finding the best way to say it

the right words for the right people

I am a freelance marketing copy and content writer, here to help you find just the right words to market your business and reach your target audience. I write for online and offline publications, go the extra mile with blogs and articles, and come up with straplines and headlines that will get you noticed.

With over 10 years of experience, I always take great care to understand my clients' marketing needs, adopt the tone of voice that suits them and thoroughly research each project.

I bring words to life across a wide range of topics. For that extra impact, I am also able to offer visual images to go hand in hand with the copy and content I create.

All the photography used in my website and in the photo gallery is my own.

Christina Evatt, Head of Creative Marketing, Persimmon plc
Anna is an absolute pleasure to work with both in terms of working relationships and the quality content she delivers. Her attention to detail and unwavering work ethic, alongside a wealth of creative ideas and engaging writing, make Anna a rare find. She’s a trusted and important part of the team here at Persimmon, boosting our SEO and customer engagement with her exceptional copywriting skills.

Sarah Nash. Slow Travel UK
Anna has recently contributed an article for our website. It's an excellent article and worth pointing out that it's the first time I have not had to make any changes to submitted copy. I hope Anna will write some more for us.

Jacqui Speke. Jordan's Courtyard, Somerset
Anna has written marketing copy for my wellbeing business and she has a real gift for understanding the style and ethos of the offering. Rather like having an in-house marketing department. She delivered efficiently and it was just what we wanted!

Katie Chown - Marketing Manager, Children's Sailing Trust, Cornwall
I worked with Anna for many years in my last role as Head of Marketing and Communications in the travel industry. She writes with a certain eloquence that makes reading her stories a delight. Some writers fall into overuse of adjectives - a lazy way to describe, but Anna has always found a way to write about people, places and experiences that appeals to a wide audience in an imaginative and inspiring way. It has been a pleasure to work with someone so caring and passionate who takes obvious pride in her work.

Sally Hannah. Confederation of British Industry
Throughout the seven years in which we worked with Anna we found her to be the consummate professional, genuinely enthusiastic, understanding and always keen to deliver what we were looking for. Through my own long-standing CBI career in customer service, I can recognise quality when I see it, and Anna never failed to disappoint. We were particularly impressed by her eloquent and enticing written description of our cottage and its surroundings in the Quantocks, which reflected her own appreciation of our property and was always acknowledged as a true representation by visiting guests. Her talents also extended to photography, and photographs were regularly refreshed to provide a different take. I wish her well in her new ventures - she will be a hard act to follow.
