What my clients think

Elly is one of the best writers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She’s diligent, thorough and smart and possesses a great ability to digest a brief quickly and then just get on with it. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough for freelance work because she can turn her hand to any subject and always produces a thoughtful and beautifully written end-product.

I have worked with Elly for around four years and cannot recommend her work highly enough. She is an extremely talented feature writer, with a distinct narrative voice and great turn of phrase. Unlike so many freelancers, Elly requires very little hand-holding; she is more than comfortable sourcing her own interviewees, copy always arrives clean and I have never known her to submit the bare minimum or miss a deadline. It is always clear that a huge amount of thought and work has gone into her pieces. I only wish all my freelancers were as dedicated, reliable and talented

I first worked with Elly Earls in late 2011, impressed by the quality of her editorial ideas, which demonstrated not only a flair for the original, but also the competence to pursue leads to ensure the right people made it into the story. The moment she filed, I commissioned her a second time. Elly has a nose for a great story, is refreshingly committed to deadlines, and is an excellent writer. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any editor.

About me

I’ve been working as a hospitality, travel and design journalist since 2008, in which time I’ve not only built up a vast portfolio and an extensive contact list of PRs, industry experts and editors, but also lived and travelled all over the world. Currently based in Ibiza, Spain, when I’m not tapping away at my laptop or Skyping with a top hospitality executive, you’ll probably find me absorbed in my Kindle, working out or planning my next adventure.
