ABOUT ME

My Bio

Are you looking to take your content to the next level? Look no further.


Hi, I'm Sophia Murphy, a freelance writer for hire. Welcome to my site.
I am fully engaged and invested in every project I work on and am excited to lend my expertise to make a project the best it can be.

I have over 15 years of writing, editing, and project management experience as a corporate professional. I parlayed these skills and my love for the written word into a freelancing business, so I can help people like you, save time and money, get noticed, and reach your goals.  I am familiar with editing and writing corporate and business materials, blog articles, professional bios, resumes, and website content.

I deliver content that is:

  • well researched 

  • easy to read

  • SEO-friendly

  • informative

  • interesting and engaging

  • adheres to timelines

I specialize in the following content writing areas:

  • Lifestyle 

  • Travel 

  • Beauty

  • Business products and services

  • Website copy

You'll find I'm easy to work with and eager to get the job done.
My ultimate goal is to ensure I've delivered on what I promised and you are happy with the final product.

Fun facts about me:

1. During University, I worked at a record store. Remember those?

2. I love bacon in the morning but hate it at any other time of the day. Weird!

3. My current favourite shows: This Is Us, Good Girls, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Queen of the South. 

I'm also married and have two very active boys. When I'm not writing, you can find me ferrying my kids from one birthday party to the next. ​

TESTIMONIALS

 

As a startup, our needs change rapidly. Sophia has kept up with the demands of our company's content and social calendar seamlessly. She has written a variety of pieces for our company's blog and website and each time, the tone is spot on. From more technical articles that deal with explaining our products and services to more personal thought pieces, Sophia has shown a unique ability to pivot her writing style based on the exact needs at hand. She's been able to not only translate the general content and SEO needs that we have, but done so in a way that is still engaging and interesting for our readers. The timely completion of all deliverables combined with her knack for connecting with our audience has made her one of our favorite writers to partner with. Thanks, Sophia, for your consistent commitment to excelling for the team!
