TEXT WRITING & EDITING PROJECTS

sample selection
New Walk Museum, Leicester
Ancient Egypt Gallery - Kids' Activities

I researched, devised and wrote the content for a range of activities for children and families. These included simple physical interactives, a gallery trail and activity sheets.  

Salisbury Cathedral, Wiltshire
Magna Carta Exhibition 

Working with Haley Sharpe Design Ltd, I wrote the text for this HLF-funded redisplay of the Salisbury Magna Carta.

Fort McHenry National Historic Site, Baltimore, Maryland
Visitor Center​

Working with Haley Sharpe Design Ltd, I researched and wrote the text for the interpretive exhibits in the new visitor centre (yes, it's the American spelling in the subheading - writing for an American audience was a key consideration). Fort McHenry is known as the birthplace of the American national anthem, written during the War of 1812.

Leicester Guildhall
Medieval Galleries - Kids' Quest

I devised and wrote a children’s quest through the re-interpreted spaces of Leicester's medieval Guildhall. The quest involves undertaking different activities at quest stations and recording the results on a paper trail. Children can choose from a selection of characters to follow through the quest, resulting in different outcomes and revealing different perspectives on life in medieval Leicester. 

National Horse Racing Museum, Newmarket, Cambridgeshire
HLF Redevelopment Project​

Working with Mather and Co Ltd, I provided guidance and text editing to the client team for this major new museum development at the home of horse racing. 

Dover Castle, Kent
Great Tower Introductory Exhibition

I created the family-friendly text for this exhibition at one of English Heritage's flagship sites.
