Areas of specialisation:

Feature-writing, particularly finding new angles of interest for the reader  a focus on health and well being, specialised medical articles and features

Newsletters, brochures and content design and all website copy


The ability to write in different styles:  Engaging the reader with a more informative and conversational style; a formal business style; as well as slightly irreverent, humorous accounts of events, products and features. This versatility enables me to write from entry level to specialised articles for publications such as the Medical Chronicle and other specialist trade publications.
