Nicola is a brilliant copywriter – and skilled at long-term planning for a campaign as well as detailed execution. She is very straightforward, clear and responsive to work with. I'm happy to endorse her and hope to work with her again soon!

Creative Strategist

I worked with Nicola Slavinas both a colleague and employer; as a business partner when she was at the Dahl Estate and I was at Penguin Books, and as commissioned writer, when I was at Pottermore. Every time the relationship has been professional and pleasant, the work has been excellent and process flawless. I know I will continue to work with the multi-talented Nicola Slavin for many years to come.
