About us

Founded by Charlie Hobson in 2003, The Wordsmithy has a decade of writing experience across most genres and industries. Charlie’s corporate marketing background gives her a broad commercial perspective so that she can contribute ideas and recommend tactics, if appropriate, as well as producing excellent copy.

When more resources are needed, Charlie calls on her network of experienced associates who share this intelligent and capable approach.

Writing is our core business and of course we believe we do it exceptionally well. That’s why we have so many loyal and long-standing clients. But what else makes people choose to work with us?

A commercial approach

We’re focused on business results not artistic merit.

Long experience

We’ve worked in house and outside on copywriting, marketing and communications across all sorts of different sectors.


We work fast, turn around urgent jobs in short order and do what you need to get the job done on time.

Good to work with

We’re friendly, professional and bend over backwards to fit in with the way you like to work. On the phone, by email or face to face, we communicate clearly and effectively. We love our work and we want to do a great job for you.


We can work to your copy brief or help you put one together, advising on approaches and options if you’re not sure exactly what you want to say or how.


We’ll get to grips with your brief and background quickly because we like to understand and engage with what we’re writing about, whether it’s new to us or we’ve worked in the area before.

Great track record

We work with a wide range of clients providing copy for all types of media, and we can show you examples and testimonials.

Charlie, thank you SO much. Working with you has been so easy and relaxed, I’m really enjoying it and the book is so much stronger and more streamlined for your help.”

Kitty French, author, Knight series (Amazon number 1 bestseller)

I was delighted with Charlie’s work, both the process and the outputs. She was able to genuinely understand our unique differentiators and put them into crisp and professional words. She was able to capture the tone of our business and the aspirations that we had for ourselves and our customers. Her copy was always engaging and spot-on. I’d recommend Charlie for any challenging assignments that need a true professional.”
