Kate Duggan Copywriting
Hello. I can write copy for your website, leaflets and other marketing materials. I can also help you to construct your marketing plan, pin down your target audience, craft your voice and tone guidelines, and decide your key messages.
I have more than a decade’s experience as a professional writer. I've written for Sainsbury's Bank, Mothercare, The Co-op and numerous small businesses and charities. I mainly work with organisations who are making a positive difference to their communities, whether that’s a natural beauty business, an eco-retailer, or a children's charity. Please do take a look at my website, http://www.kateduggan.co.uk/, to see some samples of my work. For now, I’ll leave you with a couple of examples of what my clients have to say about me:
"Kate Duggan is incredibly driven and passionate with a natural 'feel' for communications channels, copywriting and comms planning. She has a good eye for creative design and knows what works for a range of different audiences." Sarah Klueter, Former Senior Community Manager at The Co-operative
"Kate's insight and writing experience shines in all her articles. I appreciate both attention to detail and excellent customer service, Kate excels at both." Lindsey Hedges, Akamuti
