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?

Amazing, obviously.

Things I’ll always be:

  • Polite and helpful
  • Reliable and punctual
  • Results-focused and straight-talking
  • Pro-active
  • 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.

Can I check you out elsewhere?

Sure. I’m @LorrieHartshorn on Twitter and I’m also on LinkedIn: Lorrie Hartshorn Copywriter.
