About me

Hi! I’m a Freelance Copywriter, Editor and Assistant Project Manager with a portfolio full of blog posts, newsletters, magazine articles and more. Please find examples of my work throughout my profile, and at www.marthareedink.com. I am always up for a challenge, and happy to discuss either freelance or full-time opportunities. After graduating from Oxford with a 2.1 in English Language and Literature last year, I spent a year working on exciting projects in Vienna and Seville, and developing new skills. I started at Lomography HQ in Vienna. I wrote and proofread numerous newsletters, press releases, pitch letters, magazine articles and Kickstarter campaigns. I poured my excellent grasp of grammar and style into writing the first ever Lomography Style Guide. When my internship ended, I became a Freelance Copywriter and Junior Project Manager at Lomography—and moved to Seville to polish up my Spanish skills at CLIC language school. I have an engaging and adaptable writing style, a sharp eye for detail, and excellent time management skills that enable me to manage a busy and varied workload. I am currently settled in London. In both English and Spanish, I love talking to people. I’ve talked to students, parents, founders and Education Ministers about applying to university and the importance of access to higher education. I’ve convinced businesspeople and media stars of the importance of artistic projects for young people. I am a strong, confident and competent communicator. When I’m not chatting away, you can find my nose buried in a good book. Fiction and non-fiction, poetry and prose, ancient manuscripts with little drawings in the corners—if it has words on it, I'm interested. I read quickly and thoroughly, and I evaluate what I have read in considered detail. If you think that my skills would be a good addition to your organisation, or if you’d simply like to chat over coffee, please get in touch by connecting with me on LinkedIn, or contacting me at marthareedink@gmail.com. Thank you!

  • At the end of my six-month internship, I was hired as a Freelance Copywriter and Assistant Project Manager.

I work with the design and magazine teams, Creative Director and Online Manager to ensure that four impeccable Lomography newsletters are sent to over 1 million subscribers every week.
