B.A. (Hons), M. Ed.
I am a freelance writer based in Monmouthshire, South Wales. I write fiction and non-fiction.
As well as being a writer, I am a qualified secondary school teacher.
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and a Master’s Degree in Education.
Content and Copywriting
Over the past three years, ‘Rachael Bird – Freelance Writer’ has provided quality content and copywriting for a variety of businesses and charities.
‘Having launched a new business with little time to give to marketing, I engaged Rachael’s expertise recently to help me to write my website and create my brand identity whilst ensuring that it reaches a targeted audience in order to optimise its success. Working with Rachael is a joy. She is calm, professional, well informed and my experience has been a great one. I recommend her highly.’
Mair Barron, Director of Best Practice Coaching & Mentoring Ltd.
Please note that I am no longer writing content and website copy for businesses. This is so I can devote more time to pursuing my fiction writing ambitions.
My outdoors blog is listed on the website for TGO (The Great Outdoors) Magazine. TGO Blogger Network is the UK’s best network of outdoor-themed blogs.
I write a regular feature about walking, published in the ‘Bwrdd’ newsletter for Wales in ‘Mensa Magazine’.
‘Rachael is a long-standing, regular contributor to ‘Bwrdd’, the newsletter for Mensans in Wales. Rachael is reliable, thorough and professional. But, more importantly, she writes wonderfully. Her articles transport the reader to the trails, hills and fells that she frequents, and when you’ve finished reading you find yourself searching for your hiking boots to plan your next adventure.’
Anders Nilsson, Previous Editor of ‘Bwrdd’ – The Newsletter for Mensa Cymru
I have completed several drafts of my first novel and I am in the process of submitting it to agents and publishers. I am currently working on a second novel and a screenplay.
‘Rachael has a fresh, modern style and I think her work will have broad appeal.’
Paula Brackston, New York Times bestselling author of ‘The Witch’s Daughter’
I have written three scripts for a local drama group. All of these scripts include a sense of fun to suit the requirements of the group.
‘As a follow up to ‘A Breath of Fresh Air’, Rachael has written a short play called ‘A Night at the Besties’. The whole play is full of fun including the names of the characters giving scope for a lot of over acting.’
Barbara McIntee, Director of The Llanfoist Players
Thank you for showing an interest in my writing. I will continue to update this page with further news.
