Service Description

My name is Mary and my business is the Writing Owl. It is my mission to provide you with a prompt, professional service that will be good value for your money.

I strongly believe that no matter how much midnight oil needs to be burned or what sacrifices are necessary my customers deadline must always be met without ever compromising on the quality of the completed project.

My relevant credentials include a diploma in Freelance Journalism and Fiction, a higher certificate in Business Studies, a Start your own business course, a Sales Techniques and Marketing course and an Executive Secretarial course.

During the course of my career to date I have had numerous articles, short stories, interviews and other material published. These include interviews with popular writers, articles about show business figures, historical accounts, humorous essays, short fiction and novel writing. I have also worked on Festival Programs and PR and Marketing literature. Samples of my work can be seen in the portfolio section of this page.

My business experience includes 15 years accounts and administration experience, along with the experience of managing my own business. I have frequently supplemented my full-time income with self-employment in areas such as cosmetics, household catalogs, herbal health and diet products.

In 2005 I was short listed for the Dunlavin Arts Festival short-story competition. Following this in 2006 my essay, Athenian Goddesses, won the Writers Week...
