Content Writing Intern / Freelance Writer

Location icon United Kingdom

Hey! Glad you could make it. Fancy reading some of my writing? Before you do, here's a little bit about me:

Earlier this year, I successfully completed a three-month internship in a content writing role. Blogs, e-mails, newsletters; you name it. I wrote, edited, tweeted, and proofread, proofread, proofread a variety of content types in order to drive engagement and support a fantastic marketing team. And I enjoyed every minute.

However, as a result of COVID-19, my progress within the role was sadly cut short. But I'm eager to get back to work. I am searching for exciting freelance opportunities where I can exercise and further my skills as a content writer. With an array of writing experience under my belt and a First-Class Honours in Bachelor of Arts, I am confident I can embody a brand, work to deadlines and tell your story with confidence.

So, please take a look at some of my work! And thank you for reading.
