For the last six years I've specialised in copywriting and ... moremarketing for the travel industry. I've won Malta Travel Writer of the Year twice, I create and manage content for large travel businesses, and have worked with over 60 clients within the travel niche. I write travel guides, brochures, press releases and marketing content for luxury travel agents (in particular see http://www.zicasso.com). I also create and manage content for a variety of travel websites, including large social media-focused sites and SEO specialists. I have particular specialisms in luxury travel, travel blogs, and African travel. Hailing from the UK, I've spent the last years around the world before settling in Cape Town. Creative, funny, practical, quirky; I can delve into a variety of styles dependent on the project, but I understand that the best writing effectively engages the audience, and subtly delivers the underpinning message of the client. I produce work with both UK and US English. I also have extensive experience in wordpress and HTML, and understand the importance of SEO to all online work. Throughout my work I subtly soft sell the destination or travel product. Rather than bombard the reader with superlatives and cliches, I allow the reader to build their own impressions and convince themselves that a product or destination is amazing. I take huge pride in my work and ability to achieve this. I've created promotional videos for national tourism boards and large international clients like the South Africa Youth Travel Confederation, Travlaw, and the LAL group. My writing and video production has evolved into a small agency specialising in creative content for the travel industry.
