About

Hey. I’m Derek Howie, a freelance copywriter, UX writer and content writer from Glasgow, Scotland.

Derek Howie - About

I've got a way with words

And whether you’re looking for marketing copy for your site, UX copy for your app or content for your blog, I’ll make sure you’re never lost for words again.

I’m a trained journalist, and over the years, I’ve written for some of the largest media organisations in Scotland, including The Scottish Sun, STV and tilllate magazine.

I then moved into the wonderful world of content and copywriting – and I’ve been here ever since.

You want to know more about me? OK, if you insist.

I’ve worked for some of the largest employers in the world, like AXA and the NHS. And I’ve worked alongside a range of B2B, B2C and third sector companies across Scotland, including businesses and charities in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

As a versatile writer, I can turn my hand to any subject or industry.

So whether you need marketing copy for your new site, UX copy for your mobile app or content for your blog, I’m here to help.

PS. I said earlier I’m from Glasgow, which is true. But I actually now live in Strathaven, a small town in South Lanarkshire.

You know what they say though. You can take the boy out of Glasgow, but you can’t take Glasgow out of the boy.
