Copywriting? Really? Like Peggy Whats-her-face in Mad Men?

Well, I love working with creative agencies and any kind of company if they're looking for a writer with wit and charm who doesn't really do the corporate jargon thing. I don't really mind what I'm writing about as long as I'm free to be concise, informative & interesting.

Whether I write short, long, silly or serious is for you to decide. All I ask is that you don't ask me to write things like "we're delighted to bring this underwear solution to market".

I've written for agencies like Karmarama in London and Frame in Glasgow. For aquariums, science centres, immersive theatre shows, universities...and Plusnet. 


Here's the kind of thing I can do:

Articles about things like unicorns, whisky, and mountain-climbing.


Clean, clear website copy with energy.

Giving classic fairytales a funny modern spin.

I put all my work, where possible, on my LinkedIn.

“I am constantly being asked to get James back in again. Charming, talented, and a great writer to boot. We can’t recommend James highly enough.”
