Freelance newspaper magazine writer designer model maker Daisy Dawes Writer Illustrator Journalist Wirral Merseyside

Freelance writing, editing and design

My career as a journalist began in 2001 when my chief responsibility was reviewing gigs and typing in the results from the local vegetable competition. 

I honed my skills as a reporter in a remote Cheshire village, then went on to be a sub-editor in the big smoke.  

I left the newsroom in 2006 to become a book editor, then turned freelance when Liverpool won its Capital of Culture status in 2008. 

Since then I have been working with a wide variety of clients across a number of publications, from editing books and helping to co-ordinate national advertising campaigns to writing articles and features for newspapers and magazines nationwide. 

Whatever I’m working on, from listing the winner of Longest Runner Bean to writing an engaging travel feature or organising photoshoots for a national newspaper, I always work to deadline, maintain great communication with my client and produce a creative end result that everyone is happy with.
