Let me tell your story

Barry Hunt, Wordsmart Communications Ltd

During my 30 years as a journalist and freelance copywriter, my clients have ranged from corner shops to blue-chip companies.

Stories are all about people, and I have had the pleasure of visiting hundreds of professionals, including tattoo artists, house builders, tech entrepreneurs and pilots. I found that these diverse individuals all shared a passion for what they do.

As a professional freelance copywriter, I have the flexibility and writing skills to quickly get up to speed with industry jargon and produce quality copy.

How did I become a writer?

Barry Hunt, Wordsmart Communications Ltd

My writing career began when I was at school in Southend. I didn’t want a regular job, so I pursued a career in journalism.

Following my A-levels, I gained a place on a course run by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) at Harlow College. At the time, it was the most prestigious journalism programme in the country having produced some of the UK’s leading journalists, as well as Piers Morgan and Jeremy Clarkson!

Having gained a distinction, I became a trainee reporter for the Wisbech Standard and Eastern Daily Press in Cambridgeshire.

My career soon moved from the front page to the back page as I became a sports writer and sports editor, writing about everything from racing pigeons to FA Cup football matches.

My next roles were in production, as a sub-editor and chief sub-editor, including spells at the News of the World and Autosport magazine.

At the tender age of 28 I was offered the chance to become editor of a local newspaper in Hertfordshire. This role quickly developed into becoming a group editor across Hertfordshire and Essex.

My final five years in the local press were spent as group commercial editor, a varied role involving marketing, events and B2B journalism.

“Barry is so knowledgeable and experienced. He made a difference to my business very quickly by giving me advice on my content and my website, but he also helped one of my clients to build his content from scratch adding to his confidence and mine. He impressed me with how many other things he can write for my business, including all the policies I need now and in future.
