My story…updated

Hello there, thanks for dropping by.

_DSF3886-Edit

**UPDATE** Due to recent changes I now find myself in the position of looking for full time work. If you’re an agency that is crying out for real, self taught digital talent than I would love to talk to you. My Linkedin profile can be seen here http://www.linkedin.com/in/catherineyaffe

My name is Cat and I have been a freelance writer since leaving the corporate world in 2007. I studied Freelance and Feature Writing with the London School of Journalism and had relative success being published in women’s lifestyle magazines as well as having a regular column in a local newspaper.

In 2008 I branched out and developed a recruitment magazine ‘Recruit Yorkshire’ with full editorial control. I sold this in 2009.

I continued to write for business magazines, women’s lifestyle magazines and began blogging whilst building a full service digital agency Cat Creative Media, specialising in social media and content marketing.

Outside of work I am mum to 21 year old Daniel (where does the time go?) and life partner to Mark.

I am an avid reader, a lover of Tudor history and I’m in my element roaming around historic royal palaces. I also, of course, love words!

I work from a very handsome Shed of Words which takes pride of place at the bottom of my garden. To read more about The Shed take a look at my personal blog www.shedofwords.co.uk

Please feel free to take a look around my website and portfolio which I am steadily filling with my most recent published work.

Topics I write about: women’s lifestyle, setting up, running and growing a small business, health & well being, parenting, recruitment/employment, relationships, family and working from home.
