Telling your story

Do you need help writing your story?

We all have stories in us, but working with words is not always as easy as it seems. Even though we use them every day, putting those words down onto the page and knowing how to organise a story can be difficult.

If you'd like to record your memoir, I am available to assist in conducting oral history interviews as well as transcribing them for you.

If you need branded or curated content for your website, blog, or magazine, I am available to undertake content writing services. My areas of knowledge are travel, literature, environment, social commentary, and pop culture.

If your website, newsletter or advertising content needs a makeover, I am available for copywriting services. Make sure your business is effectively telling and selling its story with SEO optimisation integrated with clear and concise copy.

Marketing your story

Getting your story out into the world takes a lot of work and in the digital age many publishers want you to demonstrate an audience for your work.

I provide coaching in social media and social media marketing to help you prepare for your upcoming publication. Including things like revamping your website, developing your online presence, and how to use social media to your advantage, these coaching sessions include a personalised social media strategy and advice on content creation for social media.
