Work with me

With over six years of freelance blogging and feature writing experience, I have worked with many individuals and an amazing range of organisations. As a proficient interviewer and researcher, I’m passionate about Kent’s homes and history and would love to write for you.

So, what’s my story?

Following my passion for Kent’s historical people and places, I began blogging for Kent Life magazine in September 2010 and had my first feature published in September 2011. Since then I have written everything from author profiles, quizzes and ’20 museums to visit’ compilations to ‘through the keyhole’ style pieces and coverage of literary festivals. In fact anything that my editor has asked for and you can see lots of examples on my portfolio page. My passion for Kent’s homes and history still burns brightly and this is the area I now specialise in.

As well as writing for Kent Life and the Kent History and Library Centre,  I have also been commissioned by Kent Homes & Interiors magazine, A Walk in the Garden, StayGo magazine and Bygone Kent. I was also thrilled to be commissioned to write several heritage based articles for the Heritage Lottery Funded ‘Wandering Words’ project launched in May 2015.

This resulted in me leading a two-hour, historical object related writing workshop at the Guildhall Museum in Rochester as part of the Rochester Litfest in 2015 and I have now been booked to co-host a lecture as part of the Wigmore Lecture Series in Rochester on March 8 2016.

I welcome enquiries and if you would like me to write an article, book, lead a history related writing workshop or take part in a  heritage project, please email me at rachael@historymagpie.com and I’ll be in touch shortly.

In the meantime, you can read some of the lovely things people have said about me below and I look forward to hearing from you.
