About me


Hi! I'm Thom James. I'm a freelance copywriter based in London. Whilst studying for a BA in English at Goldsmiths College, University of London, I started working as a copywriter and a social media co-ordinator for a number of start-ups based in Central London. Internships turned into full-time positions, and full-time positions has led me to freelancing. My specialities are based in bespoke copy, creating an engaging social media presence with proven organic reach, blog management and SEO optimisation. I'm a strong believer in the artisanal craft of writing, and this has lead me to have my work featured in publications such as: The Huffington Post, The London Economic, The Daily Express, The Leopard Newspaper, Thought Catalog, and Hello Mr Magazine just to name a few venues. I've been working in the field for over 3 years now, and if you're looking for a proofreader, a subeditor, a social media co-ordinator, a blog manager, a creative writer or a copywriter - then let's talk!
