The writing coach

I’m Kate Hulme. I’ve over 20 years’ experience writing for brands and arts & cultural organisations. I’ve set up bespoke training courses for large museums undergoing huge change and small organisations who want to boost skills and morale. I’ve created Style Guides, edited vast amounts of other people’s text and written engaging copy for brands.

Recently I designed and ran a series of writing workshops for the National Army Museum in Chelsea, rolling it out across the organisation and writing a detailed Style Guide for them that was bespoke to their needs. I’ve just finished a course of tailored training courses for The Box in Plymouth, mentoring their staff through writing a huge amount of text to a new tone of voice that I helped them develop. I’ve delivered training for universities and developed tone of voice strategy and writing guides for brands.

I’m a writing nerd. A beautiful phrase fills me with joy, but so does a perfectly placed semi-colon; I almost resisted the urge to illustrate the second point within this sentence.

Coaching gives me the chance to make people feel better about their writing and the opportunity to find pleasure in the occasional utterly brilliant thing they write that I could never have written in a million years.
