Sarah Burnett – Writer and Communications Specialist

Putting the right content in the right places

Lost for words or ideas? Stuck for time? I can help. I’m a copywriter and communications consultant, with over 10 years’ experience of helping private- and public-sector clients. Based in Edinburgh, I work with organisations across the UK.

I develop communication strategies and messaging; plan and write websites, annual reports, PR materials, social media, and any other content you need; and manage projects. I can make your life easier, your story more compelling, and your audiences more engaged.

A recurrent theme in my work is turning complex ideas into digestible content. Law, finance, life sciences or academic research – however difficult or detailed the subject, I can quickly identify angles to help you ‘sell’ your story. Without dumbing down or oversimplifying what you do, I can create you a clear, clean narrative that will engage different audiences through different channels.

Previous experience includes journalism, editing magazines, corporate communications, a Law degree from the University of Cambridge, a recent MSc in Marketing, and various awards and prizes. If you think I could help you, please get in touch.
