I love being able to help people do what they love, whilst also doing something that I do too.
My experience probably isn't what you'd expect to see.
I've been working in finance for the best part of the last 5 years, but it's not where my heart is. Prior to this, I lived and worked in Paris as an au pair, where I started to write copy on an ad hoc basis to supplement my income. I knew I could write, I didn't realise that it was something that I'd have a real passion for. Coming back to the UK, the pressure of having to rebuild a life here meant I fell back into the 9-5 and, to cut a long story short, I've come full circle. I'm ready to build a career that I'm passionate about.
Stick with me here...
I have a bank of skills developed from my previous outing as a copywriter and working with words is a craft that I'm honing. It's something I have a passion for and a continual learning curve. By working in finance I've been afforded the opportunity to work with a host of different audiences and personalities in a customer centric setting. It means I'm now more adaptable and flexible and I can work to meet a variety of needs for a variety of people. So whilst I haven't been writing, I've still been building some invaluable skills.
'But why should I hire you, not someone more established?'
Because I love to write. To create articles and narratives that not only sell but invoke a connection with their audience is a wonderful thing and something that I feel incredibly priviledged to be able to do. I am still learning but I'm going on a journey which means I'm as invested in the process as you are. It's not to be discouraged by someone's lack of experience, more encouraged by their enthusiasm to establish themselves and become one of the best.
'And you want to be a photojournalist?'
Documentary photography is something I really have a passion for in an extra curricular setting. I was a photography student in college and absolutely loved major projects that allowed me to tell a story. I like to frame emotions through words but also capture them through a lens. There is so much of the world to see and so little time for us to do it. The power of the photo essay is that you can bring a subject to life for a person who would otherwise not be able to experience it.
'Primarily, you write copy though?'
Yes. On a day to day basis, my job will centre around creating thoughtful, provocative and refreshing pieces designed to sell ideas and products. I will work with clients on a step-by-step process to make sure we're on the same page and we both love the end result. I also offer ancillary services, such as proofreading to those clients who want to keep their work in-house but need a little extra resource to cross the t's and dot the i's.
'I think you can help me, can you?'
Please get in touch if you have any requirements for writing copy, marketing pieces, blog posts, articles or any other informative materials. I'm also available for proofreading work in regards to sense checking, grammar and spelling checking and search engine optimisation.
Website copy and blog content that matches your brand and engages your audience
Emily was a pleasure to work with. We chose her because her initial response was very personable and she has related experience for the subject matter. She wrote the copy for the whole website after an initial briefing and interview with the MD, and we were super happy with her ideas and approach. She brings personality to the brand as well as answering the brief bang on. She has a can do, positive approach which was a joy. We will be working a lot more with you Emily, thanks so much for your hard work. Charlotte Dewar, Creative Director, Coda Branding
