Service Description

My speciality is travel writing. I've won awards for it, have a weekly newspaper column about it, write brochures and marketing copy for tourism boards, and rewritten numerous travel websites.

Throughout my work I subtly soft sell the destination or travel product. Rather than bombard the reader with superlatives and cliches, I allow the reader to build their own impressions and convince themselves that a product or destination is amazing. I take huge pride in my work and ability to achieve this.

Other specialist subjects are sport and music writing. I am the author of "Sports Source" a guide to developing sport in the UK, and spent two years as editor of a large UK clubbing website. Again, I look to soft sell; promoting a product or ideal through subtle imagery and identifying with the audience.

I also have extensive experience in wordpress and HTML5, and understand the importance of SEO to all online work.
