Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine
I have 10 years experience in the heritage and museums sector, so I was thrilled to put it to use for Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine. I was commissioned to write a feature on the history of pleasure boating titled 'Life is but a dream...' for the Summer 2018 issue (released July 2018). I have another feature out in their Christmas 2018 issue. You can read a pdf of the feature here.
Content creation and social media marketing / Family market
I worked with Families to create content for a regional website aimed at the family market.

I also developed and managed two social media accounts alongside this, growing one account from zero to 1200 organic likes in 6 months.
