Hey, I’m Laura

I’ve been a professional writer and marketing consultant since 2010. In this time, I’ve done every content writing job imaginable, from a full-time editor for a culture and listings magazine to an agency-side senior SEO specialist. I’ve worked as a freelancer for small businesses and in an agency working on national and international clients. I specialise in website copywriting services, marketing copywriting and blog strategy. I’m also widely experienced in SEO, meaning I can help increase your search visibility. Bonus points!

As a freelance writer, Manchester is naturally an incredible place to set up shop. There’s no shortage of startups and bold ventures that I would love to work with. I’ve always been very passionate about the clients I help and take a great deal of personal pride in my work. If you’re interested in discussing your next project with me, get in touch for an informal consultation.

Why Out Of Left Field?

In baseball (and softball), the player in the left field has the furthest to throw to first base to get the batter out. For a ball to come ‘out of left field’ is pretty unusual. This is where the idea for my company name came from. Good copy should always be surprising. Cookie cutter nonsense will never get you far, instead, you should aim to rocket something out of left field.

It’s also very fitting at my personal side hustle is softball-related. I run a mobile batting cage called Life’s A Pitch that is available for team training, parties and corporate events. We’re currently taking bookings from March 2019.
