Who I am
Hello. I’m Nicola Slavin, a London-based freelance copywriter and marketing professional specialising in digital and social media.
Over the past ten years I’ve worked with and for high-profile brands, artists and venues in the arts, entertainment and publishing industries, including J.K Rowling’s Pottermore, author Roald Dahl, Penguin Random House, King’s Cross, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, top South London visitor attraction The Horniman Museum and the award-winning Royal Court Theatre, as well as corporate clients from property developers Argent to the UK Government.
What I do
Looking for someone to help you plan and execute a digital marketing campaign, project manage your website launch and/or write lots of lovely blog posts, features and incidental copy for your site plus myriad digital/social channels and weekly email newsletters? Or maybe you’re thinking about launching one or two of those afore-mentioned social media channels and have no idea where to start – or even if you should start at all.
All of that is the kind of stuff I do – and more besides. Take a look here if you want to delve a little deeper.
Where I’ve been
Back in the day I studied English and American Studies at the University of Nottingham, where I was also News Editor for the university magazine, Impact. I loved working on that magazine, and it really helped cement my desire to work with words.
I have since completed courses in Journalism (studying the Writing Skills for Journalists course at the London College of Communication) and Creative Writing (at the Mary Ward Centre), and in March 2015 I completed my Diploma in Digital Media and Branding with The Chartered Institute of Marketing.
I have also previously worked as a freelance journalist, contributing to magazines including ShortList, MBA Business, Fresh Direction, online London-based arts and music magazine Who’s Jack and websites including Popjustice, My Village and Spoonfed.
