Disclaimer: writing copy is all about the client and therefore the focus should always be on ‘you’ and not ‘I’. But you want to know who you’re working with, right? And rules? They’re there to be broken? Absolutely! So for this page only – it’s all about me.
Hi there. I’m Alison – owner of MK Word Studio – a Freelance Copywriter based in the wonderful town of Milton Keynes.
A former internal comms girl, my life changed when the younger of my two children was diagnosed with ASD and learning difficulties.
Realising that a return to the corporate world (after a career break) wasn’t going to work for my family, I decided to retrain as a copywriter and take a leap into the freelance world.
My philosophy in life and business is ‘no drama’ – I don’t have time for it. Working part-time from my home office, I offer a professional copywriting service to small and medium businesses who value the power of words, communicate clearly and pay up on time.
I like to keep things simple – my main services are website copywriting and business blog content. I have, however, written leaflets, brochures, guides, CVs, articles and sales letters so do get in touch to discuss your individual requirements.
When I’m not locked away in my office, I can be found ferrying the kids to school and back, walking our lovely, black Labrador and messing around with my camera (I like to live life on the wild side).
I’m BIG on professional development and spend many hours consuming industry relevant content – blogs, podcasts, books and courses. I’ve also undertaken some formal training (see below) and plan to do more this year (mainly focussing on SEO copywriting).
- The Complete Copywriter (Writers Bureau) 2014
- Breakthrough Copywriting (Andy Maslen Copywriting Academy) 2017
- Inbound Marketing (Hubspot) 2017
- SEO (Hubspot) 2018
I’ve never been keen on having my photo taken – although filters have made this a bit easier (don’t knock it ’til you’ve hit your 40s). So that’s me below, cringing away.
Want to talk? If you’re a small/medium business owner, social media manager or website developer who wants to hand over the writing side of things, we could work well together. Feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the form on my Get in touch page and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
