Hello, I’m Sarah.

I provide precise, accessible copy crafted in your desired tone and style, always delivered on brief and on time. My clients include publishers, businesses and charities.

Following five years’ editorial work in-house for publishers including Hodder & Stoughton, I’ve been freelance since 2006. My experience is backed up by a BA degree in Linguistics and English Language, an MA in Language Studies, and industry-standard training in copywriting, editing and proofreading. I'm a Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and a member of ProCopywriters.

I enjoy writing on a variety of topics for a wide range of clients and their differing audiences, and I’m especially good at turning complex or confusing information into clear, compelling copy.

I’ve written marketing and fundraising materials for international charities, and feature articles on topics from classical music to eco-evangelism. I also write for the web, with experience of SEO, and am available to businesses and charities as a regular blogger on a range of subjects, ensuring your site is frequently updated with up-to-date, professionally written content.

Although I’ll gladly write almost anything I’m asked to turn my hand to, my passions (and the majority of my experience) are in the following areas:

* charity copywriting (information for individual and corporate supporters, appeal letters, envelope copy, etc)

* international development (I have experience of living in a developing country and writing for local charities)

* Christian lifestyle (Bible guides, ‘how to’ features, ethical discussions, small group materials, children’s resources)

* environmental issues (especially consumer-focused ‘make a difference’ pieces)

* adoption (I’m an adoptive parent and use a pseudonym for this topic; please contact me for more details)

* SEND parenting (specifically FASD, autism, and ADHD, along with two years’ experience of SEND home education and the EHCP system)

I ensure that any words leaving my desk do so with all the apostrophes in the right places, so you can be assured of compelling copy and engaged readers.

You’re welcome to read my samples and references at, and I look forward to working with you.
