Betsy Everett – Journalist

With many years experience of news reporting, feature-writing, editing and public sector communications, I am now a freelance journalist living and working in the Yorkshire Dales. 

The area is a rich source of human interest stories, cultural activity and controversy around rural issues. Instigating and developing feature ideas from personal contacts within the community is my strength, rooted in my early newspaper experience.  My specialist skills include:

  • Profiles of people in the business, cultural and social sectors
  • Coverage of rural issues including health, education and planning
  • Reviews – art, music and books
  • News reporting
  • Consultancy services: advice plus  training on how to write for your business, document editing, crisis management from a PR perspective and speech-writing
  • Photography
