How can I help?
Before making the foray into copywriting, I spent five years as a columnist and features writer on an award-winning regional newspaper. Before that, I was knuckling down at university, earning a degree in English and Media, and putting my hand up for any kind of writing opportunity that came my way. I even penned a spoof agony aunt-style column with my chum, Michael. It appeared, on a semi-regular basis, in Huddersfield’s imaginatively-titled ‘The Hudds Student’ newspaper., and would go down in history as a piece of writing that probably only my parents (and Michael’s parents) read.
It was a good job my local newspaper later gave me a shot, or I might still be writing stuff that no one really read. While at the paper, I had a bash at everything from learning to play the didgeridoo (harder than it looks!) to dancing arm in arm with the pensioners of a sunny seaside resort at weekly tea dances - and it was all in the name of a great story.
My freelance copywriting work - from lifestyle-focused features to sales-led advertising copy - has appeared everywhere from NME magazine, to COMPANY.co.uk, Cloth magazine, Period Ideas, and QVC's customer beauty brochures.
Let me breathe new life into your copy, too - my rates are competitive and my turnaround time quick.
When I'm not creating copy for magazines, newspapers and websites, I can be found learning to sew by way of my spangly new machine (and trying not to slice my fingers off in the process - those things are lethal!), getting 'My Mary Berry on' in't kitchen, or working on my personalised gifts venture.
But enough about all that; you've probably stumbled on my site because you're looking for a copywriter - not a seamstress, or baker.
