FOR SMALL BUSINESS
I love to write. If you'd asked, I'd have said creative writing was what lit me up, but when I look at what I've poured my time into over the last decade I realise I actually love to write for people and businesses, just in a creative way!
When I made the leap from my day job to building my print hobby into a print business, I bridged the gap with a much-needed income by freelancing as a writer and content creator. I took courses in copywriting and journalism, I read, and read, and read. And I wrote.
I wrote blog posts, articles, site copy and social media content for creative freelancers, health services, stationery brands, a magical kids' magazine, and even a mattress company (who'd have thought mattress companies would become so trendy!), to name a few.
Over the last few years I have mostly written for my print business, Inky and the Beast, and my designer/maker blog, Inky Collective (both of which are now retired). I worked on sales copy, social media content, and even a successful crowdfunding campaign. I wrote oodles of blog posts featuring advice, interviews, workshop reviews, and creative content for my online audience, which stood at about 15k by the end, if you're into that sort of thing.
And now I write for my beloved Silly Heart. Heart-on-sleeve blog posts that I hope will inspire, newsletters that I send to be shared, and social content to be exactly that - social. That, to me, is the heart of good writing. Something that is honest, open, and social with your reader.
"Jen’s advice was invaluable! I was experiencing some real barriers with my creative business and after our first call I already felt so much more hopeful and optimistic about the possibilities.
It wasn’t just that she was lovely and encouraging, her help was also practical and I went away with a clearer direction and understanding of how to get to where I needed to be.
Thanks to Jen it’s all beginning to feel within reach now."

I am now excited to be offering my proofreading, editing and writing services again, but focussed this time on supporting small businesses and creative freelancers. Hooray!
