Here are links to features and reviews I have written for the northings. com website which celebrates the arts in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland for Hi-Arts. I really enjoy attending most arts and literature events and writing reviews for websites and newspapers (just don’t send me to the ballet).
I am a freelance writer working for businesses and as a journalist. I was editor of the award-winning Orkney Today newspaper – Highlands and Islands Newspaper of the Year, awarded in 2010. With 20 years experience in the newspaper industry in England and Scotland, I have done all editorial jobs, including editing two papers and training journalists.
Now I write regularly for the national and regional press, magazines and for several websites. For features I am particularly interested in food, the arts, travel, history, culture and Orkney.
I am also available to get messages out there for businesses through press releases, writing web content, media training and any other writing such as blogs, leaflets and reports.
Commissions are welcome. Please get in contact through the email link here.
I am a student too; studying for a Masters in Orkney and Shetland Studies through the Centre for Nordic Studies in Kirkwall (expected summer 2011).
This blog aims to showcase my work and link to other interesting blogs and forums.
