Hi! I’m Sarah and I’m a freelance writer based in Leicestershire.
I’ve worked in the publishing industry for over a decade, in both online and editorial roles, building a varied portfolio of skills and experience – including everything from two hugely successful magazine redesigns to dressing up as Pudsey Bear while attempting to make the biggest greetings card in the world (unsuccessful, unfortunately – we were robbed! – but that’s another story…).
Working as Deputy Editor on Perfect Wedding magazine for three years, I fell in love with the wedding industry and all the creatives who make it so inspiring. It also gave me the perfect opportunity to hone my editorial skills writing for the women’s market and engage with readers, to help provide them with the content they really wanted to see in the magazine each month.
After having my son in 2016, I decided the time was right to take the leap into freelance writing and Word Up was launched.
I'm obsessed with magazines and have a real passion for feature writing. I've written for a range of magazine titles including Tesco Magazine, Mollie Makes, Baby Magazine, Simply Vegan, Perfect Wedding, In The Moment, Harry & Meghan: Royal Wedding Preview, Simply Sewing and Wedding Ideas, enjoying the challenge of adapting my tone to speak to different audiences.
I have also been writing for the web for over 14 years, for market-leading websites inlcuding MadeForMums.com, Original Travel, Family Traveller and Culture Trip, covering everything from the best places to birdwatch in England to the joys of teething, so know exactly how to produce short, snappy copy that really works online.
I'm always looking for new collaborations, so if you'd like to work with me I'd love to hear from you!
