The road to becoming a freelance copywriter was not straightforward for me, but with hindsight, it really should have been!
I have always loved to write, and have received many compliments on my writing over the years. In the past, I wrote book reviews for a local newspaper column. Also, for a time I had my own blog on the trials and tribulations of being a mother. I was an audio transcriber for 13 years, which I enjoyed very much. However, whilst this role made good use of my attention to detail, spelling and grammar, it didn’t give me the opportunity to use my creative skills.
I can’t believe it took me so long, but I finally decided that copywriting was what I really wanted to do with my life. Therefore, in 2019, I took the leap to start my own business as a copywriter in Wigan. As a mother to three young children, being self employed fits in much better with family life!
