All About Me

I’m Sue Vincent-Jones an experienced journalist, editor, copywriter, and communications specialist – with a passion to put diversity and inclusion at the heart of everything I do.

Writing as Mrs SVJ, I blog about all things Barry, and beyond, through the eyes of a, queer and quirky, local girl done good.

My diverse, and deep-reaching platform, includes comment and opinion, critiques and reviews, news and social action stories, advertorial and features – all written with an authenticity that sees me recognised as a credible voice of the communities I serve.

Named as one of Wales Arts Review 100 Women Writers of Wales, my reputation is also validated by my regular and respected Style of the City column, and my ad hoc Barry Magazine contributions.

An award-winning queer activist, dedicated community supporter and passionate arts lover, I am also, a founding member of LGBTQymru. Chair of #TheGlovesAreOn Charity, Media Lead for Cadstock Music Festival.

And a strong supporter of the Vale’s Stand Up to Racism Group . I recently lectured to University students globally on the importance of active allyship to the #BlackLivesMatter cause.

I specialise in writing clear, compelling copy that completely captures the target audience’s attention.

And I then use my extensive communications skills to publicise this content through a wide range of channels.

I also love sharing my skills to help individuals, charities, community groups, and businesses, to promote their cause, campaign, product or project.

I enjoy working with them to write their own compelling story, and then see this shared straight to the right, relevant, readers.

Happy to help campaigners, charities and companies, with a wide range of media and marketing solutions too.

This includes editing, proofing, copy writing, copy editing, strategic communications planning, digital delivery work and social media stuff.

Featuring often as a guest writer on a number of local, and national publications, I’m more than happy to take commissions.

And to review anything that involves music, art, film, (or food – gf only of course!), for the many journos, editors, and owners out there looking for competent copy writers.

In this spirit of pay it forward, I’m also keen to showcase the work of my contemporaries on my site, and share their articles through my extensive networksfacebook, twitter, and Insta.

A credible and connected voice of the community with a respected and popular platform, please feel free to find out all about me, my blogging business, and how to hit me up.

More than happy to meet for a virtual chat over the trusty Zoom or the old favourite Facetime.

Keen to catch up in person too.

It’ll only cost you a coffee.

Speak soon.
