I produce original writing for online and print publications; I also adapt and edit existing material to create accessible and engaging literature for a wide range of audiences.
A University of Warwick Graduate with a BA Hons in English and American Literature, I've worked as a freelance writer and editor in a number of different industries (international development, recruitment, charitable sector, family / lifestyle, and education) for fourteen years.
I enjoy writing a wide range of copy, for a wide range of clients – recent work includes web copy for businesses including high-spec photographic equipment, tech solutions, hospitality services and companies selling food & drink, homeware, and lifestyle products.
My areas of speciality are in synthesis and summary writing for a range of audiences, including the University of Birmingham’s International Development Department, and a range of consultancies within the development arena. I am confident engaging in academic research, creating clear online and print summaries for policymakers and NGOs, including non-native English speakers.
I am an experienced bid writer, working with charities and development agencies to write bids and proposals for both small awards and multi-million pound projects. Recent bid work includes being contributing writer and lead editor on a £63m international bid.
I’ve written a range of summaries of social science and behavioural / lifestyle books for a charitable organisation to use as wider reading for parenting and marriage courses, and I can find an engaging and approachable voice for your business or organisation.
I have worked with primary and secondary schools, nurseries and academies to support them with advertising, recruitment, marketing, fundraising, internal publications, programmes, handbooks and training literature.
I also lecture in degree level academic writing, at Nexus Institute of Creative Arts in Coventry.
Summarising lengthy material or complex ideas, expressing them with clarity and brevity – whatever you need to say, I can work with you to communicate, to influence, and to explain.
