Do you need an affordable writer for your business?

As a freelance copywriter, I’m lucky to work with amazing clients all over Australia. I help small businesses and big businesses establish a strong brand, build trust and win new customers by writing quality content with a fun, creative edge.

Boring copy doesn’t sell. Even the most professional, corporate business can benefit from warm, friendly, easy-to-read content that draws customers in. I’ve told thousands of stories and the best ones always have a human element. If you want to ban boring - I’m the copywriter for you.

I’ll help you find what’s unique about your business and write the absolute heck out of it.

You’ll be happy you called

  • I’ve got lots of experience and I love what I do.

  • You’ll enjoy working with me, because I’m a friendly human

  • I’ll save you time - no more brainstrain about what to write. Hurrah!

  • My rates are competitive and affordable. It’s a great investment.

my love of writing started early …

 

When I was young, my most prized possession was a little typewriter in an orange case. I must have written a thousand short stories on it over many years, while I’m sure my mum wondered what possessed her to buy me such a noisy birthday present. 

These days the technology is a little more advanced, but my love of writing hasn’t changed a bit. Now I enjoy using my skills to help others. Whether you are a business owner who needs help communicating with customers, or a job seeker who needs an effective resume with professional polish, I take great pride in getting it right.

I have a degree in Communication Studies (Journalism) and a Diploma of Marketing. After uni, I worked as a newspaper journalist for 12 years, before launching my own marketing and copywriting business, Wordsmith Communications. 

After taking some time off to be a full-time mum, in 2019 I dusted off my laptop and got back into business, rebranding under my own name and focusing more on my love of writing.

I always strive to be authentic and professional, and help my clients find their point of difference to stand out from the crowd. I genuinely care about doing a great job and providing exceptional service. My reputation depends on the quality of my work, and I’m proud that my clients come back time and again, and happily recommend me to others.

If you think I can help you with some great words, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

3 things you don’t know about me

I’m named after a horse

Not any old horse, but the Bart Cummings-trained racehorse Dayana.

She was the 1972/73 Australian Racehorse of the Year. Dayana won four Australian derby’s and ran 12th in the 1973 Melbourne Cup.

My dad named me Dayarne. It’s pronounced phonetically, DAY-ARN. My family and friends call me Day.

 

I’m a heart kid

I had open heart surgery when I was three years old to repair a hole in my heart and a deformed artery. My surgeon did a fabulous job, and my heart health is now perfect!

I have a neat little 30cm scar down my chest, but it’s been a part of me for so long I hardly ever notice it.

 

I’ve always been a writer

My first short story was published when I was six. It was about a baby that got lost in the woods – but don’t worry, it had a happy ending! I was in Year 1 when I told my teacher I wanted to be a journalist. True to my word, I studied Journalism at university. I worked as a newspaper journalist for 12 years before becoming a copywriter.

CONTENT HELPS CREATIVE BUSINESS SHINE

Couldn't be happier with Dayarne! She is one talented lady.

She is able to put a professional spin on the copy, whilst still keeping my essential personality and brand vibe. She is a fast worker, who keeps you up-to-date with her progress and promptly provides content as promised.

Her copy comes well organised, and easily used for its intended purpose, with clear headings and descriptions for use. If you need a copywriter how can easily manage to capture your words and make them shine, Dayarne is your lady.
