My Services and Rates

It doesn’t matter whether the job concerns your personal life or your business/club, whether it’s large or small, or whether it’s a one-off or a regular job – I’d love to hear from you. All enquiries are welcome.

Writing and photography

I write news, features and blog posts for newspapers, magazines, newsletters and websites. These are usually accompanied by my own photographs. Most of my articles relate to travel, tourism, hospitality, leisure, entertainment or lifestyle. I am also currently working on a book.

Press releases

Want to see your news in the media but don’t know where to start? I can write a press release for you and make sure it’s sent to all the relevant newspapers, magazines, websites and broadcasters. I can also take high quality photographs to go with it, which will increase its chance of getting used.

Proofreading and editing

Perhaps you’ve written something yourself but it needs a bit of polishing. Spelling and grammar mistakes can make you look unprofessional, incompetent or lazy – and of course you don’t want that. I can check your document, whether it’s an information board, user guide, event programme, menu or private letter, and make sure that it portrays you, your organisation and your message in the best possible way.

Shorthand

In order to qualify as a journalist, I had to pass a shorthand exam proving I could write at a rate of 100 words per minute. Do you need someone to take notes at your meeting, or would you like to learn shorthand yourself? I can help.

My rates

Every job is unique and the fee takes into account a number of factors such as word count, complexity and time required for research and writing. If you contact me with details of the job, including the deadline, I will provide you with a quote within 24 hours.
