Freelance copywriter based in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. If you're stuck for words or need someone to write for your business then maybe I can help.
Introduction

Raised in a small town in Pembrokeshire, West Wales I spent much of my early years helping out in the family catering business and guest house. I would have much preferred to be hanging out at the beach, raving and ogling at surfers but without realising I picked up invaluable skills and got to know what makes a business successful. I also got accustomed to talking with people from all walks of life, I enjoyed hearing everyone's story. I picked up more useful skills in this time than my schooling, my business studies college course and my stint in university.

In my 20's (in 2005) after I could no longer bare to answer another call in my call-centre job and say the same thing that I had said about 50 times that day, I quit and caught the train to London. I was in pursuit of a creative role in writing, advertising or on a magazine. London living and city life was tough. I got on the temping trial and worked across the zones in a variety of jobs. I sold books at RIBA, processed returns at Burberry, and sifted through hundreds of job applications at a recruitment company. After 3 years I eventually landed a nice role in a small publishing and events company and stayed until I left London a few years later. It was here I gained a good grounding in marketing and writing. I managed and created many successful marketing campaigns for a variety of magazines and events.

So armed with the knowledge I absorbed through working in all manner of businesses from the small sole trader to the large multinational, I am a now a freelance copywriter.

I specialise in writing travel pieces, music blogs and event reviews. I also write for business - website content, online profiles, business blogs, email campaigns, newsletters and print marketing.

I enjoy the challenge of writing for different audiences so whatever your requirements get in touch to discuss your ideas or visit my site vanessawmarketing.co.uk for more information.
