Hi, I’m Zoë
My job is to write content that is so readable, so convincing and compelling that it stirs you, my reader, into doing something. That thing might be to read more, it might be to sign up to something, to click, to donate, or it might even be to buy. That’s what content marketing is, in a nutshell – and it works.
Let me introduce myself
My writing background
Since graduating from the University of Exeter eight years ago I’ve been employed by various businesses as a content writer and editor. For one exciting but manic year I worked for a publishing company as editor of four magazine titles covering business, photography, print and luxury travel. If this didn’t teach me the art of managing multiple deadlines at once, nothing will. I also became an accredited journalist, training in skills such as shorthand, court reporting, media law and design. Now I spend most of my time in digital – writing blogs, SEO web content, marketing material and social media posts on probably hundreds of different topics.
I’ve written scripts for online videos, html email content and advertorials for national tabloids and broadsheets. I’ve interviewed CEOs of huge companies (Kodak, PhotoBox, Panasonic), conducted dozens of reviews and I’ve even helped people land great jobs by sprucing up CVs and cover letters.
I love writing. I have studied it, made it my career, my hobby and my life. If you don’t have the time, skills or inspiration to write content for your business, I will happily do it for you.

Home and hobbies
I write content from my home in Eastbourne, which, thanks to its beautiful coastline and proximity to the famous South Downs National Park, is the ideal environment in which to focus on writing and summon creative ideas for my clients. In fact, almost everything I do in my spare time helps me prepare for writing – whether it’s a relaxing yoga class, a mind-clearing run, reading a book by one of my favourite authors, or inhaling five to seven chocolate digestives in one go. Like all skills, writing is a continual lesson and something I am always trying to perfect.
