"Hi. I'm Clare.
My favourite things to write about are food, drink, farming and rural living."
I'm a versatile freelance content writer and features editor for social media, web and print.
I produce engaging, amusing, properly researched copy in just the right style and tone for your publication, website, social media or brand.
I am available for short or long-term contracts, topical newsletters, reactive and relevant web content and freelance copy writing.
HOW I WORK
My work is all about your requirements, so we'll start with what suits you. That might be a one-off editing project, a day as a copywriter here and there or an ongoing features writing contract. Whichever you choose, I'm quick, deadline-focussed and flexible. I can take a brief via email, over the phone, via skype, Teams, Zoom or in person (if you're nearby) and I'll always supply a sample so we're both sure you'll get what you want. Approach, style and tone of voice will be tailored to your audience. The price we agree will include all research, amendments, formatting and delivery, so there'll be no hidden surprises.
How can I help you?
I fully research all commissions to ensure complete accuracy.
