How does a degree in American Literature and Creative Writing lead to describing dresses, toys and the joys of working abroad? The discipline of creative writing, for me, has so much scope beyond the traditions of novels and poetry, and the skills I learned during my degree (as well as those gained since) all feed into crafting good, convincing copy. My work combines the economy of language required in poetry with creativity and sharp attention to detail, and I enjoy tailoring each job to the client's individual needs.
Before forming freelance collective Copy That with copywriter and fellow poet Jon Stone and copy-editor Seb Manley, I began to provide copywriting services for online clients, initially writing articles for top fashion brands. My commissions have since ranged from corporate speeches to articles advising young poets on publication, as well as book reviews and blog entries. Take a peek at the downloadable sample on the right hand side of this page.
My clients include Jellycat (you can see my work in every product description on their new website), Literature Across Frontiers, the Southbank Centre, Chocanory, 30 Days of Victory and award-winning publisher Myrmidon Press, among others.
I also offer proofreading services, and trained in proofreading for editors with the Publishing Training Centre. I have over five years' experience as an editor of online and print funding content for university-focused publisher Research, and am one of the editors behind poetry anthology publisher Sidekick Books. I also edit submissions for cult hand-made arts journal Fuselit
