Welcome to agoodwriteup – a freelance copywriting venture.
Within the last 5 years, I have worked with a variety of individual clients and organisations to ensure that their ideas for well-structured and creative writing are presented in a professional and inspiring manner to produce… agoodwriteup.
Whilst the services of agoodwriteup are wide-ranging and tailored to meet the needs of my clients, my values for this venture are constant, clear and based upon the fact that agoodwriteup is just me – and I’m proud of my work.
You can read a handful of testimonials for yourself through my website, or you can see what people have to say about my work on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
It’s the agoodwriteup philosophy that if an individual or organisation reveals mistakes or carelessness in their written representation, then it would be fair to doubt the true professionalism, care and pride in the product or service they claim to offer.
The services of agoodwriteup ensure that clients can avoid this common problem in a friendly, efficient and effective way.

What clients have to say about agoodwriteup..
When I posted on LinkedIn about wanting to get a ghostwriter for my autobiography and business book, I was inundated with requests and recommendations. Jo, your name came up more than once in those recommendations, and I was impressed when you made a clear effort to contact me as a result, simply just to say hello. I was also impressed with your honesty in what you advised me I should generally look for in taking the time to find the right ghostwriter for me. Me being me, I trusted my gut feeling, and I just felt straight away that you were the right person for me. You travelled down to London where we met for the first time in a bar, with neither of us knowing what to expect from the other, but you were relaxed and down to earth, which made me feel really relaxed in return and easily able just to talk to you and tell you my story. This whole experience working with you on my book has been an absolute pleasure, firstly because I thouroughly enjoyed it and we both clearly had a great time, and secondly because the results have come out even better than expected… I feel we’ve created a masterpiece in what’s been achieved. To be able to take notes and ask questions and just generally get to know me in such a short space of time, and then turn your work into this wonderful reality where every time I read what you’ve produced it’s like I’m right back there living that life… it’s insane! How you’ve managed to capture and bring to life all of those experiences… it’s such an achievement – for both of us. I can’t help but smile – and laugh – when I read the book. This shows how good you are at what you do, and the additional touches you’ve put to things surrounding my book really show your character. I know you’ll want to put all of this on your website, but these are my genuine, honest thoughts I’d tell you anyway. We connect so much on this great level, and for that reason, we’ll be working together on many many publications in the future – my writer for life!
Caring, Dynamic & Trusted! Although these are our firm’s core values, I couldn’t think of any better way to describe Jo. Finding someone whose work ethic aligns with your own is invaluable. Jo has an energy and enthusiasm for her work and is highly professional. Being able to make seemingly ‘dull’ topics spring to life is a skill, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jo and her writing services to anybody.
We were absolutely delighted with the work Jo did for us in writing for our new website. It took all the endless hours of head scratching away from us and enabled us to get on with everything else in running our business. We wish her lots of success with her copywriting business!
Jo managed to do in a couple of days what would have taken our leadership team the best part of two weeks in preparing and organising copy for our soon to be launched new website. It was a pleasure to have her as part of our team even for a short period, and I can highly recommend Jo if you need someone with fantastic copywriting skills.
Jo is a highly skilled, inspirational and reliable professional. She will always be a delight to do business with.
We had been looking for quite some time for a partner to take our organisation’s story and turn it into something wonderful, whilst maintaining the professionalism we must demonstrate, but also adding some real colour and flow to our work. Jo bounced into our office and we immediately knew we had something different. Jo’s process is made easy. The turnaround of her work is really quick and the output quality is very high. Everyone uses the word “partnership” flippantly these days, but the work between Kingdom and agoodwriteup became exactly that. Our words are precious to us, but Jo has taken them to a new level and made them precious to her as well. One very happy partner!
Jo is a fantastic writer and her expertly crafted work has made a big difference for our clients and our company, and helped potential customers engage with our material. Would definitely recommend!
A truly outstanding copywriter. An absolute pleasure to deal with and work with. A clear passion and professionalism shown that we should all strive to achieve. Jo was a clear choice for all of our professional copy and our ‘go to’ recommendation for all of our clients.
It’s easy to see why people go to Jo when they need help promoting either themselves or their ventures. Her bespoke writing style and warm professional manner always get the best out of each individual. Jo supported me with my PoleFunk business for several years, and has since done all she can to ensure that my public profile as an International Figure Competitor, Personal Trainer, Nutrition Adviser and Tanning Technician is sharp enough to get those sponsors and clients rolling in!
I’m never usually short of something to say but when it comes to writing it down it’s good to have a critical friend. Jo has always been there to rephrase, reword, remove a comma, add an apostrophe or change a spelling. She understands what I am trying to say and helps me to put it down on paper. Jo makes my words more accurate, engaging and powerful.
During our work together in Grenada at the Jason Roberts Foundation, Joanne was an excellent detailed and creative teacher whose presentation skills were the best I have seen. Her delivery to both children and teachers in a training environment were excellent. She looked to change the way teachers in thought about teaching practices and I would shout from the roof tops to recommend her to any other organisation.
Having worked with Joanne on a number of bespoke projects, the outcomes are always as desired; happy, engaged and challenged groups of children. Jo has helped provide activities that reinforce learning as fun and that have engaged dichotomous groups of pupils with a range of social and academic needs.
Joanne is an absolute pleasure to work with. When I first met her I was blown away at her openness, professionalism, work ethic and warmth. Jo greets everyone with the biggest smile which is backed up with confidence and a vast knowledge. Joanne gets results, on budget, on time and always with your objective in mind and achieved. I look forward to a continued relationship with Jo!
If I am ever lost for words then Jo is the person I go to! Jo has helped me many times in my professional career and personal life. She is very good at writing in a clear and concise way. She is also brilliant at re-writing existing text in a positive and engaging style. In addition, I have personally observed Jo working as a teacher on many occasions and she inspires me as well as the class in front her! I know she has made a difference to a lot of young people’s lives and changed their experience of education. I have often said that if I had children Jo would be the only person I would want to teach them. Jo has been a very supportive colleague and has become a great friend.
We have used Jo’s expertise in the fields of language and education in order to fully ensure that our products and services are reaching our target audience in schools effectively. She works quickly and efficiently and maintains great consultation with colleagues.
Joanne has presence that is for sure. I had an initial meeting for the book I was writing and she really put me at ease and guided me through all the points I needed to go through. As much as anybody may say they feel comfortable having somebody write about you is unnerving, but Joanne has a great gift to make me feel at ease – well recommended!
Jo has been working with RJF Associates Ltd and Ynot Aspire since 2014 and has provided a genuine passion for making a difference to the lives of young people through the use of language that empowers and connects them to the causes which matter most. As a working partner, Jo has always contributed honesty and passion to her work. Looking forward to working with agoodwriteup long into the future!
After retiring from football, suddenly dealing with the “real world” was fairly daunting, but I was lucky enough to be put into contact with Jo. With her guidance and vast experience in education (sports in particular), I was able to plan and organise the path I wanted my professional work to go down, and now I am fully confident of what I need to do to succeed away from football and market myself effectively. Not only is Jo extremly good at what she does, but her enthusiasm and personality makes her a delight to be around.
Five years after first working with Jo on a brilliant Teacher Training and Development programme that she set up and ran for the Foundation in Grenada, I have made a point of going to her to discuss all-things education and writing for our organisation. I trust Jo to give me an honest and professional opinion, and to do a great job of applying herself to the projects I want her involved in.
Girls Out Loud not only benefits from Jo’s brilliant writing skills, but also from her being one of our amazing Big Sister teenage girl mentors as well. I highly recommend Jo in whatever she puts her mind/hand to, having great confidence that she will deliver with passion, style, wit and success.
Do you want an edge? True attention to detail? New perspective on your content? Perhaps a burst of creativity? Jo can deliver. She has the skill to interpret what you’re trying to say and will bring your written words to life – not overlooking the fact that they will also be absolutely grammatically correct! Nothing gets past Jo. These days I find her lingering in the back of my mind when I write independently… “Jeez, I better pay attention to my work or she’ll have me!” Joking aside, Jo is professional, honest and extremely easy to work with. I will certainly be working with her for some time to come.
I am eternally grateful to Jo for helping me make my writing dreams become a reality. Whether you are looking for professional blogs or assistance in writing your books or lectures, I have no hesitation in recommending Jo. She is very professional and has a natural ability to understand and interpret your thoughts, and can put those ideas into words that your readers will relate to. I can honestly say if wasn’t for Jo’s professional guidance, I would not have over 100,000 people interacting daily with the written practices of my global movement, “Kindness Matters”! Thank you “Ghosty” for making my dreams a reality, and I look forward to starting my autobiography – along with many more books – with you.
What can I say about agoodwriteup? Talented, professional, reliable, outstanding… these are the first few words that spring to mind to answer that question. I am always astonished by Jo’s depth of knowledge about the best use of language, and her ability to draw the best out of people in this way. As a professional colleague of Jo’s over the years, I have been very grateful to have a person of such strength of character to advise and support me in my own development. Honest, thorough, encouraging and thoughtful… these are all traits I would use to describe Jo and her work. She is highly proficient and effective in project management and demonstrates leadership qualities that build impressive and positive relationships and work environments with clients and colleagues alike. Jo has helped me to adapt my own writing capabilities to promote deeper, original thinking, and has always suggested practices for my future development and application when I go these things alone. agoodwriteup is a phenomenon based around Jo’s intelligence and passion for her subjects, which combined with clearly organised and well-planned practices makes for a great recipe of success! I would highly recommend agoodwriteup to anyone who wants bright, enthusiastic and highly skilled professionalism.
Jo has been writing blogs to promote the Capstone Foster Care national brand for over a year now. Her writing is insightful, clever and often ‘laugh out loud’ funny. I’m never sure how she manages to gain such a wealth of imagination to write blogs with such fluency and frequency, but this is truly the sign of a talented writer. Jo is able to take otherwise fairly innocuous or indeed sensitive subjects and make these really come alive for the reader to engage them. Indeed, we have evidence that Jo’s blogs about fostering and everything to do with the process has led to a real spike in hits to our website, and will therefore be a key feature in ensuring that new leads sign up to become foster carers themselves with our organisation. Thank you Jo, your work is truly appreciated and valued by the national Capstone team.
Engaging Jo as our ghostwriter for our soon-to-be-published first book was a natural decision to make after being presented with many options. Her style is relaxing and reassuring, and her attention to detail really brings our story to life in a way we never imagined possible. Early on into our work, Jo had easily captured the essence of Mike’s achievements and his focus, and she fully understands and supports how our Speed of Sight charity will benefit from this book. It’s a pleasure to work with Jo and she’s certainly a best friend to hopeful writers. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Jo’s services to anyone.
