Specialist areas

Specialist writer in the health and wellness niche market. "I used Elizabeth’s writing service as part of a content marketing strategy for a client. The subject matter was medical based, meaning the copy had to be highly accurate and informative while at the same time delivering an engaging read. The output far surpassed my expectations and was delivered early. Elizabeth is very easy to deal with and never flinched when changes were required. I can wholeheartedly recommend Elizabeth and will certainly be using her services again." (Managing Director at Velocity Digital LTD) A professional and regularly published journalist, I cover subjects across the board, but my speciality is within the health and wellness niche. Qualified with a degree in Diagnostic Radiology, and in Biological Sciences, as well as practical clinical experience, I can translate complex medical information to an informative and engaging read. To do this succesfully and accurately, it is vital that the writer understands the complex subject matter. I was commissioned by the editor of a national newspaper (weekly magazine section) to write a weekly 1000 word health column, as well as a shorter fitness column. As a keen equestrian, I have written feature articles for all the mainstream glossy equestrian magazines in the UK; Horse & Hound, Horse, Your Horse, Horse & Rider, Scottish Equestrian, Irish Equestrian and England's Equestrian.

Biography

I provide original, high quality, cohesive, engaging and well-researched copy and content. Every word is created by an experienced and published wordsmith who takes great personal pride and care with every project.

Experienced, and with a proven track record, you can be assured that all work will be delivered to the highest standard, and to deadline.

I have been an in-house writer for Scotland's first and groundbreaking independent online newspaper Caledonian Mercury. The Caledonian Mercury is committed to independent, intelligent, in-depth, online journalism. My contributions vary and include; mainstream and holistic health topics, Scottish Heritage, sport, outdoor living, lifestyle and business & technology.

In addition, I have the advantage of being educated to degree level in biological sciences, and having qualified as a radiographer with experience of the clinical environment. This puts me in the unique position of being qualified and able to break down health, medical and technical jargon into engaging copy. This was evident when I was invited to write two columns, as both the weekly fitness and health columnist for The Sunday Herald Magazine.

Recently I have been focussing on copywriting so have fewer recently published articles.
