I’m a professional writer with a background in magazines features and travel journalism. I’ve been sending dispatches from the front line of freelance writing for over 15 years.


If you need words, I’ve got them. I can write winning articles for your print or digital publication, compose compelling guest posts for your blog, compile engaging editorial content for your website, or write second-to-none stories for your brochure.


I’m based in Chester and regularly cover stories for national publications around Northwest Britain and Wales.


If you’ve got a deadline, then I can meet it. Interested? Please get in touch to discuss how I can help. I’m on atkinsondavid@icloud.com and 07974 390436


I know what makes a good story and understand how to deliver it on time with accuracy and flair.
