Senior Copywriter , Bishopsgate Copywriting Available for work

My background is in commercial banking, marketing and financial journalism. Driven by a passion for writing, I opened Bishopsgate Copywriting in 2010. Most of my clients are in the financial sector, but as a consequence of both Brexit and COVID-19, I'm actively working to diversify my client base. I would like to work with more small and medium-sized businesses in Kent and across the South East.

In terms of what I write, the answer is...pretty much anything. I'm somewhat older than your average Pro Copywriter, but they do say that with age comes wisdom! I have a meticulous approach to my work and spend a lot of time on the research phase when I write for my clients - I do sometimes wonder if they appreciate how much work a copywriter does before actually writing anything!

I particularly welcome approaches from publishers and PR agencies about writing magazine articles and longer features. I’m also a skilled interviewer, with an ability to get interviewees to relax, open up and speak naturally to me.

Please head over to my website, or my Facebook page, for further info about my copywriting services. And give me a follow on Twitter, where I rarely talk about copywriting!
