About Jen


Jen Richards, Writer

I specialise in writing in the space where sustainability meets gastronomy.

I have over twenty years experience as word-wrangler. In fact, I was a voice and dialect coach for ten years, before I chose written words over spoken ones.

Clients say that they love that they can trust me with a whole range of writing tasks. I write discussion papers and project manage content marketing initiatives and grant applications, as well as doing the advertising, direct mail and social media copy.

Not a food business? Don’t worry. Because of my depth of experience, I’m trusted by a diverse range of organisations. My skill as a researcher in the field of sustainability and understanding of food systems flavours all my work.
