Overview

Travel writing is both my passion and my profession, so if you're looking for a dedicated and highly creative travel writer your search could be over!

Hi, my name is Claire, and I believe I have all the qualities a great travel writer needs - the educational experience (a degree in Tourism Management), the practical experience (employment within the travel and tourism industry), the writing experience (around 2,000 travel articles written and counting), and of course I've traveled extensively so I can write from first-hand experience on...

Service Description

Member of the International Travel Writers Alliance and the Federation of BC Writers.

I've been writing for a living since 2007 though my writing experience goes many years beyond this in the form of unpaid writing work, and writing for pleasure.

I was born, raised and educated in England and lived there up until 2007 when I emigrated to British Columbia in Canada. Though I love going back to the UK to visit friends and family, I now consider Canada to be my home.

My love for travel, along with a degree in Tourism Management, and experience working in the tourism industry, means I am first and foremost a travel writer. Travel writing is where I excel, though there are many other areas of writing in which I shine too!

My other specialist subject is real estate writing, particularly for the UK and Canadian marketplace, and whether it's travel writing or real estate writing I enjoy doing it for any medium - web content, blogs, article writing, feature writing, creative writing and more.

Keeping an eye on the property market in both countries is a hobby of mine, so I relish the opportunity to write on this subject at any time, injecting a great enthusiasm that some other writers just don't have.

You can see some of my real estate writing work on the Canadian Renters website where I am a guest blogger: http://www.canadianrenters.ca/people/claire-bolgil/, and on the real estate pages of Professors House website: http://www.professorshouse.com/your-home/real-estate/
