Natalie Baker

Freelance copywriter

Hello there.

 

I'm a freelance copywriter, which means I construct seemingly effortless sentences so you don't have to.

 

Following a degree in Creative Writing, I pursued a career in book publishing, before delving into the world of freelancing.  I've provided my services to The Open University, CIPD, Moss Bros, Unbiased, Achilles, Pure Search and Igloo Books.

 

A versatile and comprehensive writer, my work incorporates anything from corporate reports on HR and recruitment, to topical articles on veganism and period poverty.
