It’s been said that, “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life” – and that’s the goal of The Not So Starving Artist every single day – to love what we do.

Founded by copywriter, wordsmith and self-confessed Scrabble addict Sherinne Winderley, The Not So Starving Artist started as a one-(wo)man mission to occupy time while, literally, waiting for
paint to dry.

From humble beginnings – a trusty Macbook perched among canvases, easels and pots of bright pink paint – it has grown (one great sentence at a time) into a fully-fledged creative agency offering anything and everything to do with words and all the added extras to bring every word written to life.

From social media to press releases, from company profiles to websites, from fully-fleshed-out features to short-n-sweet campaign slogans, The Not So Starving Artist, and its team of talented, passionate and creative wordsmiths, tackles every project with one mantra in mind: “You are only as good as your most recent piece of work”.

Copywriting. Above the line, below the line and everything inbetween.
Editing & Proofreading. We’re allergic to typos and misplaced commas.
Social Media. We’re proud to admit that we think in status updates.
Blogging. Content is king when it comes to reeling ‘em in online.
Website Copy. Don’t know what SEO stands for? We’re happy to explain.
TV & Radio Scripts. Big screen, small screen, on-air and in-store.
Creative Conceptualisation. Nothing beats the buzz of a BIG idea.
