This is what we got up to together.

Cal Chikwendu Freelance Copywriter Australia

The images below give you a taster of what I did.
Want other examples? Give me a shout and I’ll send some over. 

As well as the examples here, I’ve also written about plenty of health and wellbeing topics. Mainly as part of my roles for Government (UK|Aus). 
I keep it separate to avoid conflict of interest. (My Gov. roles have been employment in Health Promotion leadership – not as a freelance copywriter).
Want to know more – get in touch.

BTW: copy is sometimes tweaked by the client over time

Client - Coworth

COWORTH.CO

SEO website copy

Edwin is a man on a mission. He’s the super committed founder of Coworth – a registered NDIS disability service provider. He wanted his website to show that everyone is worthy of a positive, meaningful and independent life, no matter their background. It was a quick-flash turnaround
but I’m so grateful he chose me as his word-slinger. 

Freelance Copywriting Project - Website copy for Hot Property Copy

HOT PROPERTY COPY

SEO Website copy

Emma wanted her website to show that real estate copy can be friendly, effective and authentic without being clichéd and bland. A fun project challenging some of those bullsh*t buzzwords. Loved working with Emma but I still don’t know where she found all her energy for little kids, her business, and working with hubby on his business. I take my hat off to her.

People say the loveliest things

Working with Cal was a true partnership. She wrote copy for a Maori health business working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. She took the time to get to know the client and understand the business. We were extremely pleased and incredibly impressed with Cal’s skill. I love her commitment to her work and to First Nations peoples.
Jan McMath
Director | Branding Kaitiaki
Teha Branding

Cal wrote our Tone of Voice Branding Guide and website words for our new Jamaican food business and café bar. She was amazing to work with, full of ideas and did an exceptional job.

Damian Rosevelt
Founder | Taste Jamaica

Cal delivered exactly what I was looking for and met the tight deadline. She worked with me to find my message and voice. Cal was a pleasure to work with and I’ll continue to use her for future projects.

Edwin Oliver
Founder | Coworth

Cal was absolutely fantastic and easy to work with, responsive and collaborative. I was really happy with the completed job. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a stress free, positive experience with a copywriter who works their magic to create content that speaks to your audience.

Phi Vo
Director | Registered Migration Consultant | Lead Law Wrangler
Catalyst Migration

Superb and very affordable. It is my pleasure working with Cal. She has a broad knowledge of copywriting and advised me thoroughly on my business adventure. I definitely recommend her.

Raymond K
Founder | SUFI Spice

I recently worked with Cal on a highly sensitive copywriting project. I needed someone I could trust, who had the know how to write 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!

Kate Toon
Founder | Kate Toon Clever Copywriting

We chose Cal as we wanted an ethical copywriter to write about circular economy and her work was impeccable, her approach was very accurate and authentic and she managed to turn this content into a very interesting article for us, we will definitely recommend her work!

Daniela Sierra Toro
Marketing Coordinator | YTAO

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!

Emma Lunardi

Founder | Hot Property Copy

Cal is phenomenal. She nailed the brief on her first go. She moulded her style to the conversational tone of voice we needed and the articles were exactly what we needed. I’ll be using her again for our next project and would highly recommend her to anyone who’s after a copywriter who takes care of, and responsibility for, crafting quality content. It’s rare to find someone who takes such good care of what they’re doing. I’ll be holding onto Cal with two hands!

Sarah Spence

Wordsmith and Director | Content Copywriting

Cal has put in a huge effort to research and familiarise herself with our industry, which meant we could focus on our work and feel comfortable knowing Cal could work independently and produce accurate and relevant content. Cal is super friendly and is a pleasure to work with. Nothing has been too difficult, and she has over delivered on everything!

Dr Glen Baker and Dr Danneil Wood

Owners | Jacaranda Dental

These blog articles are soooo fantastic! I mean I had no doubt they’d be awesome, but these are totally spot on. They knock our competition out of the water in terms of their content. We are THRILLED!

Jarrod Chilcott

Owner, Chilcorp Recycling

Cal cast her eyes on my clients ‘About page’ draft and weaved her copyediting magic.
I was having a hard time making it sound any better so was happy to get a new set of eyes on it.
She took the piece from cheesy to charming, fast! My client was impressed and she made me look like I’d absolutely nailed it.

Bec Djapovic

Founder | Bec Djapovic

Cal has done lots of copywriting for us on healthy living subjects. Cal’s sensitive approach, skills and attention to detail made the task easy. The writing she produced really helped engage the target audiences and win awards for the projects. Cal went above and beyond. Her energy and enthusiasm was infectious. She’s a star!

Sharon Dale

Manager, Derby County Football Community Trust

Cal wrote our promotional materials. I was lost with what to write but Cal spoke to some of our young people immediately grasped the concepts. Her writing was perfect to attract kids to our youth group (teenagers from difficult backgrounds hanging on the streets). Cal has a great sense of humour which comes through in her writing. She’s lovely and friendly to work with.

Michelle Kendrick

Founder, ECHO (Social Enterprise empowering young people)

I’m a happy dancer too (big time)

Thank you to some of the incredible people who’ve helped me in a big or small way: Kimani (soul mate), extra special TCCS copybeasts | Sanctuary Point copy-crew, Sandy (web queen), BlackIllustrations, Photographers on Unsplash and the fabulous clients who work with me.

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 humanity to the planet and everything in between. I stand with Black Lives Matter.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware this website may contain images or names of people who have passed away.
