Service Description

As a journalist with over a decade of experience writing news stories for both print and online publications, I can provide concise and accurate copy, conduct in-depth research and interviews, and deliver publication-ready articles to strict deadlines. Through my feature writing experience I have also gained the skills to write in-depth, informative long-form articles. As a result, I can provide clients with high quality, long or shortform articles and features to suit their needs.

As a freelance writer, I have a diverse portfolio of topics which shows my adaptability and flexibility to turn my writing skills to most subject matter. I have written current affairs articles for German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle's English online news service, music and culture features for the Economist magazine and architecture pieces for the New York Times, among others. I also have experience writing corporate literature and public relations material for governmental organisations such as the European Commission. This experience allows me to quickly grasp the intergal parts of most subject matters, meaning that clients can approach me for writing assignments on a range of topics with confidence.

As an experienced English native-speaking editor and proof-reader, I have the skills to shorten, adapt, re-write and correct texts. I have worked as an editor in an online news department, editing texts for accuracy, length, spelling and grammar, and house style. As an external...
