Whether you need an expert eye to proofread your work, or want original written content worded perfectly to suit your brand or approach, I can provide text that will bring out the best of what you have to offer.
I have over ten years’ experience writing for a wide variety of fields including commercial business, academia, the arts and government sectors. I hold three honours degrees including a PhD (passed without corrections).
I am available for commission, and can write short or long form pieces on any area of my expertise (outlined below).
If you need to gather and synthesise data, or design an effective way of managing your own research, get in touch. I have worked as a researcher for the University of Portsmouth and the University of Chichester over the last seven years. I can find you the relevant information and content you need quickly and efficiently, and package this in a clearly accessible way.
If you need engaging copywriting for your website or social media, look no further. I have been curating and providing content for personal and business sites and social media accounts for over five years.
I have expertise in the following areas:
Monster Theory (What are monsters? Why do they matter? What do they tell us about societies throughout time, or even about modern anxieties?)
Spatial Theories (How do spaces & environments affect us emotionally? How can we use space to tell stories?)
Occupational folklore (I specialise in British/American mining, sailing and railway folklore from the nineteenth century)
The concept of ‘othering’ (Exploring the concept and realities of ‘us’ versus ‘them’ mentalities including awareness of the demonisation of minority and marginalised groups in society.)
Nineteenth Century British History (My PhD examined themes of guilt and culpability in journalism and literature that demonized working-class people during the long nineteenth century).
Other areas of expertise include:
- Western attitudes towards religion, magic, the occult
- The history of belief in the devil
- The history of belief in fairies
- Ghostlore and hauntings
- The Gothic/weird/uncanny
- Creativity and the imagination
- Synaesthesia (personal experience, non-clinical)
This list is by no means exhaustive, so get in touch if you have a project in mind. I have a sliding pay scale depending on what services you need and what your current situation is. My ethos is to focus on projects which are fulfilling and ethical, and which will lead to the most promising outcomes for all. I’ll be happy to chat through initial ideas before asking for a payment commitment, so feel free to contact me via the details below and see if my work would be a good fit for you and your business.
