I have been a Freelance Journalist for 12 years, I have an Associate Degree in Media, Communication and Production Studies.
During my media course, which took place from 1996 to 1998 I did work placements at the Derry Journal Newspaper, Londonderry Sentinel Newspaper and The Fingerpost Magazine all situated in Londonderry Northern Ireland. In 2001, I went to Ontario Canada for a two month Journalism internship at The Waterloo Chronicle Newspaper in Ontario, Canada. Whilst there I wrote and had published a terrorism column, a humor column, human interest stories and theatre reviews for the newspaper which was circulated to residents of Kitchener and Waterloo. I also learned digital photography during this internship.
From 2002 I have been writing freelance for magazines and newspapers both on and offline in the US and Canada mostly. My subject expertise in the last few years has been travel mainly as the last five years I have spent living, working and having extended holidays in Canada, United States, Hong Kong and Egypt, as well as many European capital cities.
I have had city guides published online at www.exinthecity.com. Which is an online community and information site for divorced woman. As well as having a Backpacking Destination Guide of Northern Ireland published at www.journeybeyondtravel.com, which is an online community and forum for the PDF magazine of the same name. In the past, I have also written book reviews and game reviews for online websites. I am an excellent researcher and can pick up new things very quickly.
You will find attached to this letter sample clippings of current articles I have had published at the sites above. I have other previously published articles from newspapers and magazines offline, if you would care to see them I can send a copy of them by e-mail or snail mail whichever you prefer. Should you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
