Here's a sample of the writing work we've done. I've picked out the widest range to showcase different writing for different types of client - you can easily be one of them.
Press Release for Independent Bikeworks
I love writing press releases; the challenge of taking a new angle on an established process. Here I provided Jim from Independent Bikeworks with a press release that he immediately fired off to all the local media outlets, with excellent traction from readers.
Copywriting for We Are Select
WeareSelect are a Managed Service Provider, providing IT cover to small and medium enterprises and charities. What started as an initial conversation, developed into a blog, and now webpages, marketing plans, and ongoing copy work.
Webpage rewrites and proofreading for Oxfordshire County Council
With a complex website, it’s almost impossible for staff to keep on top of all the changes. I was asked to re-write specific webpages concerning adult social care, and research governance; important and relevant information that needs attention to detail and factual accuracy.
Blogs, editing and proof reading for Just Ride the Bike
For ongoing clients I tend to vary what I can offer. For Just Ride the Bike I have contributed gear and bike reviews, interviews, political commentary and campaigns. I also write selective tweets and Facebook posts. I also take a management role with sub-editing, editing and proofreading roles.
Blog post for Corinium Partnership
Blogs are an important way to create connections with your customers. If you can produce regular blogs, then you’ll get regular traffic. This is a post I wrote for Corinium partnership, who are a construction mitigation consultancy.
Training Courses for St John Ambulance
I conceived, developed and produced a training courses for St. John Ambulance; their ‘Care in the Community’ work. I had to write the entire course, and then test it with adults, that would be running it to cadets up and down the country.
Webpages and blog posts for Cotswold Cogfest
A major regional cycling festival wanted better digital coverage. I re-wrote all the website copy, and ghost wrote a set of blog articles running up to the festival, this covered different aspects of road cycling and of event management.
Academic writing and editing for Geoforum Journal
As a post-doctoral research associate I was the guest editor of a special edition of the journal Geoforum, focused on ethics and morals in geography.
Research reports for Commission for Rural Communities
Research reports are big scale work, and is much more writer than copywriter. For the Commission for Rural Communities to produce a set of reports for a Government body, based on the evidence form a research agency. Long work, but ultimately satisfying, as the law was changed.
90,000 words, all my own work. In-depth research, including two trips to Durban, South Africa. 3 years worth of study and a year of writing.
Published chapters in Books
For example, a chapter on Young Carers, in 'Working with Young People;, published by Russel House. .
CVs and Resumes
Writing resumes for individuals who need support to get their ideas down on paper. I am really strong with resumes and CVs for individuals who want to change jobs. This is more than just following rules, this is about crafting what is in people’s heads, into strong, compelling sentences, that can catch a recruiters eye. The picture is a sample (no personal details included, which is tricky with a CV).
