Copywriter, columnist, and blogger – for content with character.

Engage your customers, your readers, or your audience.

Times when you might need a writer

  1. You have no content. Nowt. A few ideas, maybe, but that’s about it.
  2. You have a deadline to meet and a space to fill. And the clock is ticking…
  3. What you’ve written is okay, but it could be improved. You’re just not sure how.
  4. You want to revitalise your brand with a fresh approach and maybe a little humour.
  5. People need to know how great your product or service is, but words aren’t your thing. I get it; I feel the same way about banking. (Unless banking is your business, in which case I lovebanking…)

Where I come in.

I’m a columnist, copywriter and blogger. I can create a range of written content (credited or ghostwriten) for a variety of media and needs. I produce business writing, articles and features, branding slogans, speeches and eye-catching copy that generates a buzz. I can even write gags for you, or ‘punch up’ presentation material to turn it from dry into wry.

I also provide editing and proofreading on request.

My main subject areas are: Business; Lifestyle and Human Interest; Green Living; Relationships; and the Arts. However, I’m always happy to look at a brief.
