Just Words – Alexis Harvey

I’m Alexis Harvey, an experienced writer, copywriter, editor and researcher.

I was previously Head of Development at the Guardian & Observer newspapers, managing a large team to produce in-paper and standalone editorial and advertising supplements and marketing promotions and copy.

I have worked for a huge variety of clients on an equally huge range of projects. I am particularly proud of the work I have done for Bates Wells, the leading charity law firm in the UK, and for Mary O'Hara on her book, Austerity Bites.

I am currently working with Mary again on Project Twist-It – a project to challenge negative poverty stigma through sharing the stories of those with lived experience. I am managing the social media accounts, website copywriting and report writing for the project.

Specialist areas

  • Business consultancy and planning, providing competitor analysis and business plans to start up and expanding businesses;
  • Editorial consultancy for magazines and journals, drawing on my huge experience of print production, from commissioning and writing articles, flatplanning and design management through to production of print-ready pages and artwork;
  • Journalism, editorial and advertising copywriting;
  • Legal copywriting. I now have a roster of legal clients, who draw on my experience in turning the language and style of lawyers into something that a non-specialist reader can understand;
  • Non-profit and charity copywriting, editing and research; and
  • Postgraduate copy-editing, proofreading and fact-checking for dissertations and theses.

My work

I have a reputation for quality copy, delivered on time and at a realistic price. I work quickly and effectively, drawing on my huge range of experience to deliver copy your target market will want to read.

I am also a fast and accurate copy-editor, proofreading books, complex documents and postgraduate theses. I regularly copy-edit and proofread newsletters and reports for a wide range of organisations, including schools, law firms, non-profits and commercial companies.

Please contact me for more information about what I can do for you.

Thank you!
