About me

First-class BA graduate with solid writing and editorial skills; I am highly organised and pay excellent attention to detail. I enjoy all sorts of writing, and read an array of fiction and non-fiction. 

My passion for creativity started young. I began by writing poetry and short stories in primary school, and this love of writing continued throughout my education. I later had journalistic feature articles published in the Jersey Evening Post whilst completing my English A-levels.

Since then I have continued to write as a hobby, producing features for my blog and an anthology of poetry and fiction. I have also produced various types of copy during employment, including complex policy documents, advertisements for print, and digital marketing content for business promotion and brand awareness.

I have undertaken many qualifications to gain knowledge in this field, including a Business Law Course at BPP Law School specialising in Media Law, Commercial Law and Intellectual Property. I have also recently completed a Book-Editing course, a Proofreading and Editorial Skills course, and a Digital Marketing Certificate. I have gained a wide range of experience and adaptable skills.  

I have written a number of first-class academic essays during my graduate and post-graduate courses. I am also well versed in drafting legal documentation. I have produced content for both websites and traditional publications, and written articles for my blog.

Whilst studying in London I joined various writing groups and a book club. I began developing my copy-editing skills by proofreading novels for writers in the group and essays for other students, as well as taking on other freelance jobs.

I further developed my copy-editing and proofreading skills professionally by project editing a hard copy legal handbook, and then restructuring and formatting legal content for an online government platform. 

I now work as a Content Editor for a local company, and do Marketing and Media work for a charity in my spare time. I am articulate, work well under pressure, to deadlines, and have a proactive attitude.

I also offer freelance editorial services. Check out my Editorial Services page for details.
