BLOGGING AND COPYWRITING – NOT9TO5
"Elinor is dedicated, organised and most importantly an excellent writer. She has developed some great content for our website, utilising the brief given as well as adding value with her own creative talent. She has brought to life through her writing the different themes of our work and engaged some great guests along the way to feature. It is a pleasure to work with Elinor and I highly recommend her and her work"
- Helen Denny, Company Director
UNDERPINNED CULTURAL COLUMN
Between February 2019-20, I wrote a weekly cultural column for UnderPinned Magazine with illustrations by Oscar Price.
"There was never any doubt in my mind that Elinor would be the best columnist for us, to say she outdid my expectations would be an understatement [...] Being a cultural columnist with breadth as large as Elinor's is hard, but she does it with distinction and a voice that will not quit. I greatly look forward to working with her in the future."
- Jack Williams, Creative Director at UnderPinned
