Since graduating in 2014, my words have been read (or heard!) by hundreds of thousands of people. I’ve had the privilege of working on many different projects, from writing blogs and paid advertising for large corporate clients to co-writing a script for a major theatre production. Since toured across the UK, the show has also performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Off-Broadway in New York City.

I’ve always believed that the key to writing good content is just like the key to writing a good song – if you make it relatable, interesting, and engaging, then your audience will take care of the rest. You can have all the SEO optimisation you like, but if you don’t give your audience a good reason to carry on reading, you might as well have not bothered putting the metaphorical pen to paper.
