Copywriter and Digital MarketerSelf-employed
I am an experienced, award-winning, CIM-qualified copywriter with 11 years experience working for high-profile brands and agencies including J.K. Rowling's Pottermore, Penguin Random House, Wonderbly, King's Cross, TMW, Wunderman, the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Really Useful Group. I specialise in long-form copy and research-heavy features, and have written for B2B and B2C audiences on everything from books and musical theatre to private equity and trade.
I love words. ESPECIALLY written down. I've created advertising copy, white papers, social media posts, emails, features, blogs, ebooks and creative projects. So yep: give me a brief and I'll give you the words.
In summer 2016, a Roald Dahl campaign I worked on with Persil - My Messy Adventure - won the Best Licensed Marketing Communication Award in the 2016 UK Licensing Awards and the Content Marketing Award in Brand Republic’s 2016 Digital Awards.

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.
