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, 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 County Council, Mind, Samaritans, A Confident Start, Hertfordshire Resilience, Families First, 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

Take a look at some of my work in my portfolio and on my blog, and see what my clients say. You can also find me on LinkedIn as Megan Douglas.

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.
