Emily Ash Powell is a writer who finds it much easier to write bios about herself in the third person. She spent her childhood in South Wales writing captions, notes and ‘how to’ guides with her Nannie and never went far without a notepad an a pen. She once had a poem published in the Donkey Sanctuary magazine, which she would say is her greatest achievement to date. She also once had a poem about the environment read out on Blue Peter, which earned her a badge that allowed her to go to Longleat Safari Park for free, much to the envy of her younger brother.

Not quite wanting to be more than 20 minutes away from the seaside, she headed a little way down the road to Swansea University, where she studied English Literature & Language before setting off to London into the world of words for brands and advertising, discovering that a job called ‘a copywriter’ existed that could enable her to combine the two things she really loved; understanding people and writing.

As a copywriter, Emily’s written words that engage customers for exciting brands including art galleries that change the way you buy art (Predella House), dog food companies that change the world of pet food (tails.com), fintech companies that change the world of finance (Circle), charities and more. She re-reads these words to herself in a range of accents (usually Scottish), to make sure her words make sense in a voice that’s not her own.

She also writes articles and features on this blog and in a few other places too. If you’d like to commission her to write one for your publication, you’ll see how to get in touch below.

Emily firmly believes in the power of a good night’s (or day’s) sleep and says that getting a pedicure can make you feel like you’ve got your life together, even if you really don’t. She will not be your friend if you don’t love dogs.



If you’ve got some words you’d like written, you can email Emily at emilyashpowell@gmail.com.

If you want to chat in 280 characters or less, you can tweet Emily on Twitter, the place she lives without paying any rent.

And if you’re less words but more snaps, see what she’s up to on Instagram, where you’ll find many photos of dogs – some she knows, and others she doesn’t.
