Lucy van Biljon: Course tutor
Copywriter | Proofreader | PR manager | Journalist
MEN Media | Smooth Radio | Lucidity Writing
I am a tutor on CMP’s copywriting course.
I’m a freelance copywriter, proofreader and copy-editor with 20 years of professional writing experience.
My copywriting work covers web copy, blog posts, magazine articles, award entries and product descriptions for clients large and small across the UK.
I love making wonderful words work for businesses, organisations and fellow entrepreneurs.
During my PR career, I worked with both B2C and B2B clients ranging from Marks & Spencer to Lurpak. I was always the go-to proofreader thanks to my eagle eyes and pickiness over punctuation.
I joined the Manchester Evening News straight from university as a news reporter covering everything from high-profile court cases to pop star press conferences.
I have a BA in English, postgraduate diploma in newspaper journalism, the NCTJ national qualification, and the CMP distinction diplomas in copywriting, and proofreading and editing.
I am a member of the Professional Copywriters’ Network and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP).
