I'm a freelance writer, editor and content strategist. I mainly write copy, but also sometimes code. I care about creating great content.
I also write an email newsletter about the things I've been seeing, reading and thinking every fortnight. You can sign up to receive it below.
“Without a doubt, one of the most talented people I have worked with. What a pleasure.” — Carly Marsh, Brunel University

I work with people to tell stories, help users and build brands through websites, apps and print. Everything I do can be roughly split into two categories — creative and strategy, although the two are rarely separate.
Every project I work on starts with me researching your business, your brand and your project, understanding the story you want to tell, and the challenges you face. This usually means I'll ask a fair few questions, but it's all in the name of making the words work harder.
Copywriting, blog content, editorial, microcopy, social media, letters, emails and presentations.
Editorial workflow, brand and style guides, tone of voice, UX research, user journey, information architecture, content templates and communications planning.
Oh, and there's training…
Whether it's a one-to-one or a workshop, I can work with you to help you improve your website, publication, app or just about anything that leans on language to do its job. Let's talk.
Hi! I'm Freddie Harrison. I'm a Writer, Editor & Content Strategist. I believe in creating great content, telling the right story and clarity in communication above all else.
Previously, I was Web Editor for Arts University Bournemouth, where I also helped to launch the multi-award-winning kscope. Before that, I was Features Editor for iCreate Magazine. Before that, I got my degree in Multi-Media Journalism from Bournemouth University.
I live and work out of a cottage in South Northamptonshire, accompanied by a small dog.
