On Sabbatical.... But Will Consider Offers

Hi! Thanks for checking out my profile. I’m a full-time content-writer, so you can be sure that I will handle your project seriously and to the best of my ability. I do commercial writing of almost any description, but am at my best writing articles and blogs. My work experience as a business partner and manager has given me a good background in business, particularly HR and marketing, and my life experiences and love of reading have exposed me to much more. I've worked as a writer in a wide range of niches, and could probably provide an example of my previous work in yours. Looking for a press release or an advertorial? Magazine articles? General website copy? As long as you can explain your business to me, or give me a topic that can be researched, I can probably help. My average blog-writing output per hour is around 800 words including research. However, there are times when it's 1,000 words or as little as 500 words depending on the complexity of the task.

Portfolio Items

A history of shoes
Unfortunately, I can only upload portfolio items as jpgs, so this one comes in two parts. Wondering why my profile is so slender? I'm a ghost writer!

I've been lucky to work with Andrea for over 2 years now and I gotta say that she's a great content writer and even a better person. She's not one of those writers that just fluff around, don't write a word more than you paid for and miss deadlines. She's always on time, makes sure that the articles add value and what's more she almost always writes more than she's asked to just to make sure that the article is as complex as possible!

Experience

Senior Writer

My editor posted the following profile on the company's wesite: "Andrea has a long history of writing including bespoke projects for scientific websites and journals ...Today she heads our writing team, tackling a variety of different industries with confidence and aplomb. The breadth of her knowledge is matched only by the quality of her work and we are blessed to have her as part of our publishing family. "

Talk show host

Eden FM (Radio station)
Jul 2013 - Aug 2014 (1 year, 1 month)
This was a part time job, and I really enjoyed it. I know talking isn't the same as writing, but I did have to prepare basic scripts. Unfortunately the demands of winding up my other job, which included developing a new business strategy, became too great, and I could no longer broadcast 3 mornings a week.

Manager: sales and marketing

New Plant Nursery
Sep 2002 - Feb 2014 (11 years, 5 months)
It started as a great job. Then I became a business partner, and I discovered something: I can write! Letters, job descriptions, policies, articles, press releases, newsletters, emails to difficult clients, work systems. Hey! I can even write a short story or two, but I did that in my own time. These days, I prefer the quiet life of the freelance writer.
