A child in possession of a wanderlusty parent is a lucky one. And that was me. Whilst I was lost in Walkman reveries, Mom was dragging me all over the UK's nooks and France's crannies, clearly embedding in me an observational eye that I now use to guide my stylo.
When it comes to travel words, we all come across dreary, predictable or hyperbolic content on a daily basis, so my aim is pretty straightforward ─ to write engaging, original and emotive narratives that capture in words a sense of place and the small but explosive facets travellers might savour and carry with them their whole lives.
I write blog-posts, editorial and advertorial for clients in the travel industry ─ and I proofread and fact-check too. And so, here's my portfolio. Do get in touch if you think I could be a good match for your destination or title. I'd love to hear from you.
Lucy pitches relevant and well-considered ideas and writes engaging, well-researched features. It's a pleasure to work with someone who always delivers on time and to brief, regularly going the extra mile to produce high-quality content for the magazine.
LIVING FRANCE MAGAZINE
Un grand merci à nouveau pour le respect des délais et le travail accompli. J’aime ta plume et ta façon de travailler. (Thanks again for meeting the deadline and the work accomplished. I like your ‘way with words’ and your approach.)
I can thoroughly recommend Lucy Shrimpton as a proofreader. Her attention to detail is excellent, and she’s also able to spot the silly mistakes the human eye can often miss. She is responsive, meets deadlines and is a pleasure to work with.
