    Copywriter, author, thought leadership writer, disruptive consultant and journalist with over 25 years of experience as a professional writer. I believe I am among the very best copywriters working in the UK and globally. I am currently mostly working remotely. I have written for and consulted for clients across business, charity, quangos and politics. These include Channel 4, Transport for London, Amazon, Borkowski.do, Edenspiekermann, Airbnb, Red Bull, Open Data Institute, NESTA, RatedPeople, Natwest, Arts and Humanities Research Council, Debt Hacker, Child Poverty Action Group, Freuds, Hays, ThoughtLDR, Allegory, LastMinute.com, HaMuch.com, Founders Pledge, Humanade, Vivienne Westwood and HSBC. I write to a very high standard and my work on architecture, AI, LLMs, BCorps, technology, building, construction, youth subcultures, fashion, the arts, data, health, campaigning and artists can be found in the Guardian, Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph, FT and Dwell magazine. I also write about these topics for commercial clients, taking them into tier one media with thought leadership and ideas for PR campaigns. I work both remotely and in-house, taking on contracts or working ad hoc, as needed. My copywriting and consultancy work has a dedicated website at thisidea.co.uk. I have written two books for major publishers and am comfortable writing for online or for print, producing short SEO-friendly copy that will keep people reading or blogging in your brand tone of voice. I am at home generating ideas, writing charity leaflets or penning 4,000 word essays for artists' catalogues. I have also been called in to deliver corporate emails, ghost writing for CEOs and founders, site architecture, strategy, charity campaigns, bids and major copy overhauls for websites and apps. I have written financial copy and terms and conditions for online and offline business. I am known as an innovator and am often ahead of the curve, which is why I have also been asked to carry out re-brands and re-thinks for major PR agencies. I can promote your organisation via thought leadership, ghost-write for your CEO, write staff profiles and blogs, or even teach staff how to write well for your business. My work is cited in several dictionaries, is part of the Open University English syllabus and has inspired several university research projects. I am also director of a company that deals in social history and the arts, which is one of my specialisms. You can see my journalism and books at iainaitch.com. "Iain is part of a community of collaborators I deploy when I am stuck for ideas or need inspirational copy. His propensity for and knowledge of left-field ideas is a thing of wonder." Mark Borkowski, founder Borkowski PR "Over the last two years, I have enjoyed working closely and collaboratively with Iain, who is highly-adept at picking up and running with the latest ideas in AI, data, and technology. He has a knack of making the new, and the complex both interesting and accessible for a wider audience. He does this without loss of rigour, he does not 'dumb down', and produces material that finds favour with existing experts. Moreover, he is able to come up with original takes on developments in AI, data, and technology that command the media’s attention. He always adds a distinct human touch to his work, whether that be thought leadership, speech-writing, or ideas for media content, making considered arguments during the creative process and in his finished work." Sir Nigel Shadbolt, Executive Chair of the Open Data Institute and Principal of Jesus College, Oxford. "It’s clean its lean and it does exactly what I want it to do. You’ve brought my idea to life, beautifully. I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work." Michelle Grahame, Director, Virtually Working "Iain’s creative mind is the sort one wants to handle problems. He scurries away and quietly broils up a series of marketing and public relations ideas that lesser people would only conceive with breathtaking amounts of off-label medication. I endorse Iain’s abilities, and his good sense to put them in the service of legal commerce rather than villainy." Jason Martin, CEO, Iotum

    I’m a tea-drinking copywriter from Hertfordshire, and winner (mostly) of the daily battle against some pretty independently-minded hair. I specialise in verbal identity (brand voice and messaging) and conversational copy for brands that want to be noticed – throwing in plenty of creativity and strategic thinking along the way. As well as the unpredictable hair, I also have over fifteen years of professional writing experience across the commercial, public and charity sectors. I’ve worked as a freelance copywriter since 2017, and I utterly love my job. I work direct with B2C and B2B businesses and charities, as well as in partnership with design studios and creative agencies.

    Do you need a new tone of voice or a brand refresh? Perhaps a video script, or your site rewritten. I'll be your guide. My USP: I'm an award-winning advertising copywriter and scriptwriter with 25 years of experience who has worked in B2B, consumer and healthcare. My training at the School of Communication Arts, and extensive writing background, means that I’m conceptual and strategic, and not simply a writer who fills in the blanks. I grasp the essence of each communications challenge quickly, and can help advise you on the best approach for your marketing strategy. How I can help: Whether you’re looking to launch or relaunch your brand, need a consistent tone of voice, a big communications idea with deliverables across multiple platforms, or simply a blog, an email campaign or a website refresh, I have the expertise to deliver copy that brings results. What I offer: My specialisms include advertising concepts, direct mail, press ads, posters, radio ads, social media, SEO content and online advertising. After interrogating the brief, I produce all types of written material, from banners and viral marketing, to TV, film and animation scripts, brochures, catalogues and flyers. Editorial services: If you’re looking for more straight-forward editorial assistance, I can proof-read and sub-edit your copy to help you optimise your content. Alternatively, I can write original copy from scratch or refresh your existing content. Committed to producing the best work, I check and double-check my copy every time. My approach: I’m equally happy working on my own; or in close collaboration with a creative director, art director or designer, as well as in larger, multi-disciplinary teams of software developers and project managers. I set high standards for myself and never compromise on quality. Working with me: When you work with me, you’ll discover I have the following skills: - conceptual thinking - commercial value add - both long and short copy - a flexible, versatile attitude - ability to build rapport quickly - quick learning capacity - a sense of fun A typical project begins by discussing the brief either face-to-face or over skype or zoom, email or by phone. We would then agree on deadlines and budget, any source content, and if appropriate, set milestones for delivery. I look forward to working with you. Still undecided? Here's what some happy clients of mine have to say: “Julia is a very talented scriptwriter. Her response to any brief is thoughtful, creative, highly structured, and presented with a clear and considered rationale. And it's always delivered bang on time. She has a flexible approach and is great in client-facing situations. She's able to produce beautifully crafted work. I would have no hesitation in recommending Julia to anyone in the creative industries whose first consideration is quality.” Kate Greenslade Video producer Freshly Made Films “Julia is a terrific writer and a brilliant addition to any team. She gets to grips with briefs at very short notice and can swiftly respond to deliver superbly crisp and clear copy that does the job perfectly. She's definitely that 'go-to' person when it comes to finding a fantastic freelance copywriter.” Katy Lindemann Digital Product & Experience Strategist “Julia's exactly what you want in a freelance writer. She's fast, efficient and writes fantastic copy. She's also good fun to work with and can turn her hand to just about anything you throw at her.” Ian Sweeney Freelance Creative Director “Julia is an excellent Copywriter. She takes our extremely vague briefs and turns them into absolutely perfect copy. She is by far the best Copywriter we have ever worked with.” James Percy Managing Director Verasseti & Dreamspace UX “Julia kicks ass. She knows how to write well, she knows what reads well, and she knows the business inside and out. I was brand spanking new to ad copywriting when I first started working with Julia and most of the stuff I now know that's worth knowing, I learned from her. She is clear headed and will give no quarter in defending the word, the flow, the meaning of the work – all without being precious about the end product. Julia is a real pleasure to work and collaborate with. If you want creative copy with the integrity of the finest pizza crust, you want Julia Howe.” Laura Rohde Senior Digital Copywriter Wunderman Look forward to working with you.

“I am at my best in the morning, so I try to schedule all creative tasks before lunch. If I’m struggling in the morning, I use the classic strategies of changing where I’m working from, taking a break, or exercising in the hope of a Eureka moment.”

Declan Morton, Copywriter.Declan Morton

“I’ve always enjoyed writing but I didn’t set up on my own account until 2019. At that point I had been teaching for nearly two decades and had become frustrated with the academy trust to which my then school belonged. I took a plunge and set up as a freelance writer.”

Jo Watson

“I wish we were all more honest when speaking to newer or younger copywriters and telling them what to expect in their career. It’s a hard job, it’s constantly evolving, and it’s still nowhere near as widely respected (as both an art and a science) as it should be.”

Abby King

“Let your work breathe. While it’s tempting to send over to the client once a piece is ready, I try to give it at least 24 hours (where time allows!) before I go back in, review and send.”
