My Story

Claire Davies Greedy Wordsmith Food Writer Bag
Claire Davies Consulting Narrative Strategy

I provide copywriting services, consultancy and training to organisations across England. Together we explore the stories that give your brand meaning; both internally and as part of your marketing plan. I love showing organisations how authentic storytelling can help them to build a successful business around the right people.

My previous career in the NHS gave me a unique perspective of individual psychology – how emotion, language and experience shape our thinking and behaviour. Combined with robust copywriting techniques, this insight enables me to construct a clear brand message that acts to inspire, engage and create momentum for your audience.

Alongside my work with business owners, I am a published food writer and a passionate foodie. Just like the stories we tell, food plays a crucial part in drawing people together and cementing meaningful relationships.

In essence, it all comes to down to a love of people – the businesses we run, the communities we create and the food we share. The blog is where I choose to nurture my regular writing habit - sharing useful business content, food and drink recipes and anything else that feels important along the way.

  • Improve Your Copy – Write A Copy Brief
    Whether you are hiring a copywriter or crafting your own copy, it is vital to lay out a clear copy brief of what you are trying to achieve, how, and why. The majority of my clients are sole traders or operate within small, independent businesses. They have little experience of the copywriting process, or how to get the best out of the person who is writing their copy.  To address this, I developed a process which enables me to collate all of the knowledge required to successfully complete a project. Today I want to share that process with you.

    Have you hired someone to help you build a shiny new website for your business? For many business owners, this means writing sparkling new copy to go with it.

Whether you are writing copy for your services page, a blog post or a couple of sentences to go on a leaflet - there are a few simple tips that can help to make your copy engaging. In this post, I want to talk about the importance of benefits over features, and how asking yourself So What? will make all the difference.

  • Getting Around Creative Blocks – Living a Creative Life
    If you want to write but don't know where to start, what do you do? I write for a living. Or I'm paid to talk about writing. Before writing became the way I paid my bills, it was one of many creative outlets. My need to be creative is as much part of me as my shaved hair and tendency to talk too much. But. Even the most productive among us face writer's block. Overwhelmed with ideas, the fast-moving pace of a stressful age, even electric lighting and the faint buzz of technology that feels inescapable  - all can stifle our natural ability to be creative. This has become such a popular topic of conversation that I've started asking people for their own tips on beating the block. Here are three of the most common, I hope you find them useful.
