The basics

I’m Paul F Cockburn, a freelance magazine journalist and web copywriter based in Edinburgh. I work with clients across Scotland and the rest of the UK.

Why me?

It’s my job to write what you need to publish. That’s true whether we’re talking newsstand magazines, websites or mobile apps – I have a clear understanding of how your audiences engage with different platforms. I can put that knowledge to work for your business.

My experience

I’ve been creating quality short and longform magazine features – often interview-based – for numerous B2C and B2B clients for more than 25 years.

Specialist areas of work include arts & culture, equality issues, and popular science – but don't let that stop you from getting in touch!

Some non-work details

My favourite things include: mongrel dogs, drinking green tea in coffee shops, and urbexing on a Sunday afternoon using out-of-date maps.

I believe that a beach—not some sun-bleached, white-sand dazzler, but one with water-worn stones, the detritus of sea shells and the mini-ecologies of rock pools—is much more fun to explore when you know the tide’s coming in.
