A different perspective cr Judy DarleyWhen I’m not wrangling with fictional characters, I’m working as a contract communications manager, copywriter and freelance features writer. Clients include charities, authors, artists and businesses.

I produce and manage implementation of content strategies, write and edit a wide-range of content, produce newsletters, populate websites, advise on branding, and launch or revitalise social media channels.

This includes producing engaging targeted copy for consumer magazines and B2B titles as well as digital content, newsletters, brochures, press releases and social media copy, primarily aimed at boosting brand loyalty and inspiring readers to try something new.
