Dawn McGuigan


Hey. I’m Dawn, a copywriter and communications specialist based in North East England.

I have almost two decades of experience delivering marketing, communications and content for organisations in the public and private sectors. You can see my full professional background on LinkedIn.

I now work with a whole host of clients – including Ithica Films, Crystallised and Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Trust – to deliver creative B-2-B and B-2-C copywriting and communications projects. I’m also an Associate Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Fashion Communications course at Northumbria University where I teach PR to first-year students.

My writing has been published in High Life North, Vibe magazine, Influence, Luxe magazine, The Journal and New Writing North, covering everything from books to returning to work after maternity leave, coastal walks and place branding features.

Keeping my skills and professional standards up to scratch is really important to me so I’m a Chartered Marketer and member of ProCopywriters. I’m a sucker for a CPD course so on top of my BA and MA in English from Northumbria University I’ve got a CIPR Professional Diploma, CIM Communications and Marketing Diploma, a Freelance and Feature Writing Diploma from the London School of Journalism and I’ve studied crisis communications with the Cabinet Office. Phew!
