Thanks for visiting. I’m a writer and communications consultant working mostly in the third and not-for-profit sector. My recent clients includes The Open University for which I interviewed and wrote up student testimonials, the relationship charity Relate where I used to be a counsellor and The Open College Network (London). This work means a very great deal to me as I was a late developer myself, both educationally and in my relationships! (see all about me).
I also recently worked for the relationship charity OnePlusOne in particular helping to run a digital campaign to direct traffic to their free online service for separating parents: splittingup-putkidsfirst.org.uk I also write articles for the Arts and Humanities Research Council, Warwick University and I’ve been a media strategist and adviser for the NHS. I’m usually very busy I am always interested in new business so if you like what you see here and think I can help you with some writing you need doing, do please get in touch.
In addition to my “comms” work I’ve been a copywriter for Virgin Trains, Families at Work, QUIT – the charity that helps people stop smoking – Stoke on Trent City Council, Staffordshire University and Staffordshire LINk – now called Healthwatch.
Samples of my previous work are posted on my work tab but more recent clips are now on my blog, see below. I’m always keen to discuss new writing opportunities of any kind.
Be a journalist
For more than 30 years I worked in journalism and I know journalists’ websites are often visited by people keen to break into the industry. So I’ve put a bit about this under my FAQs and there are also some helpful websites listed in the links I like tab. I hope it’s useful. But do please be aware that it’s a dying industry right now, in a state of flux or transition depending upon your point of view.
If you wish to contact me directly I’m firstname.lastname@example.org I’m also on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter for which which there are buttons (see right). I accept all requests to join networks and I usually follow back on Twitter.
Thanks for stopping by.
