Hi, I’m Leif Kendall, and I’m thrilled to be taking over as the Director of this fine organisation. One of the most exciting details about this change of management is that the organisation is going to be maintained and developed by a team of members. By sharing the work I believe we can help PCN to grow and do even more to support copywriters of all shapes and sizes.
Meet the new PCN team
The Professional Copywriters’ Network is now managed by an impressive team of copywriters:
- Anna Gunning
- Benjamin Lloyd
- Chris Alden
- Jack Barclay
- Jane Shepley
- Joanna Brown
- Kady Potter
- Louise Sparke
- Peter Rylands
- Rebecca Nichol
What does the future hold for PCN?
We’re planning to continue with more of the same. You can expect more:
- Advice on copywriting and freelancing
- Articles exploring the agency side of copywriting
- Activity in the forum
- Practical support
- Links with external partners, like universities, corporations and other associations
- Support for our copywriting cousins, including content strategists and content agencies
- Effort to make the ‘Find a copywriter’ function even more useful for you and potential clients
You can help!
PCN relies on the efforts and contributions of our members. By sharing your knowledge and your experiences you can help other copywriters to develop their careers. You can help in many ways:
- Tell your colleagues about PCN
- Write a blog post for PCN
- Let PCN re-publish one of your blog posts
- Join the PCN committee and get involved with the management and development of our organisation.

Who am I?
I’m a freelance copywriter. I love writing for a living. And I love being freelance. Outside of work, I’m usually busy with my family (including a 6-month old baby!). I also write fiction but lately I haven’t had much time for the novel (baby).
Why am I taking on the PCN?
I have a few reasons for believing that we need the PCN:
- Copywriters need more cooperation in a world in which we’re often competing
- Copywriters need support when starting out, or struggling, or just trying to avoid pitfalls
- Copywriters need a voice that will raise the profile of our craft.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
Thanks for reading – and thanks for supporting the Professional Copywriters’ Network.
