What can I help you with?
I started Writing Genie because I love writing! It doesn't matter what – it could be a personal website, a letter, a CV, a campaign description, a story, a book, an article, a tribute to someone special, a personal statement, a memoir, or something else entirely.
About me, Amanda Harvey
I graduated from Middlesex University in 2004 with a first class BA honours degree in Creative and Media Writing. Packing a laptop and dial-up modem cable, I then went travelling, living off what I earned copy-editing CVs, covering letters and university applicants' personal statements via the first crop of online agencies. I've been earning my living from writing and editing ever since.
My first full-time writing job was for a national veterinary organisation. Here, my duties included writing and subediting articles and news for the company's publications and websites as well as writing, editing and proofreading brochure content, sales letters, advertising leaflets, newsletters, press releases and PR articles.
I moved on to a position with a busy PR company, writing press releases and PR articles for large organisations and proofreading my colleagues' work. My next step was a marketing manager role, where I developed my skills in web content writing and SEO, while also writing bids and the documents required for tenders.
I launched Writing Genie and my freelance writing career after my first child was born. In 2019, I also created www.stirandshare.co.uk as a shop front for my copywriting and content services for businesses. If you were wondering where this website had gone, it will back online with a few changes very soon.
Even when I'm not working, you'll often find me writing, especially poetry. I also love reading and listening to audiobooks and comedy.
