Who am I?
Let’s start with the easy stuff. I’m Lorrie Hartshorn, and I’m a freelance copywriter in Manchester, UK.
I say “Manchester” – I’m actually on the border of Cheshire. No matter, though: if I put my foot down, I can get to town in about half an hour.
What am I like?
I’m nice! Well, I think I’m nice.
I live with my nice little girl in our nice house. When I’m not working, I like reading, running (slowly), drinking coffee, and putting the world to rights.
None of that’s really relevant to my job, but it’s always nice to know you’re dealing with a human being, right?
What am I like to work with?
Things I’ll always be:
- Polite and helpful
- Reliable and punctual
- Results-focused and straight-talking
- Good at what I do
Things I’m not:
- A yes-woman
- A writer of crap content
- A woman with the ability to pull information out of thin air
When you work with me, you work with me. It’s a collaboration, with all sides giving their best to come up with the results we need.
So, if I need something, I’ll ask you. If there’s a problem, I’ll work with you to find a solution.
I’ve not had any complaints about my work yet, so that’s always a good sign.
Where do you work?
I work from home. I’ll always try and get in to see you at least once – usually at the start of the project, when we’re nailing down all the details.
I don’t generally work in-house. Never say never, but I do like my home comforts.
Who are your clients?
I’m niche, but not too niche. I work with:
- Digital agencies
- B2B, trade and industrial brands
Where are your clients?
I work with a lot of clients around the north west: Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire.
It’s not really a preference: it’s just how things have panned out over the years – this is where I’m based, and word of mouth has served me well.
I’m happy to work with clients anywhere in the UK.
