As an experienced journalist, I’ll write well-researched, entertaining content for your magazine or newspaper.

Whether digital or print, I’ll craft quality articles that appeal to your readers and hold their attention.

I’m a skilled interviewer and can cover a range of subjects, including parenting, nostalgia, business, property, fashion and beauty.

I can also help if you’re looking for a freelancer to provide engaging and honest reviews for your publication. I write reviews for sectors ranging from travel, family days out and theatre, to books, beauty products, and food and drink.

“I worked with Colette for nearly a decade, and was her direct line manager for around two years. An award-nominated journalist, Colette is a skilled and thorough writer. She is a safe, experienced pair of hands and can be relied upon for her accuracy and dedication to her work. Colette is professional at all times, polite, patient and has a wonderful way of dealing with even the trickiest of interviewees.”

Why choose me?

I worked as a journalist at local and regional newspapers across the UK for 18 years, before going freelance. I started out as a newspaper reporter, later moving into features and editing.

As well as my skills at research, interviewing and writing, I can help your magazine or newspaper with sub-editing and proofreading. It could be that you already have a team of staff but need support at busy times. Or perhaps you’re looking to expand your network of freelance journalists.
