Published Articles To Date

Example article from the Guardian Weekend

I write for Gabriel Ash; plus I look after Connect Group's Community Link-Up blog which documents their corporate fundraising and volunteering activities. I also look after West Green House Gardens' online presence (website, newsletter and social media).

I've also contributed to national newspapers, lifestyle and specialist magazines, and lots of websites and blogs. 

Here's a list of my work to date. Just like my blog, the range of subjects I'm commissioned to write about is broad.
