I'm your copywriter.
(if you prefer copy with a splash of personality)
You believe in your brand. And I can write compelling, purposeful copy that will show others why they should believe in it too.
Top 3 things to know about me.
I'm currently a full-time senior copywriter for a global agricultural brand.
With almost 5 years under my belt, I know the ins and outs of agency life.
I've got a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing & English Language & Literature hanging on my wall.
You choose the service.
I deliver it.
Good copy converts passive readers to high-paying customers--whatever the medium. These are just a few in my wheelhouse:
Print and digital ads
Show, don't tell. That's the old adage for good storytelling, whether you need a vivid voiceover, a memorable blog post or a fresh voice for your brand.
Insightful interviews, unique angles and timely profile or feature articles that meet your deadline? I can help in a pinch.

Greta Chiu, Editor at Greenhouse Canada
"Kate is an absolute pleasure to work with. Her talent for storytelling is evident in the way she skillfully weaves narratives from multiple sources. Having freelanced features for us on multiple occasions, Kate's strong work ethic and professionalism make her a dependable source of support amid an often hectic print production schedule."
Stephanie Gordon, former editor of Fruit and Vegetable magazine
"I was an editor looking for solid freelancers and Kaitlin came highly recommended - and for good reason! She is a thoughtful, intelligent writer who brings life to any assignment. What I valued the most was her ability to communicate any hiccups, keep me updated if the story changes (and it usually does), and always submit her work before deadline. Kaitlin is truly a partner when it comes to realizing a common vision - she cares, she’s diligent, and she is reliable. She truly is a gem and I recommend her without hesitation."
Mila Maric Poirier, Technical Writer at Kenna
