Hello, you can see some of my published work on this site and a small selection of my photographs.
With over 15 years’ experience I write regularly for print and online publications specialising in destinations, lifestyle, food & wine, arts, heritage & culture and luxury markets.
As a freelance writer I welcome hearing from editors of magazines, newspapers or online sites in the UK or globally looking to commission features, reviews and other content. So please drop me a note by email via the contact page to discuss potential projects. Or you can get in touch on Twitter or Instagram.
Working with PRs, tourism organisations and commercial projects
“The Languedoc Wine Council hosted Irene for a press trip in the summer of 2019. Irene has been a very easy going person, that integrated well in the group (although of very different profiles than her own), and was interested in every activity and person she was introduced to. She has been very serious in verifying her sources and the details of what she chose to write about in her articles. We have enjoyed reading and sharing Irene’s pieces, and we are proud that they translate our affection for our beautiful wine region. She is more than welcome for a future visit”. Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins du Languedoc.
I like hearing about new story angles, launches, new openings etc. If you are a PR, tourist board or commercial body such as a hotel, restaurant or product you think will be of interest to me or a publication, please get in touch for a chat.
“Irene was an absolute pleasure to work with. She over-delivered in terms of pieces of coverage and we were thrilled with the results. We would definitely recommend working with her!” Eating Europe
I’m happy to recommend high quality places and products that I would choose independently. Of course, I will be entirely transparent about any working relationships in any posts or articles.
A media pack is available on FOHR – or email me for a copy, or DM me on social media – and I look forward to working with you. Whilst I am just getting started on social media (where I’m aiming for quality over quantity), in addititon to writing for publication and for my own online journal, I attend many profile events.
If you would like me to write a sponsored post on @hashtravelling, or a story on Instagram, with links back to your brand or product, this is on the basis of full discloure and I reserve the right to write only about those products and places that impress me. Please get in touch for rates.
Maybe you’d like to commission me to write a guest post for your company blog or content for your web site? In-house, I have written for iconic brands, including Rolls-Royce Motor Cars at Goodwood and the private West Dean Estate in Sussex. Drop me a note with an outline of your project, with deadlines, and we can discuss this further and fees.
