Kate Hammeren - Freelance Copywriter and Editor

But I hear you ask… why do I need a freelance writer and editor?

Reasons you need a freelance writer

  • You’re successful, driven and what’s written about your business MATTERS. 
  • You need sparkling, engaging writing that will attract more buyers to your business, position you as an industry pro and help you pack the punches when it comes to getting your message across.
  • Well, you’ve come to the right place! I’m your ‘Miss Write’, an experienced freelance travel writer and I'm here to help you curate the copy and content that you want and need. 

Reasons you need a freelance editor or proofreader

  • You've got the words down, but your blog or web content needs perfecting. 
  • You want English that screams ‘Extra!’. Basically the writing needs a re-write or an editor's eye going over the spelling, punctuation and grammar.
  • I'm a true grammar guru and relish going through your words, fine-tuning their fiddles and perfecting the English – if you just need an expert freelance editor's eye cast over your content before publishing, I'm here for you.

Get to know me... here are some fun facts 

  • As a freelance travel writer, I’m a proud member of the International Food, Wine and Travel Writers Association, an organisation that, in my opinion, represents the best three things in the world.
  • I’m Cambridge University-certified (CELTA) to teach English as a second or foreign language and have a BA (Hons) degree in Business and Leisure Marketing.
  • I was ecstatic to land my dream job straight out of university as firstly Products Editor, then Assistant Editor, for the UK's No: 1 equestrian monthly glossy magazine, Horse&Rider UK.
  • I’ve written for the ranch vacations industry for 12 years, and have ‘cowgirled’ in Montana and Wyoming. Loved every second.
  • I interviewed and wrote about the late Pinoy Rock legend Pepe Smith for a Filipino newspaper, and UK Olympic Showjumper Michael Whitaker for a Dutch magazine.
  • In 2013, I set up my freelance writing and editing business, solo travelled around South East Asia, never looked back. Best decision ever! Now, I choose to live and work remotely, travel frequently and absolutely love being able to do the job I adore, anywhere in the world.
  • 'Vanlife' is also my passion and I own a Mercedes Sprinter campervan conversion named 'Sadie'. When I'm not travelling the world, I love to travel my home country, the UK in my rolling home.
  • My pet hates are alarm clocks, people texting and walking (at the same time) and van break-downs.
  • There’s a special place in my heart (ok, stomach) for baked camembert.
  • I try as much as possible to live ‘eco’/green/zero waste/plastic free – we don’t have a Planet B!

@what_katie.did – biography

Kate Hammaren is a freelance travel writer and editor from the UK, with a BA (Hons) degree in Business and Leisure Marketing, and 20 years' experience in the industry – 10 self-employed.

Before becoming a freelance writer, Kate was formerly Assistant Editor for leading equestrian magazine Horse&Rider UK, then worked in Marketing, but decided to launch her writing and editing business in 2012 so she could embrace her true passion: travel.

As an original Digital Nomad, Kate lived in and explored the Philippines for seven years, and has visited 34 countries, including Mexico, Sri Lanka, the Caribbean islands, the Maldives, The Gambia, Finland, France, Greece, Spain, Turkey, Malaysia, Borneo, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and the Cook Islands – to name but a few.

Kate was also blown away by her travels to the U.S. and Mexico, and has made a few trips to experience ranch life, spending time cowgirlin' in Montana, Wyoming and on a real Mexican rancho.

She has also visited the Californian wineries of Sonoma and the Napa Valley, and was invited to Kentucky to learn about the area, and the Kentucky equestrian and horse racing scene. 

Now living in the UK and taking her freelance travel writing and editing business to the road in her Mercedes Sprinter campervan 'Sadie', so far Kate has explored South Wales, the Midlands and most of the south coast of England – more to come!

When she’s not working on her freelance writing business, Kate loves to wind down by walking, exploring, swimming, snorkeling, reading, cycling, cooking, horse riding, learning to surf, practising yoga and scuba diving, and enjoying the sunset with a good Rioja.
