Nick Cowling

Copywriter / Content Writer

Location icon Australia

Life is all about embracing your passions and developing your skills. With writing I can do both.

As a skilled and innovative professional writer I know that writing must have personality and a character of its own to remain relevant. With my years of practical experience I know how to craft stories that excite and entice. I know how to authentically convey a unique tone of voice, and I can drive the reader to pursue a desired course of action.

When not writing I can be found screaming at the top of my lungs at a Western Bulldogs game, frequenting one of the many cafes in Melbourne's Inner West, or looking with envious disgust at the latest attempt to re-invent the burger.
