Laura Marie Brown


Hello. I am a freelance copywriter, PR, Editor, Strategist, Proofreader and Social Media Consultant.

I work in arts and culture, technology, retail and tourism but my approach is consistent across the board.

What I do is simple, really.

I combine good writing with understanding audiences.

If you know your audience you know how to get your message across.

A freelance copywriter is one of those really useful things. Once you use one you wonder how you got the job done before. Basically we come in, use all our expertise and experience to make sure what you’re doing sounds great, connects with your target audience and is being sold properly. We articulate what you’re doing, simple as that. I’m an award-winning journalist, a communications expert and most importantly a cracking writer. Have a look through my portfolio page, I update it as soon as a finish a copywriting job so it’s always up to date.

I write a lot of different things (this is the joy of being a freelance writer, really). You’ll find I write blogs, articles, scripts, reports and website content. I’m really good at taking a lot of complicated and technical information and turning it into something clear, concise and engaging. Something that’s easy to understand means it’s simpler to get your point across.

Read my blog below, it’s all about creative business, freelance working, being a copywriter and cat pages (cos y’know it’s the internet). I’ve been known to present these ideas in workshops and things like that. If you’re looking for someone to talk about stuff like this, I have form.

You might be right in the middle of a project, you might be right at the beginning; where you are if you need help or support from a freelance copywriter then drop me a line at


Can’t figure out what to blog? Hire someone else

There’s something quite inspiring about having to develop ideas for blog topics on a weekly basis. OK, I’m well aware that where I’ve written “inspiring” most people would say “terrifying”. The problem is, for those who find coming up with blog topics akin to torture, coming up with ideas, angles, perspectives and fresh content on […]

For those who stay – 21st century northern identity

Sometimes it’s harder to stay than it is to leave. We are rebuilding the north, so why does it still, so often , feel like we’re judged for staying? Those who have stayed or moved back to the cities in the north where they grew up or went to university are often peered down at […]

Happy birthday to me – four years of freelance

Four years ago it was just about to snow. After two or three winters with heavy snowfall it wasn’t a huge surprise. But in this slightly too warm November it makes winter 2010 seem even further removed, even more un-tangible. It snowed, there was ice and a biting wind and I had a vicious cold. […]
