She has worked extensively as a news and feature writer for various B2B magazines and in internal comms; as a sub-editor on national newspapers and on consumer and B2B publications; and as a copywriter/editor for various corporate and small business clients.

Sue holds the newspaper journalism certificate of the National Council for the Training of Journalists as well as professional qualifications in internal communications, PR and marketing.

She can call on a network of other editorial professionals (graphic and web designers, writers, photographers) to collaborate on larger projects.

F Words can handle a broad range of subject matter. Some of the articles Sue has edited recently include: winter sports technology, electric cars, magnet therapy, fashion retailing, kitchen knife technology, the latest beauty products and Colin Farrell’s love life.

She has carried out interviews with board-level execs in the IT, retail, legal, insurance, banking, advertising, satellite technology, construction, telecoms and healthcare sectors, asking them for their views on matters as diverse as recruitment, IT, business development, the legal function and what makes an effective company director.

On the creative side, Sue writes songs (comedy and serious), some in collaboration with co-writers, and would welcome offers of other collaborations, particularly from pro and semi-pro performers and from production/promotion experts.

Please see the Songs & Jingles page for more on this.

The blog posts on this site – mainly on the subject of language, journalism, writing and the freelance life – give a great idea of Sue’s fluent and engaging writing style.

  1. Sue,

    Even though I’ve just started following your blog, I enjoy your style of writing and your wit. I’ve noticed we have many bloggers on here from the UK on WordPress and I do appreciate the diversity. That’s why I’m nominating you for the Versatile Blogger Award.

    Thanks for your blog.


  2. Thank you, Susan, lovely of you to think of me! I’ve just checked out the details of the awards on your blog and will endeavour to do a suitable post over the weekend. It’s quite exciting being nominated for something other than it being my turn to do the dishes. Again.

    • The more the merrier!

  3. Hi there! Thanks for following my blog :) Just wanted to drop a quick note and let you know that I have moved over to, so to continue receiving updates, you may have to sign up via email or RSS at
    Confusing, I know… but worth it ;)

    • Good luck with that – I tried the CSS upgrade for a while on and it baffled me so much I decided there was no chance of me ever moving to!
