Hello, I'm Sarah...
Always passionate about books, writing and just generally all things to do with words, I have progressed from studying English and Drama at Birmingham University to a much-loved career in writing and editing.
I enjoyed almost 10 years working for the John Lewis Partnership (JLP) - designing, researching, writing and editing one of their internal magazines. I also spent time as Editor of all branch internal magazines.
Prior to JLP, I spent three years working for a trade magazine for the consumer healthcare industry.
Since leaving JLP and having children, words have still found their way to the forefront of my life! I spent two years as a Clerk within a primary school, carried out various voluntary copywriting and editorial projects and now, as my children are a little older, I have turned a dream into reality and become a freelance copywriter, proofreader and copy-editor.
As a copywriter, I provide a service to individuals and businesses throughout the UK. My work to date includes web content for start-ups as well as regular blogs, case studies, award entries, social media posts and articles for a PR company on a variety of topics, ranging from healthcare to employability.
As proofreader and copy-editor, I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) and I follow their Code of Practice.
I'm very much looking forward to using my skills, knowledge and passion for the English language to ensure your project is the best it possibly can be.
We were fortunate enough at Kineton Green Primary School to have Sarah as our Clerk to Governors for over two years. She proved to be particularly adept at recording the accurate Minutes of 12 governors discussing school matters often riddled with names and acronyms. Her presentation, grammar and eye for detail were always outstanding. She was a valuable member of the governing board.
