HELLO, I’M LAURA
Your friendly neighbourhood copywriter.*
I’m based in Dunsop Bridge (Lancashire) with an always-muddy husband and our loud and sticky little boy.
I love fashion from the ‘40s, music from the ‘60s and embarrassing photos from the ‘80s.
*Friendly if I’ve had at least two coffees.
*Local if you’re anywhere near the Trough of Bowland and – if not – email’s a wonderful thing.
I’ve been a PR and Copywriter since I ‘fell into’ a job at a busy marketing agency that advertised for a journalist.
I was neither a copywriter or a journalist, but it turned out I was pretty good! I soon became the PR and Copywriting Manager and worked there for about nine years, becoming self-employed when my son was born in 2017.
Before I worked at the marketing agency, I was an advertorial feature writer for a luxury lifestyle magazine.
And before that (after university) I was a temp. But that’s a story for another time.
I’ve written press releases, features, speeches, brochures, case studies, advertorials, adverts, websites, labels, blogs, radio ads, pitches, poems, awards entries, CVs, answerphone messages and … you get the idea.
From promoting pubs and reviewing range cookers, to discussing daily developments in double glazing, I’ve tackled all sorts of topics over the years. You can see some of my work here.
I pride myself on getting to grips with a subject quickly and writing about it in just the right tone of voice for you and your business.
