Jill Shearer – writer & publicist
I'm a Wiltshire-based journalist, publicist and copywriter with 20+ years experience of writing, editing and publishing in a wide variety of subjects in national newspapers, magazines and books – from ethical and green issues to food, personal finance, interior design and astrology. I also offer a ghostwriting service and take commissions for writing crisp, snappy copy for websites, brochures, advertising, blogs and corporate literature in a wide range of topics.
While much of my career has been in glossy consumer magazines such as Homes & Gardens, 25 Beautiful Homes and Practical Parenting, I've also written for The Daily Telegraph, The Daily Mail and Wiltshire Magazine as well as several regional local newspapers.
One of my specialisms is the home interest market, and I'm always on the lookout for beautiful or unusual homes to write about. If you'd like to explore the possibility of having your home photographed and featured in a glossy magazine, please get in touch. I also write about food, popular psychology and gardening and recent publicity projects include the Malmesbury Philosophytown Festival.
