Words written to a brief don’t have to be dry. My journalistic background means that the copy I write is informed, entertaining and tailored to what both you and your readers want.
I’m also an experienced copy-editor and proofreader, so whether it’s a last-minute polish or the development of a title from initial idea to publication, I can help you at all stages of the editorial process.
Below are some selected projects – please get in touch if you would like to see more.
Bettys & Taylors
I have a long-term creative copywriting relationship with Bettys & Taylors, writing blog posts, seasonal catalogues, online product copy, adverts, targeted e-shots, POS materials, product packaging and advertising copy.
Selected past projects:
I provided web and printed content for Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (hcmf//) from 2009 to 2018 with the aim of creating anticipation for the festival each November and sustaining a year-round connection between hcmf// and a wider community of informed and engaged fans, musicians and composers. Drawing upon my specialist music knowledge I wrote short and long features exploring festival events and interviews with the programmed composers and musicians. I also wrote artist profiles for the festival brochure, edited event copy and proofread the text, as well as creating social media posts and playlists to complement the festival programming.
I wrote fresh copy for the production company’s website relaunch, including main page copy, case studies and calls to action.
Liner notes for the CD version of the electroacoustic sound installation by composer Jo Thomas, originally commissioned for the Frequency festival of digital culture, Lincoln.
Programme book copy for Doncaster’s theatre CAST. Interviews with actors and directors and background features for productions including Kes, The Glee Club and annual pantomimes.
