I'm available for writing and editing assignments, on a range of subjects. I've covered most topics – travel, health, tech, food, art, design, psychology – and if I don't know about it, I'll go and find out.
I can help with your website, content strategy, branding, marketing and social media. I am also taking on new PR clients, mainly in the travel sector. Get in touch if you'd like to hear more.
Workshops and Coaching
I can deliver talks and workshops on a range of topics. You can also book me for one-to-one coaching and consultancy sessions. I'm a member of the Royal Television Society.
I write a blog called What Katie Did Now
I'm creating a series of online courses on various aspects of journalism and writing. Please check in soon for an update, or drop me an email to be notified when they go live.
Photography is one of my passions and I can include images on any assignment. Just ask me when you commission me.
Sub-editors (or copy-editors, as we're sometimes called) are a bit like hairdressers. It doesn't matter what mess we're presented with, we'll make it look good. A sub-editor comes at an article or piece of text with a fresh pair of eyes. They do all the obvious things, like check spelling, grammar and punctuation, but they also rewrite clunky sentences, rejig paragraphs as necessary, check all the facts are present and correct, then fit the article to the page using special software, so it looks all pretty. Then they write a killer headline and standfirst, whip up some snappy picture captions, proof-read what they've done and, finally, the article is ready to print.
