A creative writer, researcher, journalist and editor with over 10 years’ experience working with words, Lucy has run storytelling workshops in Sri Lanka, taught English in China and was the editor of Vagabond, Bulgaria’s first English-language lifestyle magazine.
Since relocating back to Cornwall, she’s worked with Stranger Collective crafting copy for everyone from homegrown designers and makers to international brands, including The National Trust, Tesco, Somersault Festival, Plymouth University, Investors in People and New Dawn Traders. From attention-grabbing online content to thought-provoking features, she brings a flair for language and an eagle eye for detail to every project to create standout copy that packs a punch.
Outside of the Stranger Collective studio, Lucy’s involved in various creative ventures. A long-time lover of fairy tales, folklore and myth, her first book, The Element Encyclopedia of Fairies (HarperCollins, Aug 2014) has seen her delving into the weird, wonderful and sometimes downright bizarre world of fairyland. She has an MA (dist.) in Professional Writing from Falmouth University and has helped deliver online learning for the Professional Writing Academy and Faber Academy. When she’s not writing, you’ll most likely find her spinning tales in schools and at festivals, organising the LittleFest programme of events to spark young minds at the Penzance Literary Festival, or oogling the latest roadside attraction.
