About Me

Copywriter London

Think of me as your outsourced marketing department. Whether you’re full of content ideas or perceive yourself short on success stories, I will design an online marketing strategy that makes sure your business is getting the attention it truly deserves.

I previously owned a thriving events planning business which I successfully marketed until I became insanely busy. Turns out, it’s difficult to find time to promote your brand whilst working across 4 different time zones. My experience identified a need for a trusted individual offering completely personalised copywriting & content marketing services for businesses.

CUE: the birth of Lucy Lettersmith.

Every brand has a story.
I’ll help you tell yours.

How? By writing compelling copy that engages your existing fans, develops your audience and builds brand awareness online.

Since 2005, my love affair with words has seen me write creative content for brands of all shapes and sizes. Over the years my content marketing has developed strong links with the media. I’ve dealt with reactive enquiries in the public sector and I’m also experienced in fronting televised press, radio and other interviews. I’ve also written things (under other people’s names) that have appeared in publications such as The Guardian, The Huffington Post, and Cosmopolitan Magazine.

My copywriting clients include a host of people who wouldn’t want it revealed that they have a ghostwriter. I’ve written on behalf of a business advice guru, a renowned chef, a stylist to the stars, an international events planner, a photographer, an artist, a tv interior designer and two musicians who’ve sung their way to seriously high in the charts. My ghostwriting has extended to books about ???? and ??????, with another due for publication later this year.

Whatever the size or nature of your project; I’ll get my teeth into your marketing strategy. If you need words, I’d love to be the one writing copy for you!

I occasionally jot down news and offer free content marketing tips via email. If you'd like to sign up, I promise not to bombard you. Oh, and I take your privacy seriously, so please check out at my Privacy Policy for details.

What other people say

  • With a series of bullet points I scribbled on a notepad, a brief chat and limited time Lucy delivered the story of rock band ‘Ledbetter’ in a superb, engaging press release for the band’s debut album ‘Wait For Us’. She very quickly understood the right angle and found the right words to draw attention to the band effectively. Her writing is of the highest quality and the press release was delivered with excellent use of images and in the appropriate format for immediate use. Lucy is a pleasure to work with, highly efficient and professional who works to deadlines, clearly and accurately interpreting the brief. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for sophisticated copy for their business.

    I was so thrilled to have Lucy come on board. First we worked together to make sure that my existing marketing strategy was right for where I want to take the business.  Lucy also made some fantastic suggestions about how we could be pushing things even further forward. Ultimately, I have the final say of course, but it is very rare that I have to amend anything in Lucy’s drafts.  She fully understands my brand and knows how to communicate with my target audience.  I think it is vital to work with someone who genuinely shares the passion and love you have for your business and that person is definitely Lucy – I feel really at ease leaving her to manage my marketing strategy!
