A bit about me

I’m a tea-drinking writer from Hertfordshire, and winner (mostly) of the daily battle against some pretty independently-minded hair.

74 - CY0A4643-Edit

As well as the unruly hair I have a degree from the University of Durham (where I was awarded a first in my written dissertation – I’m still proud), and fifteen years’ professional writing experience across the business, public and charity sectors.

These days I work freelance as a professional copywriter, and I genuinely love my job.

I have written for organisations including the National Trust, Hertfordshire Community Foundation, INNOluxe, Mind, Samaritans, A Confident Start, Hertfordshire Resilience, Manwood James, Hertford Arts and others. My writing includes:

  • internal staff communications
  • communications between professionals from different organisations (especially public and health sectors)
  • persuasive copy for the public – online, blogs and print
  • formal documents, Annual Reports, case studies, policies, plans and white papers
  • guidebooks, tourist leaflets, and text for exhibitions
  • press releases
  • voluntary sector recruitment campaigns

When I’m not working I’m often found tap-dancing, enthusiastically massacring my latest craft hobby or tying myself in knots in front of a yoga video.

Alternatively, take a look at my blog, see what my clients say, or check me out on LinkedIn (where you’ll find me as Megan Douglas).
