I want to help small and medium businesses and charities to achieve their goals and dreams.

As a journalist, I use storytelling, research, and interviewing skills to provide powerful copywriting which:

  • Connects with your customers
  • Persuades
  • Achieves your goals
  • And meets your deadline.

I’m also available to work for marketing and digital agencies.

My services include:

  • Newsletters
  • Press releases
  • Leaflets and brochures
  • Product descriptions
  • Direct mail and email marketing


I have more than ten years’ experience in print journalism. I provide content for print and digital publications. This includes:

  • Feature articles
  • News stories
  • Press releases
  • Ghostwriting
  • And profile writing.

Media relations

When I write you a press release, I can also handle your media relations. I will pitch the release, distribute it, and handle any media enquiries. This will free up more of your time and give it the best chance of success.

Proofreading, editing, and reviews

  • If you prefer to write your own marketing copy my review service will give recommendations to ensure it achieves your goals.
  • My proofreading and editing service will fine tune your words for accuracy. I correct potentially embarrassing or costly errors, and ensure you create the best impression. This service is open to businesses and individuals including students.

“We have been thrilled to have the support of Joanna in helping us to get our messages out there. As a voluntary sector organisation competing for volunteers and funds it is important that ensure we release a constant flow of press releases. Joanna has a knack with words and pitches our press releases perfectly. As things currently stand 100% of all press releases written by Joanna have resulted in media coverage. We cannot thank Joanna enough for her support and have no hesitation in recommending her for any copywriting projects you may have.”
