Pat Richardson
founder of Perfectly Worded
 

           Pat Richardson was winning prizes for her writing before she left school. More recently, she won the National Magazine Company's 2008 Eagle Award for Outstanding Contribution to Editorial: a tribute to her 18 years at Best where, for 16 years, she was concurrently Travel, Fiction and Regular Features Editor, writing and editing many hundreds of features.

           On winning her Eagle Award, Pat was hailed as 'a class act, full of drive and passion' and described as 'Natmags at its best' and her features as 'so well-written - every word carefully crafted'. Also praised were her 'accuracy, dedication, innovation, energy and unwavering enthusiasm', and the way she 'researches every feature with thoroughness'.
         
          Pat - who regularly serves as a judge for the British Guild of Travel Writers' annual awards - is herself an award-winning (and runner-up) travel writer, now on a freelance basis. She has been to 70 countries and hundreds of cities, taken numerous river and ocean cruises, stayed in countless hotels, criss-crossed much of Europe by train, flown with most major airlines and many smaller ones. Her features appear frequently in The Daily Telegraph's Cruise Style and Travel Escorted supplements, and she welcomes commissions.
     
           In July 2010, Pat launched www.HotelsThatWereNot.com, a website based on her personal passion for hotels that were not originally hotels. Her exceptional - and ever-growing - selection of places to stay in, currently, 20 countries, features individual properties with unique histories and authentic character.
 
         Such is her enthusiasm for, as she puts it, 'making words work' that Pat isn't satisfied to do so only through her own travel writing; she also guides, coaches and mentors writers of both fiction and non-fiction, through her Writers Feedback services - and, as testimonials on this website show, does so with skill, sensitivity and success.
 
          She reads voraciously, has also been shortlist judge for the Short Story Radio Romance Award, and was on the steering group for National Short Story Week.
 
        Prior to joining Best - where she first worked as Dossiers Editor, producing four- and six-page specials on subjects across the women's-interest spectrum - Pat enjoyed a 16-year career as a health and beauty writer, which began when she conceived and single-handedly wrote a 640-page mail-order beauty course, continued with her producing countless features for magazines and partworks, plus promotional and advertising copy for major fashion and beauty clients, and culminated in such roles as Beauty Editor, Contributing Editor and Consultant Editor on a number of well-known magazines including Woman's Own and WeightWatchers.
