My name is Chantal Elizabeth Speed. I can be found on LinkedIn and Twitter. I was awarded a 2:1 in BA (Hons) English Literature with the School Prize for Special Achievement from the University of Central Lancashire. I also have a Masters in Publishing from the University of Central Lancashire. The modules I took for my Masters were Editorial and Production, Business of Books: Marketing and Publishing, Issues and Innovations, Professional Practice, Digital Publishing, Children’s Writing and Publishing, and a Final Project where I created and wrote my own book with a group. I am well adept at using Microsoft Office, Adobe, and WordPress. I also took a creative writing module during my English Literature degree.
One of my greatest passions is travelling. I have travelled extensively all over the world, and I plan to continue doing so. I have learned a lot from travelling and meeting people from all walks of life. Culture and languages interest me a lot. I am currently relearning German and Spanish. I enjoy exercising, especially yoga and pilates. I love to read a wide range of books, from the classics to thrillers. For me, it is important to keep up to date with politics and current affairs, both in the UK and globally. History has always been a great love of mine. My interests and hobbies can also be incorporated into my freelancing work, and I am always happy to share my knowledge and expertise.
