Freelance Copywriters We Recommend

A copywriter writes the text of advertisements or publicity material. If you hire a copywriter for your advertising/PR needs, you will pay them directly. We are only referring you to them. We do not hire them for you.
NOTE ABOUT UNKNOWN COPYWRITERS OFFERING THEIR SERVICES ONLINE: There is no licensing agency for copywriters and there are many online now who are NOT professional copywriters. Anyone with a computer and an Internet connection can put up a website, and pretend to have experience in a particular field.
A WARNING ABOUT LETTING YOUR PUBLISHER COPYWRITE YOUR ADVERTISING/PR MATERIALS: Many print on demand publishers and publishing service providers now claim ownership of their author’s files (what they call the “production files”) even though authors paid THEM for the service. We call this a “forced marriage” because it makes it almost impossible for an author to move to another publisher someday, even if they are unhappy with their current publisher. We strongly recommend NOT paying a publisher create your advertising/PR slogans and materials. Freelance copywriters don’t try to claim ownership of an author’s files.

All I can really say is that I will use Kristine for every edit / copyedit job I have both personally and professionally. She knocked it out of the park! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!”

“Kristine did editorial work on a manuscript for me, and did such a great job the first time that I used her again on the next manuscript I published. She is very professional and will work with your needs and goals in mind. She will offer suggestions and collaborate if you ask her for her professional opinion. I highly recommend Kristine for any copy writing or copy-enhanced work!”
