Hi there! I’m Penny, a freelance writer and editor specialising in health, wellbeing, travel and women’s lifestyle.
I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember, and a professional journo for more than a decade. I’ve reported for a daily newspaper, edited a knitting magazine, interviewed Kate Moss for Cosmopolitan, rubbed shoulders with small-screen royalty for TV Week and tested just about every workout in the book as deputy editor of Women’s Fitness magazine.
Yep, it’s been a wild ride – and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Here’s why: all those CWA meetings as a young cadet, all those articles on the transformative power of knitting, and every single interview with celebs both awkward and charming have made me the creative and confident journalist I am today.
I’m as comfortable chatting to Mossy about red lipstick as I am a naturopath about kombucha – telling compelling stories and sharing knowledge is what makes me tick. I’m also an absolute champ at spotting typos, refreshing tired copy, inventing engaging headlines, writing unique online content and working out where apostrophes should go. When I’m not writing features for the publishing industry’s best and brightest, I’m sharing my insider know-how with big and small businesses. So, if you struggle to make words flow on the page, if you need fresh content for your website but can’t find the time, or if you just need an eagle eye to fine-tune your eBook, blogs, newsletter or landing page, I’ll help you get it right.
The bottom line? If you’re looking for a writing gun, I’m your girl.
Go on, let’s create something amazing.
