Monica Shaw

My decades-long writing career is a case study in versatility! My heart lies in the food and nature writing I do for my outdoors business, Eat Sleep Wild, and my personal essays about writing for Writer's Residence. Along the way I've also written for a wide range of sectors and verticals, largely built on my backgound in computational and applied mathematics. My most notable professional writing roles have included: 

  • Data storytelling for major international brands built on my background in applied mathematics and statistics
  • e-Learning courses and online educational material, most recently as a statistics lecturer for Open University
  • Copywriting and content writing for numerous businesses and individuals, founded my expertise in SEO and web analytics
  • Food and travel writing both online and in print including The Telegraph and The Independent
