"No man is an island,
entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continenteveryone needs a piece of content"
To misquote the poet John Donne, everyone needs a piece of content. Or as Bill Gates once predicted, "Content is King". It keeps websites fresh and informative, it improves online visibility, and it helps businesses connect with their audience.
Content can range from general web copy, seasonal blogs or recipes to newsletters and press releases - any written material that helps readers engage with a business or brand. But what's easy to read can be hard to write. And who has the time to run a business and write about it? Engaging, useful, accurate copy takes time and imagination. Which is where Isle of Write comes in.
So who is Isle of Write...?
Twelve years ago, Londoner Anna Pocock left the city she was born in, where she directed prime-time, lifestyle programmes for Channel 4 and BBC2, and moved to the beautiful Isle of Wight with her sailing-mad husband. Whilst pregnant with their first child, she began an Open University degree in Nutrition. After running out of biology modules that didn't involve dissecting rat livers, she changed tack mid-course to study her first love: English Language and Children's Literature - resulting in a fascinating if unique BA/BSc degree.
With a love of the written word and a mild social media addiction, Anna started blogging about life as a stay-at-home mum on the Isle of Wight, and soon after was asked to write for Sudocrem's website as their in-house 'Mummy Blogger'. This led to further corporate blogs and Facebook campaigns, followed by requests for web content, press releases, newsletters, and then articles for local and national publications. A decade on, she continues to deliver carefully crafted content to businesses far and wide (including companies in Denmark and Spain), consistently meeting agreed budgets and deadlines. She has contributed to COAST Magazine, Style of Wight, the Isle of Wight County Press, and Olive Magazine's website on articles spanning architecture, foraging, food and pottery. She has also written a guide book to the Isle of Wight for The Royal Hotel and, most recently, contributed to the cookbook Nammet.
