TESTIMONIALS

Here’s what some of the people that I’ve been working with recently have to say about me…

“Suzy was recommended to us by an existing supplier who knew she would be the best fit for the job. They were right! Suzy took on the work at short notice and in a few hours we were putting her in touch with the client, feeling confident that with her great communication skills she would prove to be easy to work with. We are confident to recommend Suzy as her work has been of great quality. The client is happy and so are we!”
Catherine Turner, Commissioning Editor, Jam Pan, The Number one, on-demand, digital learning marketplace

‘I have recently worked with Suzy on a major project, in which we commissioned her to write many scripts, on varied subjects, to a tight deadline,  and I am impressed with her proactive approach to working. She is punctual and when she gives me a deadline, she sticks to it – which is vital for me as a Production Manager on a large project. She is very accommodating and is always happy to help out where possible. She has been a joy to work with and I look forward to working with her again.’
Freya Wood, Production Manager, Virtual College

“I worked with Suzy and her co-author Ian Lowey on their book ‘The Graphic Art of the Underground’. Suzy was a fantastic author to work with. She and Ian delivered carefully curated, high-quality text and images and during the process of developing and producing their book were unfailingly friendly, professional, accommodating and patient.  I was extremely pleased with the finished book.  Suzy was also proactive and creative when it came to promoting her book, something that helped our sales team to sell it to bookshops and other retail accounts.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Suzy as an author and collaborator and would be very happy to work with her on another project.”
Rebecca Barden, Senior Commissioning Editor, Bloomsbury Publishing

“Suzy has been writing for Creative Tourist since December 2012; she is an adaptable writer who can turn her hand to a wide range of subjects, from shopping through to exhibition, film festival and restaurant previews, as well as seasonal roundups and with a special interest in events for families. She’s always fastidiously accurate in her copy, and punctual too, she is an immensely reliable writer.”
Polly Checkland Harding, Editor, Creative Tourist

“I have worked with Suzy on more than one occasion now; most recently she wrote the voiceover script for an advert that Bearded Fellows was commissioned to create. I find her both creative and professional in her approach: she paid careful attention to the brief, and produced exactly what we asked for, writing in a warm, empathetic tone that would engage with the viewers. She’s easy to work with, accommodating and understands the need for continual dialogue with clients. We will certainly be commissioning her for future writing projects.”
Matthew Stanners, Bearded Fellows Film Production Studio

“Suzy worked for Total Tattoo magazine for several years, both as a subeditor and a writer. She’s always been great to work with: very professional, friendly and efficient, and her dedication to both detail and deadlines can’t be faulted.”
Perry Rule, Publisher, KMT publishing

“I worked with Suzy Prince on a drama synopsis for the BBC. Suzy brought bags of enthusiasm, insight and professionalism. She gave me the confidence to take the idea to other people. I would have no hesitation in working with her again or recommending her to others.”
Simon Gilchrist, Freelance Television Producer. BBC Documentaries include  ‘The Met: Policing London’, BAFTA nominated series ‘Route Master: Keeping London Moving’, ‘Great Ormond Street’ and Panorama ‘Kids in Care’

“Suzy recently worked on a collaborative project to build a database for the arts production facilities and services in Salford and Greater Manchester.  She is a fantastic collaborator and a fastidious worker.  Her commitment to communication, attention to detail within her work and flexibility under pressure were assets to the project.  The work co-produced was of a high standard and, while this was the first work I have done with Suzy, I fully hope it isn’t the last.”
Sarie Mairs Slee, Creative Consultant

“Suzy, a graduate from our school, returned to Newcastle University to help us design and lead events aimed at improving the skills and employability of our English Literature and Creative Writing students. Drawing on her own experiences in media and publishing, writing and lecturing, she’s been fantastic. Patient, positive and professional, her talent for communication, her willingness to lean in and her energy and insight have made a telling contribution.”
Dr James Annesley, Head of the School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics: Newcastle University

“Suzy is a real gem: the sort of writer who writes to get the blood circulating;  someone who is both a steady pair of hands but can write to suit the occasion. We have worked together (after meeting on Womans’ Hour!) via Alumni activity at the School of English. Suzy is both generous, engaged and someone you want on your team. I’m very glad our paths have crossed!”
Tina Gharavi, Senior lecturer in digital media/film: Newcastle University. BAFTA nominated, award-winning filmmaker and screenwriter

“We invited Suzy Prince to lecture to illustration and graphics students at the Swansea School of Art about her book, The Graphic Art of the Underground. The lecture proved to be a stimulating and enjoyable experience for the students as it was well prepared and structured by Suzy so that it would be relevant to their module. A lively debate centred around Counterculture was instigated by Suzy after the lecture. She related to the students in a thoughtful and supportive manner, encouraging their questioning and opening up new pathways for consideration of contemporary culture. We hope to be able to invite her back again for the new student intake in 2015.”
Louise Burston, lecturer in illustration theory, Swansea School of Art and Design

“Suzy was a great copywriter to work with on our Cancer Toolkit. Her design and social care experience meant that she could understand our requirements straight off and approach it from a well rounded perspective. She worked quick, accurately and checked-in as often as needed. For my needs, that was exactly what I wanted.
We’ve recently had the Toolkit evaluated by a university and the linguistic score was really high.  That means that users found it easy to understand and that the content of the toolkit is discussed in a more straightforward way than even in the trusted public-facing NHS website!  We were thrilled that with Suzy’s help, we had managed to develop a great, easy to understand resource.”
Adrian Smith, Assistant Director, Unique Improvements

“When I was a director at Vanilla Storm Suzy worked with a number of our clients, providing them with online copywriting services.  She is friendly and professional and has that rare ability to translate your notes and ideas into beautifully crafted prose.  Suzy tailors her copy to the end user and fully grasps the nuances of online writing, helping to increase conversions and generate leads. I have known Suzy for several years: I am a big fan of her writing and have been a keen reader of Nude Magazine and her recent publication The Graphic Art of the Underground.  I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
Jenny Hudson, Director: Vanilla Storm limited. Now online marketer for ‘A Really Good Campaign’

“In 2014 – 2015 Suzy undertook a major project for me, in which she subedited and proof read an 80,000 word academic textbook. Several of the chapters in the book were written by academics for whom English is not their first language, adding extra complexity to the task. She was extremely thorough and meticulous at all times, and fully understands the importance of total accuracy in academic work, as well as meeting deadlines. She also made some invaluable suggestions regarding punctuation and standardising text in line with the publisher’s house style.  Suzy is professional and friendly to work with, and I would be very happy to call on her services again.”
Geoff Pearson, Senior Lecturer in Criminal Law, University of Manchester

“Suzy undertook some transcription work for me recently: an oral history interview I had done with a writer. She completed the work before the agreed deadline, did the job perfectly, even managing to get the humour of the interview into the transcription: no mean feat. Meanwhile, she was a pleasure to work with, organised, efficient, and great to meet with over a cup of tea. I’d happily work with Suzy again, and have no hesitation in recommending her to others. Thanks Suzy.”
