Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $48

Writing comes naturally to me. I love the written word and the power it can have to influence opinions and inform debate.

My son was born in 2008 and my daughter followed early in 2010. Having children has given me a new focus to carve a career out of work I can do around them rather than being beholden to office hours.

I believe in giving 100 per cent commitment to everything I do. I will only bid for work that I believe I can complete to a high standard within the client's time scales.

Service Description

I have worked on a variety of writing and PR projects throughout my career. My main area of expertise is press release writing. I have a great deal of experience in taking complex issues and making them accessible to the public. I also have a keen news sense and am able to find a public interest angle to most issues.

I have written for the web, magazines and newsletters. I am able to adapt my writing style to suit the audience and the subject matter.

I am very interested in new media and social networking. It's the media of the future.

The subject areas I have had most involvement in are environment, nutrition, interiors, bathroom technology and pregnancy and childcare.

I will work with clients to make sure you are absolutely happy with the work you receive from me. I'm not put off by constructive criticism. It's an opportunity to look at something again and make it right.

I don't believe in writing for the sake of it so will keep my profile brief.
