"Hello Iain, thank you very much for this copy. We are over all quite happy with the content, but please remember to use the keyphrases ("(expats) living in <city>", "moving to <city>", and "working in <city>") a bit more often in any future texts for this project. Thank you very much! Best regards, Franziska"
Having worked as a note taker in legal hearings for nearly a year, whilst writing for a couple of political blogs, I got a job as a full-time sports betting writer for creative web agency Grand Parade, producing content for most of the big bookmakers' news sites. Alas, I'm about to be laid off after seven fruitful months, as we lost a contract after Xmas and I was the last man in. Emboldened by the experience, I hope to take what I've learned and progress in the writing trade.
