Who is Julie Dawn Fox?

In a nutshell, I’m a well-travelled writer with experience of working in twelve different countries in various fields.

From my base in central Portugal, I work with clients around the world to create compelling copy for the web and in print.

Why choose me as a writer

Since 2002, I’ve been teaching English as a foreign language in Spain, Italy, Tanzania, Venezuela, Portugal and Vietnam. I’m also an experienced writing examiner. This means that not only am I adept at inter-cultural communication, I’m also something of an expert in the finer points of English language and grammar.

My writing experience

I set up my award-winning blog about living and travelling in Portugal in 2011 and produce almost all the content for it.

I updated the hotels and restaurant sections for the latest editions of the Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Guides to Portugal, Lisbon and  Europe (yet to be published).

NorthstarI have also worked for NorthStar Media, updating their Lisbon Guide for industries at Travel42.

BCDuring my 12 years working for the British Council as a teacher, manager and trainer, I wrote:

    • materials for students, specifically designed to highlight and provide practice of target language
    • magazine articles for Learn English Newspapers with language practice activites
    • promotional materials for courses and events
    • presentations for staff
    • full training materials for customer service skills and business skills
    • step by step guidelines for staff on new processes and procedures

Prior to teaching English for a living, I perfected the art of tactful, persuasive business writing over ten years of working within the following sectors:

    • banking
    • training
    • education
    • National Health Service (UK)
    • scientific journal peer reviews
