Profile

Mature graduate 2014 from UWE. BA Hons 1st class English language and literature.

I have an alter-ego as Born again Swindonian with which I blog about Swindon. The has amassed almost 47,000 hits to date (March 2015).
It was certainly instrumental in helping me attain a 1st class degree. I undertook a travel writing module in my 3rd year. As contributions to the coursework portfolio, I wrote a guide-book entry about Swindon's Magic Roundabout and a travelogue based around the West Swindon sculpture trail. I achieved a 1st for that particular coursework portfolio and a 1st overall for that module.

While at university began doing digital copywriting writing pages for the travel industry. Some of the work was for an airport transfer company and some of it involved writing pages at country, resort or airport level for different travel websites. It was that work, combined with the blog writing and travel writing at university that gave me the idea of setting up AA Editorial Services after graduation.

Since I seriously began to get the business established (Sept 2015) I've been gaining a variety of experience with copywriting and proofreading jobs.

One of the first jobs I had was editing/rewriting copy on a website selling medical practice software.The website was old and the copy on it was outdated so I rewrote it, putting it into plain English and removing the superfluous, tautologous sections of text. I also worked with a Swindon independent food outlet owner to produce a promotional/informative brief for his new outlet and food fact cards of health benefits.

Since then I've been employed by web developers who have outsourced to me to write copy for whom they've been building a web site so enabling them to offer a complete service. I've also worked directly to the customer.
