A hockey writer's tale
My position within the world of sport is firmly rooted in hockey. I am editor of the bi-monthly global hockey magazine, Planet Hockey; I write for the International Hockey Federation, the Pan-American Hockey Federation and England Hockey. I have also started regularly contributing to the newest title on the newspaper stand The Hockey Paper.
Away from the hockey pitch, I have an absolute enthusiasm and passion for local businesses who are working hard to be the best they can. I provide a writing service for those businesses who know they need to market themselves but are too busy being amazing at what they do. Food producers, agricultural services, boutique accommodation, IT specialists, health centres – all doing amazing things, all deserve their story to be told.
The quality of writing that I hope to bring to any writing assignment is matched by the enthusiasm I have for each and every topic. For me, everyone’s story deserves to be told in the most compelling and animated way. I like to think my three main qualities are: high quality writing, always hitting deadlines and my ability to understand and get across every client's point of view.
I moved back to Norfolk three years ago and since then I have thrown myself into local life. I write a column for the local paper The Lynn News; my articles appear frequently in Suffolk/Norfolk Life, KL Magazine and Norfolk On My Mind; and I also run a stall at Creake Abbey Farmers Market, selling local charcuterie.
Keeping up to date with social media is something that companies are realising they must do, but often lack the resources – time or specialist knowledge – to do effectively. As a writer, I am adept at getting your message out into public eye, whether through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or blogs from your own website.
My ability to make the words tell the story is a powerful tool and one that many local businesses are already using. Sparkling copy, a nose for what makes a good story and an in-depth knowledge of how to get the news out and about are all areas that I can work with businesses to develop.
