We commissioned Robert Hawley to write a history of Lancashire specifically for young children. It was thoroughly researched, hugely informative, a pleasure to read and, I must say, very well received.

We asked Rob to work with some of our volunteers to develop their skills in writing for the web. He delivered a bespoke session tailored to the needs of the group, working with them on a one to one basis to cast his professional eye over their writing and help take it ‘to the next level’. Working with an under-confident group of volunteers, Rob was extremely positive and motivational whilst also being sensitive and diplomatic, helping to re-energize the group’s efforts to write effectively for the web. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Rob to lead a writing workshop for you or your organisation.

I first commissioned Rob when I was Editor of Lancashire Life, and he was one of the first writers I recruited when I went to edit Lancashire & North West Magazine, now the UK’s largest circulation county magazine. His wide ranging essays on the landscape, heritage, culture and architecture of Lancashire and Yorkshire – he also writes for our sister publication Yorkshire Ridings Magazine – are different from anything else any other editorial contributor produces for us. His enthusiasm for these areas shines through in his essays. I say essays but these are much more than mere reporting, rather forensic examinations of his subjects yet presented in an accessible, readable style.
