Freelance Writing Services

Available for assignments. I specialise in golf writing and Scottish history writing. I have also written charity profiles and restaurant reviews.

I have been published on the websites of Golfblogger UK, Amateur Golf (a US website), Scottish Golf News, Lothian Life and STV Local. In terms of hard copy magazines I have written for the Scottish Sporting Gazette, Scots Magazine, Sport in Edinburgh, Dark Horse Publications, East Lothian Life and Edinburgh Life.

I also have strong presenting and research skills, having previously given a series of voluntary presentations for the National Autistic Society, and recently completed a social history research project for the National Trust for Scotland. I formerly volunteered at The Georgian House in Edinburgh as a guide for the National Trust for Scotland.

I am a qualified and experienced Scottish Golf Union referee, and have run seminars on the rules of golf.

Fraser Paterson is a knowledgeable and astute golf writer with a deep appreciation of both the game and the history of his native nation. His recent review of Donald Trump’s new course near Aberdeen was carefully written, thorough and delivered well before deadline. We look forward to including his work in the pages of Fairways & Greens in the future.

I have worked with Fraser in a number of contexts over the years and have always found him to be an able and affable individual. Often employing ‘outh of the box’ thinking and intelligent imagination. Fraser works to get the job done. He works with his team, his colleagues and anyone who has the desired skills. He makes sure he delivers on time and always adds a little more than expected.

Fraser regularly writes for our weekly newsletter regarding rules and implications. His writing is informative and delivered in an easy to read and understand manner. I would thoroughly recommend Fraser as a freelance journalist to add content to any publication.
