Ethical copywriter in Canberra
for brands with heart and soul

Hi there change-maker.

Ready to kick butt with crack-a-lacking content

You’re my kind of human.

I write whiz words for value-driven businesses.

Saving you time. Taking you to the next level.

BE THE CHANGE

BRING ON YOUR BOSS SIDE

You’re a force to be reckoned with. Ahead of the game.
People want brands to make a social or environmental impact. It’s big business for small business to have a heart.
You work damn hard at what you do. You need your online presence to work hard too. Don’t play it safe with humdrum copy.
I’m an ethical copywriter. I use bold, bumper words to make cool stuff happen and champion your cause.

In a world that’s wrapped up in hard sell and cheesy sleazy sales tactics, there’s a real opportunity. Kick old school marketing tricks to the kerb. Break the mould. Stand up for change.

Choose words that connect and respect your customers. Show your values and let them decide.

I work across the whole kit and caboodle of social justice.

Our world is changing and what you say matters.

Tempt them with words that make them go Ooooo

A flicker. A moment. A few teeny tiny seconds to connect.
Trillions of websites trying to grab your audience’s wandering attention.

A split second is all it takes for someone to decide if they like you.
You want them to make a whip-cracking decision and fall head over heels at first sight.

Turn looky-loos into customers and sticky-beakers into buyers or bookings. Inject life into your words.

Turn content from complexity into simplicity.

Add a touch of playful and a whole lot of friendly to set their hearts a blazing.

Let’s make something special

Hi there. I’m Cal (she/her)

Cake lover, ethical, inclusive word-slinger and aspiring, wannabe artist.

Sprinkling keywords on a page or splattering paint on a canvas, my style is unpretentious, say-it-like-it-is (honest) and down to earth.

I’m all about keeping it real. I rarely play it safe. But, I take my words seriously. That doesn’t mean bland or boring.

I’m not so good at following rules and I rarely play it safe.

Working with change makers and movers and shakers makes me shnizzle with the drizzle (aka happy). ‘specially when we’re challenging the status quo, thinking outside the box and having fun.

Itching to make change and work together?

I’d be thrilled to bits and pieces to work with you.

I recently worked with Cal on a highly sensitive copywriting project. I needed someone I could trust, who had the know how to write a carefully structured diversity policy, cognisant of the various pitfalls and issues involved.
She was a delight to work with, affable, efficient, always willing to take on board feedback and provided a super polished end product. I’d work with her again in a shot!

Your money makes a difference

Right down to my core, I’m a huge fan of socially minded businesses who do good in the world. And those who stand up and speak out.

Everyone should be free to grow, to have a voice and live their dreams safely and happily.

I’m with you. Making a difference. Having the important, sometimes difficult conversations for change.

Every year I give 50% of my profit smackeroonies to an ethical cause that’s swept me off my feet.

 
I read over the copy many, many, many times and while I loved it the first time, it just gets better and better each time I read it! I am truly ecstatic – it’s all 100% on the mark.
THANK YOU!

I acknowledge and celebrate that I live, work and play on the lands of the Ngunnawal people and the lands of the oldest living culture known to the world.

I honour this privilege and responsibility with respect, humility and curiosity. I appreciate the wisdom, diversity and innovation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of seeing and being, and their elders past and present. Always was. Always will be.

Diversity is a key part of our history, culture, and identity. I support work across the whole kit and caboodle of social impact. From human rights and anti-racism to gender and LGBTQI+ equality, to climate change and everything in between. I stand with Black Lives Matter.
