CIVIL content is a copywriting and content support service by Edinburgh-based freelancer Josef Church-Woods; a creative producer with a background in communications, marketing, content development, and SEO.

Together with partner Barry Church-Woods, Josef runs live arts production company Civil Disobedience, combining project work with his role as marketing manager. He offers flexible, affordable writing and content support with a fast turnaround to artists and other clients as part of the company’s marketing service.

“We’ve engaged Joe on a few copywriting projects now and he always delivers for our clients. He’s organised, flexible and pleasant to work with, crafting great content to the agreed deadlines and adapting seamlessly to a brand’s preferred tone of voice. He understands the importance of good content architecture and keyword optimisation, and he’s comfortable working independently, liaising directly with the client when needed.”

Gordon McLachlan, Managing Director, Primate

“Joe was a pleasure to work with on our website copy. He took a lot of complex background information on board quickly, producing accurate and lively copy in line with our messaging and tone of voice. He worked quickly and thoroughly and was really good at keeping us up to date on progress and listening to our specific requirements. Thanks Joe!”

Helen Dunk, Communications Manager, ECCI
