Katie arthur

Nobody wants to talk to an organization. They want to talk to a person. That's why I write smart, concise, benefit-driven content that always feels like a conversation with a friend (while still packing a strategic punch).

As a senior copywriter with both a Master’s degree in English and a post-graduate certificate from Humber’s renowned copywriting program, my work is as intelligent as it is clever. Whether you need a hired hand for a single project or ongoing support for your team, I can help you break through the clutter and make a meaningful connection with your audience

Katie's Profile

Katie's best fit

My main area of expertise is education—helping private schools, colleges, and universities across Canada reach, recruit, and retain students. But I also really enjoy writing for tech start-ups, non-profits of all kinds, and small to medium-sized businesses looking for intelligent content to help them grow.

In terms of project specifics, I’m a great fit for any organization who needs a full website content overhaul. Give me your raw material and I’ll work alongside a designer/developer to improve your UX from a content standpoint and whip your copy into shape.
