Do you need a freelance writer?
My first ever job was as a journalist on the South Manchester Reporter. I spent most of the 1990s writing news stories and music features. These days, I'm a journalist for Electronic Sound magazine, including a double-page column about everything from dancing sperm whales to robotic armageddon.
I write reviews and interviews, not all necessarily about music. I'd like to write for you. Contact details on my About page.
I also write short stories. As well as self-publishing some wonderful and disturbing books, here is a heavily edited list of people who have been nice enough to publish me...
