Simon Emslie, freelance copywriter & proofreader

Hello, I’m Simon

A curious copywriter and profffesional purrroofreader who used to work as a barrister (the type that drinks rather than makes good coffee).

For 13 years, I was a frustrated writer living someone else’s life.

Then one day I discovered I could take my eye for detail,  my ability to persuade and my *straightens snazzy tie* knack for reading people – and combine these with my love of language. To help businesses sell, and authors tell, their unique stories.

I’m still a way off clocking up as many miles as I did as a lawyer. In a Volkswagen Lupo.

But now, having been trained by The Creative Copywriter, I write frequently for The Creative Copywriter and other top-notch clients. And I’m known as a word-slinging cowboy. Or so I’ve been told.

So if you’re looking for someone who’s used to getting results, let’s talk.

 

Simon stood out to me from his first day in our copywriting academy as a writer with the greatest potential. His innate understanding of not only how to craft persuasive copy, but also the psychology behind it was impressively natural.

We didn’t hesitate to bring Simon on board as a freelance copywriter for our creative agency and will continue to have him here for as long as he wants to be.
