Fergus Blakiston is a Copy writer from Christchurch

Hi. My name is Ferg and I am an award-winning travel and feature writer from New Zealand.
I currently operate two travel blogs and have worked extensively writing advertising copy and SEO text for local PR companies. Past clients include a campervan hire company, a telecommunications company, a hydro-electric generation company, and a major New Zealand tourism destination.
My blog travelwriterlife.com features travel stories about New Zealand, Australia, and India; my blog curseofthetraveller.com is a six-year project to serialize my travel diaries from the years 1988-1994.
I bring a wealth of life experience to my writing work having traveled widely (35 countries on five continents) and worked in the farming, construction, and shipping industries.
I specialize in crafting informal, descriptive, and evocative copy for:

  • travel blogs and websites
  • product and service descriptions
  • real estate brochures
  • resumes
  • I also design self-drive itineraries for people visiting New Zealand's South Island.
    I will work closely with you to create the perfect copy for your needs and to help you revise and polish your existing text.
    So...let me know what you need and I'll get right on it.
    Best regards from New Zealand/Aotearoa (The Land of the Long White Cloud)
