Hi, I’m Olivia.
An intelligent, empathic and creative storyteller, I’m as comfortable explaining the work of an Oxford particle physicist as communicating the experiences of hospital patients or the genius of a quirky small business. Expert in sparky ideas, sensitive interviewing, and delivering bright and beautiful words, to brief.
If you want genuinely engaging copy – the sort of writing you’d expect to see in a respected newsstand publication – you need to use an experienced, trained journalist. I love to apply my skills from years writing for the likes of Guardian Weekend, Sunday Telegraph Stella and Sunday Times Style.
Here’s what I do for my clients
- Freelance copywriting, content writing, editing and strategy within the public and private sectors and for both SMEs and high-profile organisations and businesses
- Planning and working across diverse forms of copy and content, including social media, blogs, website copy, branded copy, long-form features, video scripts, brochures, advertising copy, guidebooks, marketing briefs and press releases. I’m happy with CMS, SEO and analytics
- Working freelance with agencies, including Guardian Labs, Newscred, YBM, Outlook Creative & Entice Communications
- Delivering acclaimed media & PR training, both bespoke and as workshops
My latest contract?
A wonderful three-month job for the University of Oxford in the summer of 2017, strategising and writing content showcasing innovative research at the university, for a range of digital platforms – including blog posts, features, listicles, social media posts, picture & video research and marketing/press office briefings.

I plan, write and edit anything involving words and will almost certainly do a little happy dance if you ask for my assistance. Please contact me and I promise to let you know how I can help!
