Journalism Portfolio - Natasha Spencer-Jolliffe

Hi, I’m Natasha Spencer-Jolliffe, and I love words.

I have been working as a freelance journalist for more than a decade and have a wide range of experience in writing on many topics. These include beauty, food and drink, the environment, technology, health and legal/the law.

I have written for a variety of publications such as Ingredients Network, FI global and Cosmetics Design as well as producing content for webpages and press releases for brands and businesses. My work has been well received, with great reviews from both readers and clients.

I am passionate about producing quality content that is both informative and engaging. If you are looking for someone experienced in writing articles, press releases or web content, please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!

Listening to them, learning new ones, putting the perfect ones down on page to make that sentence just right, and whizzing them around again until they’re just so.

And of course, nattering words to chat, relate, put the world to rights, ask questions, and generally find out more about the world and us in it.

On this site you will find my latest published articles.

You can email me at or find out more information about me on my website
