Emily:
A post-graduate career in third sector Marketing and Communications in London gave Emily a grounding in design, publications and event management. From there, she moved into regional newspapers, working first in page layout and production, gaining a sound knowledge of production processes and organisation. 
Several years writing features, advertising copy and restaurant reviews followed, until the opportunity arose to work in Africa as editor of the in-flight magazine for the Rwandan national airline.
Now back in the UK, she is a freelance copywriter and editor in both the commercial and NGO sectors. She works with NGOs specialising in genocide and post-conflict recovery, and recently worked with the Government of Rwanda on the 20th Commemoration of the 1994 genocide. Working via London design agencies, she also provides advertising copy for high-profile clients including Greene King pubs and the Modern Apprenticeship scheme.
