BC MacManamon

Writer and Researcher

  • Location: Ireland
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a Freelance Writer and Researcher, with ten years of writing solo and in teams. In the past two years, I have researched and written content for iOPW ( an SEO company), a screenplay of mine has been longlisted for the Red Planet Prize and my writing for graphic novels has attracted interest from professional artists. I am also a capable literary editor and illustrator.

I have a varied range of other work experience, from club hostess to nanny, but two of my most valuable areas of experience have been my 10 years in customer service jobs and my 5 years as assistant director/producer on a number of short films. These have provided me with skills in team work, coordinating large scale projects, maintaining a pleasant and professional demeanour under pressure, risk assessment, and planning ahead. I was often sought out for my production skills, as my analytical abilities meant I was good at realistically assessing how much work could be done and seeing the project through to completion.

I am currently studying a part time course in Digital Marketing, to give myself a grounding in best online practice. It is providing me with many new and enjoyable skills, and a greater understanding of the resources available to me.

As a writer and researcher, I am passionately interested in a number of subjects, including history, equality, mental health, art and design, cultural change, graphic novels and good writing. I am an avid reader and nature lover.
