I began my career in journalism as a news reporter, and even today the "scent" for a good story and the thrill of the chase have never left me. Contact me at any time for a quick turn-round of stories, follow-ups and research material in the north west of England including Liverpool, Manchester and Preston.
I have considerable experience in producing the sort of feature material people want to read - whether it's the background to an industrial story, a company profile for a business-to-business magazine or celebrity piece for one of Britain's tabloid newspapers. Again, as always, the keynote of my service is to supply top quality words to the required length and with professional respect for deadlines.
As the editor of several magazines and newsletters, over the years I have gained a solid understanding of what it takes to manage the whole publishing process from start to finish, including the commissioning of material, preparing copy and laying-out of pages, controlling budgets and liaising with designers and printers.
When you require best copy for brochures, web sites, leaflets and advertisements I can supply you with quality words - on time, every time. My training and experience as a journalist have equipped me with the ability to quickly grasp a brief and correctly interpret what is required. I am accustomed to dealing directly with clients at all levels, and agencies can always be assured of my absolute discretion and confidentiality.
My background as a journalist for local, regional and national newspapers means that I can spot a good story when I see one. And because I've also worked as a sub-editor for the big circulation nationals, where literally every word counts, I can come up with punchy press releases which grab attention and, more importantly perhaps, bear all the hallmarks of having been professionally produced.
