from research to production.

TRAVEL WRITING / TRAVEL BLOGGING

From January 2012 to July 2012 I was employed as a travel writing intern for Gap Daemon, a social network built for low budget and gap year travellers. My position took me through South East Asia and Europe and I produced articles on a variety of locations, activities and experiences.

I continue to search for travel writing engagements which will allow me to express a unique voice and creative flair, and I hope will help convey a real and sense of place and feeling.

My writing style is largely creative and I am experienced at producing optimised articles, with a keyword focus. I look forward to working on projects which require an energetic and lively feel.


OPTIMISED CONTENT PRODUCTION

From October 2012 to February 2013 I worked as an in house SEO for a small to medium enterprise that had a number of websites in a variety of business sectors. Consequently I am able to produce keyword focused website copy that is engaging and informative, persuasive and accurate.

In addition to copy production I carry out keyword research, and can factor this into job quotations if required.
