Hello, I'm Liz.
A few titles I go by:
Content Editor and Creator
I'm an arts professional with an academic background who set one foot outside the academy but can't yet decide what to do with the second one.
I have a drive to share stories with people - historical stories, brand stories, academic stories, professional stories. I work from a place of empathy, translating material into diverse types of content that make those stories accessible to a wide variety of audiences.
I've organised exhibitions and conferences, recorded podcasts, written blogs, designed marketing posters and websites, and published both in print and online. The way I see it, we have so many creative mediums through which to create narratives - why not use them all?
To date I’ve written content for art, commerce and product descriptions, and academic articles with image inscriptions. Newsletters, love letters, twitter and tweets - with a flare for accurate research and grammar that is neat. To name a few.
I was also the content editor for Bath Spa University for a number of years, specialising in research copy and content creation, which included tweets, blogs and podcasts (to name a few).
See my copywriting portfolio for some examples of my work.
I have given talks for a number of public bodies including the BRLSI (Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution), the Swindon Museum & Art Gallery, the Bruton School for Girls, and Bath Spa University undergraduates.

Blogging and Web Presence
While at the BRLSI, I had the pleasure of co-curating two photography exhibitions with local group PhotoBATH, one focusing on works from Sebastião Salgado's Genesis (loaned from the collection of 31Studio), and a retrospective of the works of documentary photographer Carlo Chinca.
