My Story

Over 20 years’ experience as a freelance writer, editor, proofreader

and reviewer across a diverse range of subjects.

Hello, I’m Claire Hewson.


No project is too big or small for me.  Whether you need a one-off sales email or a complete website, just brief me and I’ll get straight to work.

My path as a writer began one rainy day in a Welsh holiday cottage when I was about seven years old.  Sitting in a gloomy living room with a Peter Rabbit exercise book and a collection of scented rubbers I wrote the stories of Reggie Rabbit.  More stories followed about fairies, witches, wizards etc, and so the spell was cast.  Fast forward past student days at Leeds University to the late 1990s when I wrote features for The Lady and the children’s magazine Aquila as well as articles for company magazines and fillers for the Cambridge News.

My copywriting experience:

I have a Digital Marketing Certificate and a Diploma in Copywriting from The Blackford Centre


I’ve worked on  many copywriting projects (see my portfolio for examples) . My clients include:

Donna Coulling, 

NDC Global Auditors

The Roald Dahl Society.


I’ve written website copy for the BAFTA nominated composers Barnabas & Arnold which you can view on their homepage.


For me, life is about learning new skills and encountering fresh challenges. That’s why I know I can produce copy that’s right for you, whatever your business!

Published writing:

I write regular articles, book and product reviews for Early Years Educator, Practical Preschool, Primary Teacher Update, Creative Steps and Teachit Primary (I’m also on the editorial board of Primary Teacher Update). In addition I’ve completed projects as a proofreader, freelance editor and resource writer for Macmillan ELT.  I am a qualified primary school teacher, ESL teacher and adult education tutor.  For me, copywriting and teaching are closely linked.  Copywriting, like teaching, involves learning.   It’s about researching new topics and then communicating what I’ve discovered to others.  There’s nothing more enjoyable than the challenge of making a subject interesting and accessible to a particular audience.


If you come to me I can promise you absolute dedication to learning your brand and style in order to produce fresh, outstanding copy that delivers what you set out to achieve.
