About me
I am a freelance copywriter and content writer, based in the UK (sunny Croydon) who is a bit of whizz with content writing for adverts, websites, product descriptions, SEO content writing services and oh, so much more. ​ I have been copywriting for businesses for five years, and I deliver precise, SEO driven content, that reflects the tone of your company and all with a realistic time-frame. Having worked for small businesses, I know the importance of seeing the value in every expenditure; that's why I offer bespoke rates depending on your needs. I won't sell you a full website overhaul if all you need are a few keyword tweaks. ​ I believe that words, even in our digital age, are the most effective way to communicate with our clients. The most important thing for me is that you feel the copy is organic and all yours - and of course, that it brings you lots of business!

When my family moved from New York to that small town in North Carolina, I never thought I’d find someone like her among the Piggly Wiggly and the tailgates. Discussion in our house never engaged the reality of a woman loving a woman, even with our New York zip code. As we’d laid together that first night in my bedroom, surrounded by Spice Girls posters, I had no idea of what our love would do to the world

    Cathryn GoddardMusic flooded into the lush green landscape; escaping through closed windows, reaching the ears of those who needed it. The choral voices rang high into the rain-laden clouds, echoing through the valley. Whispers of ‘Hallelujah’ reached him as he stood on the hill overlooking the mourners. Bringing the collar of his coat around his face, protecting himself from the bitter Nordic winds, he stared down over his former Parish. No one had believed that they were burying the wrong woman. He had to le

    Cathryn GoddardRachel had been the only person Harriet had wanted to see as she lay in hospital with broken ribs. “I should have left so long ago, Rach.” “I’ve got you, H,” she replied. To the world, Harriet was a wild bird, colourful and free; but to Rachel, she was her mooring in rough seas. Rachel brought Harriet home to the small flat she rented in town; she bathed her, nursed her wounds, made her laugh and held her when she cried. When Harriet was ready, Rachel opened the door again and taught her how
