Eugene Costello

Freelance journalist and writer

Hello. I am a freelance journalist and writer based in east London. I have written for many national newspapers and magazines. If you're looking for a commercial writer, I have worked with many agencies and brands. And if you want to read about what clients and editors think of my work, take a look under 'Testimonials' in the top menu.
Want me to write for you?
Get in touch.

I'm all ears...


I have written for many newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian, The Scotsman, Scotland on Sunday, Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, Evening Standard, Sunday World, Debonair, Halcyon, La Femme, Maxim, FHM and lots of others. You can see samples of my work here...

Commercial Writing

I have carried out many commercial assignments for companies and agencies. I specialise in tone-of-voice work, profiles of, and interviews with, senior executives, company profiles, case studies and web content. I am house-trained and won't wee in the pot plants at meetings with clients...


I have had two books published, sadly, neither netting me enough to live on an island fanning myself with a banana leaf while lying in a hammock contemplating the deep blue yonder. Well, not for more than a few days. Must dig out that Great Unfinished Novel sometime...

Want me to write something for you?

I'll pretty much write about anything. So long as it is legal and ethical. (If it isn't, we'd need to discuss that over a pint...)
Get in touch for a chat about what you need, what your budget is and your deadline for the project.
I'm sure to be able to help...

Journalist, dad, Londoner, traveller, epicure and gadfly. Views my own.
Unless they are libellous. In which case, they are Katie Hopkins's.
