My task, which I’m trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel-it is, before all, to make you see.
— Joseph Conrad

Megan has been writing stories since she could hold a pencil and it's her journalism experience that really sets Rural Roots apart as a communications agency with a difference.

Megan trained at News Associates in London, the top journalism school in the country, while simultaneously building a career in local journalism and working in a pub (which, coincidentally, is now one of her PR clients), gaining her National Council for the Training of Journalists certificate in 2009 followed by her NQJ (senior qualification) in 2010.

Writing is her passion and she already considers herself as an 'old school' journalist; hand writing notes in scruffy shorthand and never losing her physical connection with the written word.

Her own rural roots and interests in travel, heritage, farming and nature have helped to steer her career as a freelance journalist towards telling inspirational stories from the Great British countryside and she recently identified a gap in the market and launched her own digital magazine, The Rural Travel Guide, focusing on the rural tourism industry.

As a rural writer, hard news is not always easy to find, so she is trained to dig out hidden angles and alternative stories and will happily put her skills to use to create content that will not only tell tales but educate, influence and engage your readers; whether it's a national title or a targeted blog. Her own style is to inject a bit of warmth and personality into each piece but she can also help you to find your own written voice.
