Most of the work I do is based on a specific brief from a client, but every now and again I get the urge to write about something that strikes a chord with me.
Some of these articles fall into that category, and have been published on various websites and in one or two magazines, whilst others have been specifically requested by a client or a publication.
Here are a few examples – written over the last 10 years or so:
Setting Up as a Freelancer

If you need to write an article, maybe for a trade publication or in in-house newsletter – and really don’t know where to begin, I can help. Either by editing your initial draft or by interviewing you (by phone or in person) and then ‘ghost writing’ the piece as if you wrote it.
