After sadly loosing my role as an editorial assistant due to the current ongoing health crisis, I am seeking new opportunities. I have considerable experience in producing clear, considered content within tight editorial deadlines for print and online media. Having worked across four titles, I am able to quickly adapt my writing style and simultaneously produce and optimise content for different platforms. I would be very grateful to hear from anyone with opportunities that may suit my experience. Please send me a message and I can share my CV and portfolio of work.
