As a professional freelance writer and journalist, I pride myself on being able to write effectively for both online audiences and printed publications on an almost limitless range of topics.

Service Description

The main body of my work consists of short and medium length articles for magazines and newspapers (both factual and opinion pieces) and content writing for online articles, websites, and blogs.
I am an experienced researcher, interviewer and journalistic writer as well as being equally at home producing and editing text and content for web pages, promotional materials for businesses, product descriptions, and much more!

Examples of my previous work in various different industries and references from my clients are all available upon request.

My work is regularly published in various UK and international newspapers and magazines. My most recent print publication articles are currently live in the latest editions of The Kensington and Chelsea Press (a London newspaper), Pet Tails magazine in America, and InStyle, a UK fashion magazine.

I am competent at writing within SEO guidelines and integrating the appropriate use of keywords at the required density within my work, as well as being experienced in using many different types of social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

If you are looking to hire the lowest priced contractor to complete your job, then I am probably not the person for you. As an established and professional native English writer, I charge a reasonable rate that reflects my experience and competency, and the writing and researching skills that I have built up over the course of my career.

If I have submitted a proposal for your job or...
