I'm Laura, a creative freelance writer of six years, originally from the UK but living and working in Asia since 2015. I currently work remotely as the lead copywriter for LGBTQ+ luxury travel publication Mr Hudson (Mrhudsonexplores.com) developing SEO-driven articles, itineraries, email campaigns and sponsored pieces. Previously, I have worked as an education writer for QS University Rankings (TopUniversities.com) and am an ongoing contributor for a range of clients including inflight magazines (EVA Air), luxury travel publications (DestinAsian) and content agencies (lifestyle, home improvement, culture). While remote work is great, I'm looking to align my career with my ethics, using my voice to promote change in the world. If I can work on human stories, scripts and comedy while doing this, bringing much-needed joy to audiences across the world, then that would be a real dream!
- TopUniversities.com // Articles, blogs and study guides for studentsMy first graduate role with a salary I miss the most. Here I honed my professional skills in a corporate environment and learned that I never again want to step foot in an office, or email someone sitting two paces away from me. But seriously, this role helped me build confidence in my writing, developed my voice, taught me how to communicate my ideas, keep to deadlines, gain readership and ultimately how to write well, within a specification.
- LessEvolved.com // Feature opinion pieces on politics, society and entertainmentLessEvolved.com is my baby. She may be slow on development but on her are the articles I've written that needed to come out of me. Dollar or no dollar. See her for yourself and get a feel for the type of work that gets me excited. My opinions are all my own, I can tone them down but I'd rather not. If you need a critical liberal, I'm yours. For a fee. (Sure, money's the root of all evil, but we've all gotta pay the bills) See full pieces on Lessevolved.com
- Monkey Republic - Graphic Design // Freelance creative writing projectI had great fun working as a creative writer for Monkey Republic, a one-man graphic design company based in The Hague, Netherlands. His vision was to create a website and portfolio of work which would tell people what he was about. I handled some words. Find more here; https://ilovemonkey.nl/
