Skills


Writing and Editing

I currently work on creating content for a range of industries online. I write and edit unique content daily. I know best how to use TOV and site structure to guide a user journey, attract and entertain visitors and draw them towards engaging with a site's purpose.

Proofreading

From my daily role as a copywriter and my experience as a Teacher, I am an expert proofreader. I can quickly and efficiently check over writing for grammar, tone or style mistakes.

SEO

Working with client's websites everyday, SEO is a very important aspect. I can structure content to best benefit SEO, conduct keyword research and create unique content to make pieces stand out amongst the ranks.

Creative Writing

Although most of my writing is creative, writing fiction in particular is where I feel my creative side comes out best. I often write fictional pieces in my spare time and completed a creative dissertation for my English degree, writing my first short novel of 12,000 words.

Research

Research is an important part of my job as a writer. When working with a range of clients it's essential I research my content properly as to keep my writing factual and unique.

Communication

From my time as a Teacher I have learnt how to communicate with people of all ages and how to engage different audiences. I am confident and comfortable in giving and recieving feedback and working closely with clients and collegues.
