I have published content on Contena-Publish, Medium, and LinkedIn Pulse and manage posts on social media- Pininterest, Linkedin and Mastodon. I have used social media calendar- Later.com to post to Instagram and Twitter.

Categorically not a Primary school teacher any-more! I now live and travel, along with my husband, on a fifty- foot narrow boat- a beautiful location for my remote writing! This is the inspiration for publishing 'The Porthole Peeper'. Peeping Tom's paradise, it isn't! - But a monthly, narrative, lifestyle blog. Go to elizabethwriter.com and join me!
Reading from a wide range of publications- AutoCrit, Medium, The Sun Magazine, Creative Nonfiction Magazine Sunday Short Reads from Brevity. Sweet Lit, River Teeth and Diagram, current affairs, news and lifestyle... I like to stay up to date on stories, news and creativity; I am interested and aware of the world.
Recent published work on Medium, Contena, Linkedin and Wordpress. I often post to Medium, Minds, Mastodon, and Pin-interest too. I have written about lifestyle, food & nutrition, nature, history, education & current affairs, with good humour- I enjoy a little dark humour.
I continuously improve by learning about effective content writing and SEO techniques learned through Yoast for Wordpress. I often enjoy joining in valuable training events with authors and successful freelancers on Auto Crit, ProWritingAid and The Write Life. Other interests include illustration, and I am a weekly member of my local Art Club.
I teach English part-time, to wonderful Chinese children remotely- I don't speak Chinese! With weird and wacky friends from around the world, I frequently enjoy Indian, Mexican, and Chinese food. I am an avid supporter of drinking raw milk and like cooking healthy food- much needed to help digest all the chillies!
I hope to explore travelling far and wide again…
