Amy McPherson writing portfolio

As a freelance writer, I have been published both in Australian and international consumer and custom publications. My works mainly focus on travel, lifestyle and social issues, with the occasional branch into corporate writing, where I have worked on a number of custom content tailored to specific businesses and briefs.

Testimonial for my work:

We brought in Amy to manage content on our business’ blog. Admittedly, our content can at times be considered a dry subject but Amy has consistently found the stories behind the news that is of interest to our clients and readers. SEO leads to the site are up and undoubtedly have brought in new contacts thanks to Amy’s work alone. Highly recommended.

Testimonial for my work:

Amy is one of the most dedicated and professional writers I have had the pleasure of working with. She turns around copy at speed, always on deadline, and flawlessly tailors her writing to suit the publication or style of article commissioned. I’ve worked with Amy for close to four years and I hope to continue doing so for many years to come. Not only does she stay in regular contact with new leads or original story ideas but is a wonderful all round person – and, I am glad to now say, she has become a brilliant friend too.
