It’s not just fairy dust! To get your message across to the people you want to reach – that is, your audience – you have to know how to say what you mean.
As a freelance copywriter and editor, blogger, communications consultant, critic, journalist and poet, I know that “all the fun’s in how you say a thing.” I’ve honed my skills over many years of writing for different purposes and different clients. I’m well-versed in how to use words in different ways, for different purposes, to achieve different goals.
I can write formal business prose, engaging consumer copy or funny stories. I can produce your annual report, advertorial or service user magazine. I can write SEO copy, press releases, or a communications strategy.
In addition to writing, I offer mentoring, advice, and social networking assistance. I can help you get started on Twitter or Facebook, or help you reach more readers with your blog. I can ghost-write your blog.
I’m available for contract work or one-off jobs.
My reviews and critical essays appear in the UK and the United States.
My poetry collection, Me and the Dead, is published by Salt Publishing.
My literary blog, Baroque in Hackney, is regularly cited as one of the top book blogs and appears in Mediadisk.
I am a full member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations and the National Union of Journalists.
I live in Stoke Newington, London, and have three children.
