Copywriting and media relations

Copywriting, content creation, press releases and media relations

I can work with you to create any written material you need – for example:

  • Advertising/advertorial copy
  • Brochures, catalogues, posters and leaflets
  • CVs and personal statements 
  • Newsletters and surveys
  • Website copy – page contents, ‘About Me’/bio information, articles and blog posts

You can hire me to work in-house on an ongoing, short-term, or ad hoc basis; or I can provide all content and consultation remotely. We can even do a little bit of both – it all depends on what works for you. 

If you need a press release written about your project, event or organisation, I can create a story that demands to be read and shared, and bring it directly to the right journalists and editors for you. 

Why choose Quill Inc?

With nearly ten years of magazine and newspaper journalism under my belt, I know what editors are looking for, whether it’s from the press release in their inbox, or the copy for an article.

My research, interview and writing skills, combined with the variety of topics I have turned my ‘quill’ to over the years, make Quill Inc the ideal choice for top-quality written content. 

Between 2011 and 2013 I worked with a local band called Whanau, responsible for the group’s press information, media relations and online content. I created an online press pack of band information, photography and press releases and achieved press coverage for a number of gigs and album launches in local newspapers.

I’ve also assisted Belfast children’s author AGR Moore in proofing press releases and publishers’ letters, and editing some of his work, including his first novel The Unseen Chronicles of Amelia Black, and his popular short story A Gurumapa in The Wood.

In 2014 I worked for Firefly, creating a survey to gather customer data for case studies, and writing the content of the accompanying email.

So what now?

If you would like me to work with you, contact me to arrange a free consultation and quote. I put my interview skills to good use, spending time with you to find out all about you, your organisation or project and exactly what you need to achieve. If it’s a one-off project, we’ll agree a flat fee to include all the work needed to get the content just right.

The fee will include any tweaks and revisions that might be needed, plus any research and legwork I have to do. Unless there are significant changes or additions to the project along the way, there’ll be no additional charges. Any additional fees will always be agreed with you in writing before I start the work.

If you’d like me to work for you on a continuing/retainer basis, we’ll either agree an hourly rate or a monthly payment, whichever is most appropriate and affordable for you.
