That’s tough but such is life. Here’s something to make up for it.

I am now a freelance working from home in York with a super-fast internet connection, and time as a flexible resource. I’m more than happy to work in B2B and Trade writing. I can proof read, edit, rewrite your corporate material. I can find and write news over a wide range of topics. I’m happy to be work on data collection, collation and analysis.
