Copywriting

copywriting - a quill and ink pot

My copywriting activities have naturally evolved from my editorial work, but, even before my career in journalism, I was being put through my paces by jobs in politics and in theatre.

In those roles I undertook many copywriting duties from press releases to interview features, speeches to annual reports and catalogues.

Since then I have broadened out my skill base with a number of extremely varied commissions including reports on real estate abroad markets abroad, case studies for a charity’s annual report, tone of voice and and a style guide for another charity and web landing page copy for an NGO and for a well-known market research company.

I have also taken on extensive projects for stationery and office supplies companies. This work has enabled me to apply a signature style on a range of specific projects, and carry that language over from catalogues into marketing material and advertising copy. It’s particularly enjoyable to have access to the full range of a company’s copy output, and I look forward to helping your company benefit from my experience.

I have compiled a copywriting skills summary here: Copywriting Profile 2014

Virtual Assistant including complaints service

Modern life is hectic. It’s a well-worn cliche but that doesn’t stop it being more and more true. Textual Healing is here to help. I offer administrative/organisational and creative assistance. This can be anything from transcribing and creating databases to helping write book synopsis, TV and radio treatments and assistance with scripts and storylining.

Our precious time is often sapped by chasing up complaints we’ve made to service providers, from delivery companies to government bodies. Textual Healing’s complaints service draws from the constituency casework I have completed during my time in politics. I’m happy to see through a complaint from start to finish, utilising all communication forms necessary (i.e. letters, emails, telephone calls), so that a realistic and acceptable conclusion is reached.
