posh lunches with important people
My name is Lindsay, I think Bristol is a brilliant place to live, I love a well-made Gin & Tonic and my favourite word is select.
I’ve always written stuff. When I was 8, and probably should’ve been on a rope swing somewhere, I was sitting in my bedroom writing. I had several stories read out on Radio Bristol at that age and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I went on to enter writing competitions at University and won a couple of big ones in Vogue and Cosmopolitan which meant I got to travel to London and have some posh lunches with important people, and for the first time see my name printed in a magazine. This gave me the writing bug and throughout my pre-baby career I was always involved in Copywriting or Marketing of some kind.
After I had children, I left my ‘proper’ job so I could enjoy staying at home being splattered in puree and clapping to nursery rhymes, but I kept writing – to feed my creative brain which was in danger of emptying and re-filling itself with the entire Peppa Pig book collection. I wrote a successful Parenting blog for a couple of years before starting my Greetings card range which I was invited to launch on notonthehighstreet.com in 2012 and have been developing ever since.
Now that my youngest of 3 has started school, I am rewarded with a little more time and a lot more headspace which I’m happy to be able to spend Copywriting. If you like what you’ve read and would enjoy seeing what I could write for you, please get in touch.
