We've just got results through for the appeal letters you wrote. The charity's target was £108k though they had an 'aspirational' target of £128k and...drum roll... they got a whopping £136k! It's been their most successful unrestricted appeal EVER. Thanks for doing such a great job on what was a demanding brief and process.

On Agency

Margaret is a pleasure to work with and I always know she will add that extra something to the copy that the client is looking for. She writes stylishly, effortlessly and always conscientiously. No freelance copywriting brief is too challenging for Margaret, whether it's technical, financial or lifestyle copy she always gets under the skin of the brief and comes up with the goods.

Margaret is really easy to work with, down to earth, quick to turn things round and there's a zany edge to her writing that makes it stand out from the rest.

I wanted to drop you a note about the Brands brochure.  We like this a great deal: we really think you managed to say something about our services that we would not be able to express ourselves.

I just want to thank you for all your hard work. It has been a long process and we have had amazing feedback from members. It’s great to know we got it right!

Charlotte McNeil


I’ve been through the copy and it’s a thumbs up. So a really big well done to you for translating a complex message into something meaningful in “NetDev” language.  I am so chuffed with it and know that we are now going to have a really fantastic brochure.

Thank you for the support and commitment you have shown helping us put together our new website. We are thrilled with the results. We were particularly impressed with how quickly you understood what we do and how we want to communicate it to the people we work with. You were very quickly able to assess the key messages we wanted to convey and to find a 'voice' that was appropriate for us. Your enthusiasm and energy really helped to drive the project forward and I couldn't recommend you more highly!

I have just returned from the client and thought you would like to know that for a first draft of a new copy treatment - that has never been done before - they thought it was brilliant! So a big well done. I really do appreciate the level of thinking that you have brought to this project.
