Business Description

My business is divided into two parts: after a long career on the staff of regional daily newspapers and magazines as a reporter, feature writer and features editor, I'm now working as a freelance writing features for various regional media including "Lancashire" magazine, national magazine "Fifty Plus" magazine, national newspapers like the Daily Express and women's magazines.

The other part of my business is helping companies improve their media profile by finding the right angles to appeal to specific areas of the media, writing press releases in the format the media wants and distributing them to a wide range of current media contacts.

Being objective about your business and spotting the kind of genuine news and feature angles the media needs is difficult for most business people. My job is applying the skills honed over a thousand news stories and features to your company and helping you achieve the coverage in the media of your choice.

I also run media workshops and tailor-made business writing sessions to help you and your employees communicate your ideas, services and products clearly to the wider public and other businesses. I am also skilled in website writing and crafting keywords into cogent copy that reads well.

My Recommendations

Angela has been invaluable to our company. Our communications and PR profile has improved significantly since our business relationship with her began. Not only does her work prove her worth but the time and dedication she invests in the younger members of our team does not go unnoticed. An asset by any measure.

from Chris Houghton

I can't thank you enough for all your help and success with my recent PR activities. Not only did you write an excellent features, your constant follow-up with journalists has been remarkable. I have already received enquiries from the article. Result! I particularly like the fact that you will continue to do work for me on an ad-hoc basis as and when required. As a small business this suits me down to the ground, rather than having to pay a retainer that's not required. I have no hesitation in recommending you, and indeed have recommended you, to anyone looking to boost the media profile of their business. Thank you.
