Travel Writing

Place is integral to arts and culture and my interest has always been to look both far afield and close to home for inspiration when it comes to all three themes. Travel represents a major thread in my writing career and I’ve pursued it in various ways.

Travel copy writing
I do a great deal of web copy writing, a good chunk of it for the travel industry (both European & North American based) in various forms, including:

  • webpages
  • destination descriptions & mini guides
  • tour descriptions

Clients – through brokers – include,,, among many others.
