Compass Copywriting is a copywriting company based in Hampshire and is managed by me, Anna Twitchin.
I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in 2007, with a BA (Hons) degree in English Literature and Journalism. After graduating from university, I went on to work for Southampton based cruise company Carnival UK. Having spent two years working in the company’s head office, I embarked on a three year adventure working in sales and marketing onboard P&O’s cruise ships. As well as selling shore excursions to passengers, I was actively involved in the marketing of shore excursions onboard. This is where my love of copywriting started.
I then went on to work for Hampshire County Council’s Economic Development department. I spent several years working in marketing for the brands Visit Hampshire, Film Hampshire and Hampshire Conference Bureau. My time at Hampshire County Council allowed me to work with a vast number of Hampshire based businesses, including hotels and tourist attractions. I also wrote contributory pieces for English Tourist Board Visit England and various tourism trade publications.
In 2015 I completed my Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Certificate in Professional Marketing qualification, obtained at Southampton Solent University.
I have written for a wide range of audiences, including B2B and B2C markets. I have spent time managing and writing content for websites and have formulated my own content marketing plans. My experience includes managing social media feeds for key brands, as well as writing trade e-newsletters. I have also spent time creating brochure content, writing articles for trade publications and blogging.
Further to my love of writing, I have a passion for editing and proofreading. As well as working on printed literature, I have spent time proofreading and editing online content for different brands.
In my spare time, I like to work on my cruise blog thecruiseblogger.com which charts my recent travels abroad.
