Hi, I'm Andrew, a freelance copywriter based in Northampton (UK). Thank you for dropping by.

“The written word is the strongest source of power in the universe.” Gary Halbert

They have the power to persuade, inform, convert, inspire … and so when it comes to writing your business message, your story, using just the right words really does matter.

First impressions count. So does your business reputation.

For what you say and how you say it really can make all the difference. The difference perhaps, between your audience responding in a positive way. Or simply ignoring you.

I can make sure your message is never ignored.

I'm an experienced writer with almost 30 print articles to my name. This includes a major series commissioned by The Countryman magazine, where I wrote and illustrated 10 out of the 13 one thousand word pieces in the series on British Garden design through history.

So you see, your story will be in safe hands.

I will carefully select just the right words and then weave them into relevant and effective copy that captivates, persuades and inspires your audience.

In short, I will make your message worth reading. Whatever you need to say. In print and online.

I'm happy to write on most subjects (within reason, of course), but the areas where I have a particularly strong interest and real writing experience are...

• Architecture - contemporary and heritage
• Gardens / garden design
• Great outdoors / countryside / environment
• Historic locations and attractions / history
• Photography – the vision and the technical
• UK Travel and tourism

During occasional breaks from writing, I work as a freelance landscape and location photographer. Something I've done for twenty years. Here, I use pictures to tell the story.

Words have, however, been a recurring theme with a background that includes the world of publishing, direct mail and print and design project management.

So if you're looking for some well-chosen, compelling words to inspire and persuade your audience, I'm just the copywriter you need.

If you have a copywriting project in mind, or would just like to discuss some possibilities or ideas, please get in touch. I'd love to help you.

Whether you're in Northampton, Northamptonshire, the East Midlands or beyond.
