As a copywriter and editor, I’ve worked for a variety of agencies, websites, businesses and brands, covering topics from travel, luxury, health and food to banking, trading, third-sector enterprises, property and transport.
I’ve carved a niche using my journalism experience to work as a PR copywriter, editor and consultant, often plugging a gap in between hires at agencies or helping out with big projects.
I also ghostwrite thought-leadership articles and blogs for clients who then place them in the national or industry press, including the Guardian, Huffington Post and Pioneers Post. Business leaders often find that they either don’t have the time or the skills to write articles themselves, but want a presence as an industry authority in the media. I can bridge that gap by writing journalistically led opinion pieces that fit the style of the publication in question.
PR copywriting: I have produced copy including press releases, sample articles, biographies, trend reports, boilerplates and awards entries for PR agencies and in-house teams including Glenmorangie and Ardbeg (LVMH), W Communications, M&C Saatchi PR, Eightyfour, LX PR, the Lifestyle Agency (retained on a consultancy basis), Augur and Bite Global. I have also teamed up with Ula McCarthy PR on a bar/restaurant relaunch.
When things get busy, PR agencies find it really useful to be able outsource writing work to someone fast and reliable – or even just sending written work to me to edit or polish.
