Zahra in a few words

Every brand has a story to tell, and I've been helping businesses do just that through a blend of journalistic skills and creative copywriting. It's all about finding the right words and tone of voice to fit your needs, and my writing can take on pretty much any style required - from formal to colloquial and everything in between.

As a copywriter and copyeditor, my clients have included Pizza Hut, Citroën, Rolls Royce, and Otis Elevators, and I am confident writing web copy, blogs, press releases, brochures, adverts and whatever else is thrown at me.

An NCTJ qualified journalist, I have experience working at some of the most prestigious media outlets and publications in the UK, including BBC online, the Independent and i newspapers, the Press Association and Stylist magazine.

My goal is always to make every topic engaging and readable, no matter how dry or technical the subject matter. As one client said - "I'm amazed by how you've managed to make tips on defrosting a freezer sound so interesting".

So if you're looking for a wordsmith to tell your story, get in touch today. Can't wait.
