Freelance Journalist

Need a professional freelance writer to write a well-researched, well-structured and interesting story? I can help.

I have more than 20 years’ experience working in the media, public relations and communication sectors. I’ve been a journalist and content producer with The Straits Times (Singapore Press Holdings). Writing good stories is what I do.

I know how to:

  • build up and structure a story
  • find an interesting angle
  • engage readers & draw them into the story
  • articulate an idea
  • present a balanced view
  • interview people
  • pick out the best quotes to use
  • write to a specific word count
  • use an appropriate writing style for the publication and target audience.

International experience

Having worked and lived in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Europe and the US, I can write stories in varieties of English for Australian, US, European, Asian or international markets.

Feature writer

I’d be thrilled to research and write your articles, editorials and feature stories.

Whether you need a professionally written article to submit to a magazine as an advertorial or editorial, or want to commission a feature story for a newspaper, magazine or other publication, I can write it for you.

Over the years, I have had stories and articles that I wrote published in a variety of newspapers and magazines in a number of countries.

Travel stories and international and/or cultural issues are among the topics that I particularly love writing about. But I have written about a huge range of topics and you can commission me to write about absolutely any subject for any type of publication.

If you let me know what the topic is, what the story should cover, the word count, target market and which newspaper or magazine it will be published in, I’ll consider what else is needed and we’ll go from there.
