Requests from a number of clients I have worked with as a freelance travel writer mean that I now take on a select number of copywriting assignments within the travel/tourism/cultural sector. These often do not differ significantly from independent travel writing, but come with the key difference that this is content specifically written for the promotion of a particular destination.

Visit County Durham, UK
Following Northeast England’s rebranding as the Christian Crossroads of the British Isles in 2020 and the creation of six new walking routes to trace the area’s hugely influential saints and historic figures, I produced content for six foldout maps (one for each long-distance trail created) detailing the diverse heritage of County Durham, Tyne & Wear and Northumberland. Furthermore, I produced a guidebook to the region for the same project. I was also responsible for producing online content summarising major attractions in Northeast England to make this a truly interactive and bold multimedia project to showcase this region’s appeal on a global scale like never before. 25,000 words of inspirational travel copy.

Liechtenstein Tourism, Liechtenstein
For the 300th anniversary of this Central European nation and the resultant creation of a cross-country hike to celebrate this fact, I was responsible for writing detailed day-by-day content on the experience of hiking the route in question, the Liechtenstein Trail.
