I’m Lucy, a 28-year-old freelance writer from Leamington Spa.
At 5:30pm one day in June, I packed up my metaphorical box of desk bits and left my job. As of 5:31pm, I became a self-employed freelance writer.
I freelanced in 2017 during my Master’s but stopped, thinking I couldn’t make it work. I stowed away in an office for two years in a ‘proper job’, building up experience in marketing with roles in the live arts sector and the burning inferno that is agency-side advertising.
I then did something completely off-script: I left my full-time job during a global pandemic.
With the world in pieces and everything going remote I picked up my freelance harness, curious to scratch a three-year-old itch, and tried again.
I signed two clients almost immediately, with bylines in HuffPost, the Metro and Elite Daily steadying my nerves and proving my worth.
Which is what leads you, and me, here. I’m a voracious and dedicated writer, with a wealth of experience in copywriting, branding, long- and short-form content writing and an eye for pesky errors.
