I write words that get you noticed, with the power to persuade, excite and get the right results.
Maybe you need a website with killer SEO. A finely honed sales letter or email. A stand-out brochure. A newsletter or blog. A persuasive script or engaging annual report. Or do you have a product you want to name or need a memorable strapline with real impact? Whatever you need, I’m here to help.
As a qualified journalist with a Masters in scriptwriting, and many years of experience with a leading international copywriting firm, whatever story you want to tell, you’re in good hands.
On larger projects I get my network of other amazing freelancers involved.
No one knows your business better than you do. But telling your audience what you can do for them in the most effective way possible isn’t always the best use of your time. Now you can concentrate on what you do best – running your business. In the long run, you’ll save money, time and hassle.
For a free review of your words, and how effective they are, just send them my way. If they’re spot on, great, I’ll let you know. If they can be improved with a bit of copywriting jiggery pokery, I’ll tell you. Then we can go from there.
Give all your written communication a consistent personality and you’ll come across as more coherent, more distinct, and even a little more loveable. Let me help you create your own unique tone of voice, and reap the benefits.
Define and plan the best way to use all your words, pictures, audio and video together to achieve your goals. Now all your content has context, and you’ve given your business a nice boost.
When done well, the right combination of words and images creates memorable messaging that really breaks through. I’m here to provide you with all the words your campaign imagery needs.
Need one-on-one or group coaching? Want your people to all write in the same consistent tone of voice? Feel a presentation of effective business writing would benefit your company? Just shout. I’ll tailor coaching or training to fit your needs.

“Getting the words on my website right was vital to my new business. The Copy Shed really listened to what I wanted and went out of their way to offer an excellent service. Highly recommended.”
“The Copy Shed are great to work with and really help your website get results. They explain the complexities of what we do clearly, provide reassurance for customers and helped increase bookings from the moment it went live.”
“Over the years, The Copy Shed has helped us revamp our website, communicate with customers, and produce our Christmas brochures. They’re sticklers for getting the words right, and always on hand with useful advice.”
When we speak, we generally speak ‘forwards’: ‘the boy ran up the hill’. It’s natural, simple and effective. So why do so many people change how they communicate the second they get a pen or a keyboard in their hands? Why do they go all Yoda? Suddenly it’s all ‘up the hill the boy ran’.
To paraphrase Obi Wan, ‘these are not the words you are looking for’.More
We writers often have the mickey taken out of us because we’re such sticklers for grammar, spelling and punctuation. We get called tedious, annoying and worse. Why let it bother you so much? Can’t you just let it go? Why do you even care? Well, let me explain why.More
