English copywriter and lecturer in professional writing
Hi there. I’m Nick Parkhouse and I’m a 41 year old British graduate/writer based in Nottingham, UK.
I have eleven years writing experience including articles for newspapers and magazines, press releases, books, blogs and websites. I also lecture in professional writing at the University of Nottingham.
I am also an experienced broadcaster, having made numerous BBC TV and radio appearances over recent years.
Recent experience includes:
1. Writing blogs, website content and articles for one of the Sunday Times Top 250 companies
2. Writing weekly sports previews for two international clients
3. Becoming the BBC's expert on the music of James Bond. Recent appearances on BBC2, BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Radio Scotland
4. Writing weekly property and mortgage news articles for one of the UK's leading property portals
5. Writing website content and news for a world-class engineering company in the aerospace industry
As well as extensive professional writing experience I am also the author of "101 Forgotten Pop Hits of the 80s" - a celebration of 1980s pop music. The research for this involved interviewing over 50 musicians, singers and stars of that decade.
I am married and live with my wife, our two dogs, four cats and, regularly, a smart twelve year old named Madeleine.
