About

I am a freelance writer for hire!

I am diligent, trustworthy and will go the extra mile to make sure my clients are satisfied with the work I produce. I am dedicated to building long-term relationships by ensuring that every project I take on is delivered to the client’s exact requirements.

While I specialise in climate change and environmental writing, I have covered an extremely diverse range of subjects in my writing career and am comfortable writing for any business sector.

In 2018, I was named as an Environmental Changemaker, following on from the UN Environment’s Young Champions of the Earth competition.

Experience

I have enjoyed writing for as long as I can remember. I went to junior school in Zimbabwe and won awards for my prose and poetry from The National Institute of Allied Arts. When I was 16, I had my first letter published by the New Statesman magazine.

Since then, I’ve had work published by Africa Geographic, IKSurfMag, Holistic Health Magazine, Holistic Therapist Magazine, the Thomson Reuters Foundation, Two Degrees Journal, The Writing Cooperative, Age UK London and The South African Newspaper. I’m also closely following developments in the climate fiction (cli-fi) genre.

During my career as a Bid Writer, I submitted tenders to a range of clients including multi-national companies and local authorities in the UK. While it was primarily my job to support my managers, I also personally led and won over £900,000 of projects in the space of a few years. In addition, I led the successful bids for places on frameworks that were worth up to £12m and £1.2m respectively. I therefore have a proven track record of crafting work to meet a client’s exact requirements.

Please see my portfolio for examples of my work.

 

Qualifications

My writing experience is backed up by my qualifications, which include:

  • MA in Creative Writing (via Distance Learning) from Teesside University, for which I achieved a Distinction.
  • Completion of the online short course; ‘Getting Started with Creative Writing’ with Oxford University (Department for Continuing Education).
  • Completion of the online short course; ‘An Introduction to Screenwriting’ with the University of East Anglia.

I also hold a First Class Bachelor of Science degree with Honours in Climate Change.

 

Outside of Writing

I currently spend my free time at the gym, attending concerts or catching up on reading. In the future, I plan to spend more time on the water after learning how to kitesurf! I’m also an aspiring author and am working on my first climate change novel.
