Rosalyn Kirby

Freelance Copywriter & Editor

United Kingdom

I’m a freelance copywriter and editor with over 10 years’ experience writing for some of the UK’s biggest retailers, luxury fashion houses and tech startups.

After training as a journalist, I took a (slightly) different career path and joined the in-house team at Selfridges and more recently shopping platform Lyst as Copywriting Director. Since taking the leap into the freelancing world, I’ve written for brands big and small, covering everything from Premier League merchandise and women’s footwear, to baby strollers and travel guides for far-flung destinations.

Whether it’s SEO-optimised product copy, headers for PLPs or valuable blog articles you’re after, my goal is to deliver compelling content tailored to your business needs. Aside from being great with words and geeking out over grammar and punctuation, I’m also adept at managing large-scale content projects and developing brand tone of voice, too.
