It’s not just about writing great copy for your newspaper or magazine readers; it’s about sniffing out a good story, asking pertinent questions, and finding the angle that will grab their attention.

I’ve written everything from 50 word reviews on the latest lipsticks to 2,500 word in-depth profiles on celebrities and extraordinary people who have fascinating stories to tell.

On the “hard news” side, I have produced top-notch news stories and in-depth analyses on a wide range of subjects, including business, environment and health.

Travel reviews have been published in Trinity Mirror regional newspapers across the country and I spent years as children’s book editor, recommending the very best literature for teens right down to cute little picture books for toddlers.

I also enjoyed a couple of years as The Birmingham Post’s property writer – sourcing salivating-inducing homes to bring to the readers’ attention.

I’ve also been commissioned to write business features for Insider West Midlands, one of the country’s leading B2B titles.
