Our story

If you laid out all the words we’ve tapped out over the past 14 or so years, they might just stretch to the moon.

It all started in 2007, when Sara moved her family back to Sydney from the UK – where she had teamed up with copywriting legends Writers Ltd.

She set up a Writers Sydney outpost (in a slightly damp spare bedroom) and started cold calling.

As jobs started flowing in, Sara added more Writers to the collective. She also welcomed Katrina – a pivotal piece of the puzzle to manage the fast-growing number of clients and deadlines.

We’re very proud those on the other end of those first few calls, emails and hard-won referrals are still our clients. Because our story is not just about words, it’s about people – and telling their stories.
