Birmingham, UK

Hi, I’m Laura

A writer, eternal optimist and rebel entrepreneur

I’m also very proud to be a nice person (there’s nothing wrong with a smiley disposition and a propensity to be helpful). And the good news is I have a flair for writing content that makes businesses immensely more likeable too. Not in a chintzy, cute way (no #kittensofinstagram here). But in a genuine, relatable way that engages the people that mean most to you.

My Word Stylist manifesto

I love writing. I’ll be honest, I’d like nothing more to get my hands on your content. But outsourcing might not be the best option for you. So my focus now is on sharing the writing and communication techniques and processes I’ve honed over the years tp provide a whole range of writing support to businesses of all sizes.

I love seeing businesses grow

I could talk about the big name brands in my portfolio, but the entrepreneurs the solo business owners mean just as much (probably more) to me.

 There’s nothing more exciting than launching something new. Alongside my writing work, I was also a founding director of a start-up technology firm – Timecode Systems. In 7 years, we took this company from a cramped office over a hairdressing salon, to a company with a brand that got it onto the negotiating table with some of Silicon Valley’s biggest names. The company sold last year to a multinational public company, bringing this era of my career to a fantastic close. I  now want to help other small businesses to build brands that can achieve the same success.

My writing credentials in a nutshell


Before focussing on writing, I worked in senior marketing and business development roles for a number of large professional services companies.


As a journalist, I’ve written for national publications including the Guardian, the Daily Express, and numerous industry publications.


From internal communications campaigns for H.Samuel to SEO-rich wellness blogs for Holland & Barrett, there are lots of big name brands in my portfolio. 


But best of all, I’ve worked with some truly fantastic small businesses, and helped them find their brand voice.

I’m not one for formalities

 I won’t bore you with my university achievements, the intricacies of my job history and the finer details of my CV here. I’ll save that for LinkedIn. 

I’m also a member of the ProCopywriters professional copywriting network, so you can take a look at my profile and a snapshot of my portfolio there.

However, by the end of this page I hope you’ll feel you know me a bit better and have a clearer idea about whether this Birmingham copywriter is the right freelancer for you.
