Hi, I’m Rhiannon-Skye! I’m an award-winning Leeds-based poet and professional freelance writer, with a first class degree in English and Philosophy from the University of Leeds.
I am currently open for commissions of all kinds, and I would love to bring the story you want to tell to life!
Over the years, I have written snappy and engaging social media copy for a variety of brands and businesses. I have created seasonal advertising campaigns, composed newsletters designed to convert new buyers, and responded to queries posed by potential customers. I have worked for sports and gym brands, grocery delivery services and pet care companies, as well as managing the social media of several publications and events.
I have 5+ years of experience in the content writing sector and, in that time, I have created work in a variety of formats and niches. I have written breaking news bulletins, entertainment listicles and do-it-yourself tutorials, as well as reviewing television, film and theatre for a number of prominent publications. I have also worked as a scriptwriter and researcher for a number of successful YouTube channels, creating educational and engaging videos on pop-culture, nature and urban legends.
As a music journalist, I have interviewed many popular acts, including Creeper, Mallory Knox, The Wonder Stuff and Ned’s Atomic Dustbin. I have written features documenting the local Leeds music scene, reviewed festivals such as Reading and Leeds, 2000 Trees and Slam Dunk, and covered countless gigs, singles and album releases. I have also created EPKs, bios and one-sheets for numerous bands worldwide, conducted full digital press campaigns, and have managed a team of 20+ music writers at two separate publications.
I am a published poet and award-winning spoken word artist. My work has been featured in numerous Leeds-based publications, such as Good People Magazine and The Gryphon, and was most recently included in Greenteeth Press’ anthology “Unhomely”. I have led poetry and spoken word workshops with groups aged from 13 to 21, on themes such as identity, queerness, mental health and politics.
Rhiannon was awesome to work with throughout the process. She took on board everything I sent her and gave my band a brilliant bio! Will definitely be working with her again to produce some more press materials!
