I'm a freelance copywriter, scriptwriter, and content writer based in London. I've been stringing sentences together professionally and personally since 2002. I started in broadcasting before moving into digital content in 2010 - taking scriptwriting skills, research skills, organisational skills and the ability to make an excellent cuppa with me.
Fast forward to late 2015 when I became a freelance writer, penning copy, content and scripts. Clients book me for one or a combination of disciplines, depending on what they need. Like a word-based pick 'n' mix. Production experience and video expertise come in handy for writing scripts for campaign films, film treatments and explainer videos, and years spent in education content is pretty useful too.
As a copywriter, I work with agencies, brands and organisations on commercial and charity campaigns and help start-ups and small businesses with their TOV. Top agencies I’ve worked with include Bisqit, Hill+Knowlton Strategies, Hugo & Cat, Ogilvy PR and Fetch.
Personal creative projects include writing and directing the short film Double Word Score, which was screened at UK and US festivals and won ‘Best Comedy’ at The Open Door Short Film Showcase 2015.

HELLO, I’M BECKY MATTHEWS
Writing that's always on point
I love helping people tell their stories and using humour to make connections. That’s not to say I don’t have a serious side too. I never shy away from a tough subject, or a serious campaign.
Whether it ’s engaging campaign copy, a concise and creative explanation of how your business works, or a persuasive article you’re after: I’ll deliver the words you need to reach your audience, and keep them coming back.
