Overview

I write for women's magazines, newspapers and websites producing concise copy that is interesting, relevant and informative. My portfolio includes features, news pages (trends and styles), consumer news (testing products) and food copy but I'm a confident, versatile writer who can cover a wide range of topics.

Service Description

Let me know what you want—blogging, articles, newsletters, eBooks, content writing, brochures or editing and I'll produce word-perfect work to complement your publication or website. I'm also happy to generate ideas to kick-start a project.

I'm used to working to tight deadlines, liaising with PRs and contributing creative ideas to projects. I'll also edit copy for you (I've worked in-house as a deputy sub editor) to ensure a professional finish.

I'm also passionate about creative writing and have recently completed an early digital version of my first book (contemporary women's fiction), which is around 80,000 words. Should you require ghost-writing services, I'd be happy to take on the project.

Some of the titles I've worked on include Woman&Home, Ideal Home; InStyle; Now; Woman; Practical Parenting; Blush; Sunday Mirror; In The Know; Sky Magazine (celebrity and movie news); Daily Mail; and almost three years on SHE Magazine writing news pages, homes and interior trends and foodie stuff.
