I am a professional copywriter with 10 years' experience in online media, expert in writing copy for blogs, websites, newsletters, marketing materials, brochures and more.

I have always worked with highly competitive organisations and am known for producing fast, accurate copy to tight deadlines and at a fair price.

Satisfied clients include Qatar Airways, EBay, Orbitz, Military Kit and other internationally recognised brands.

I’m happy delivering whatever the client wants in the time allowed, and find even humble product descriptions an interesting challenge. Making a pair of ex-army trousers or a baseball cap sound irresistible is something of an art!

Pricing

I charge £50 per hour. This is my rule of thumb and in that time I can typically write a reasonably straightforward 500-word article. If you have an unusually tight deadline, or there is a lot of research involved, I may charge a bit more. It all depends on the job in hand but that’s the basic idea, so please feel free to drop me a line.
