Freelance Copywriter

United Kingdom

I'm Sophie, a London-based freelance copywriter with a range of offline and online experience. While earning a first class degree from UCL's English department, I was Editor of the London Tab and reviewed shows for a university arts and culture journal.

I have been commissioned to write pieces for The Student Room and regularly create content with a range of SMEs and start-ups. I also have experience in a range of client-facing and administrative roles.

On this site you will find a selection of my work. It is by no means an exhaustive display, so please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to see some more examples of a specific style or genre. I hope you enjoy having a look around, and look forward to hearing from you!
