Who I am
I’m Alison Bowyer, a Freelance Copywriter living and working in Milton Keynes.
What I do
I write words for business. Mainly blogs and website content, but I’ve also written guides, brochures, leaflets and sales letters.
How I work
Working part-time from my home office, I offer a professional copywriting service to small and medium businesses who understand the value of copywriting, give constructive feedback and pay up on time.
I’m BIG on professional development and spend many hours consuming industry relevant content – blogs, podcasts, books and courses. I’ve also undertaken some formal training (see below) and plan to do more this year.

- Breakthrough Copywriting (Andy Maslen Copywriting Academy) 2017
- Inbound Marketing (Hubspot) 2017

Why I do what I do
I haven’t always been a copywriter. Prior to having my kids, I was part of an internal comms team in one of the big banks. Until I went all mumsy, had my kids and took a career break.
I always assumed I would go back to work in a corporate setting when the kids were older. But life threw me a curveball when my younger son was diagnosed with autism, just weeks after my dad died from dementia.
It was only when I was drafting a letter to the local authority requesting a place at a special school for my son that my love of writing came back to me and I started looking into the possibility of becoming a freelance writer.
When you see loved ones struggle with words, you realise the value of them. In this digital age, we have so many ways to communicate but words are at the heart of everything. I like to write words that communicate clearly and easily, building connection with the audience.
