Angie Harms - Copywriter

Copy that puts a human touch on every business message

Good communication is one of the cornerstones of any successful business, and my goal is to lighten your load on that front. I’ll take the time you don’t have to make sure your words are just right. 


When you work with me, you get more than a freelancer or a consultant. You get a collaborative partner who cares as much about your success as you do. I mean that: I won’t work with you if I don’t think our values are a good match. 

What ARE my values? Honesty, integrity, kindness, genuine human connection, and doing great work my clients are happy with. I’m here to make the world a better place, just like you are, and I purposefully keep my workload small so that I can give every project the time and attention it deserves.

The Backstory

I was born in a small town in Iowa, but I've never let that stop me. I first left home at the age of 16 to be an exchange student in the Canary Islands, Spain. I've taught English in Japan and led adventure tours in Central America. Whether learning languages or teaching them, travelling the world or curled up in my favourite chair with my nose stuck in a book, underlying everything has been an obsession with the power of words. I've edited several novels, proofread many PhDs, and curated the fiction floor of the largest bookshop in Scotland. In short, I’ve been wordsmithing my way around the world for more years than I care to admit. 


I found my way to my first official copywriting gig in the middle of pandemic lockdown, thanks to a mouse who chewed a hole in a water pipe above my neighbour’s kitchen ceiling – but that’s a story I reserve for our first creative review. (Curious? Let’s get the ball rolling!)

My copywriting skills are complemented by additional professional experience in:

Bookselling and publishing


Spanish to English translation 


Language learning and education

Fun Facts

  • ‘A is for Angie’ has been my internet handle since 2004 when I was teaching English (starting with the alphabet) to schoolkids in Japan.

  • I have a preposterously handsome cat named Goose. He's called Goose because my husband is an ornithologist 🪺. You can follow him (the cat, not my husband) on instagram at (you guessed it)

  • I also keep a (sporadic) instagram book blog; if you’re a fellow booklover and curious about what I’ve been reading, you can find it at @bisforbooknerd.
