All work and no play makes Emma a dull girl...
Freelance writing can be fun, fantastic and creative, which is why Emma Ward's Words was set
up in the first place. To combine work and play to get the best of both worlds! Below are just a few
of the slightly more creative or one-off freelance writing projects we have had fun with over the
past few years.
- Prepare to swoon... in 2010, Emma entered a romantic short story competition entry contest run by the unlikely combination of Mills and Boon and The Lady magazine. Despite there being more than 2,000 entries, she won first prize, earning herself a chest of books and a reputation for crafting the perfect romantic tale.
- Polesden Lacey's people... the house stewards at Polesden Lacey commissioned Emma Ward's Words in 2011 to
create a special room guide folder of information sheets about the rooms, their contents and people who used them.
The folder was extremely well received and remains available to visitors and volunteer tour guides to this day.
- Starter for ten... Emma is actively involved in fundraising for a Surrey prep school to buy resources and experiences to
enrich the studies of its pupils. In 2014, she was asked to research and write a set of questions for the annual quiz night.
Topics ranged from local history to celebrity babies (can you name Princess Anne's youngest granddaughter? How
about Simon Cowell's little boy?). Emma even oversaw adjudicating and scoring on the night. She must have done a
good job, as she has since been booked for repeat performances in 2015 and 2016...
LET'S MAKE SOME MAGIC...
If you haven't got the message yet, Emma Ward's Words really is for everyone and anyone. No freelance writing project is too small, too large (although we might have to call in some help if it is really massive!) or too bizarre for us to consider.
