About me


Hi there!

 

I’m Christin. I’m an East Asia copywriter, editor, occasional translator, and project manager. 

I live and breathe anything East Asia (ask me about my favorite J-pop band, the best historical figure from East Asia that you have never heard about, my go-to Chinese noodle type, or my secret hideaway in Taiwan) and it shows in my work. My texts on East Asia go beyond tired stereotypes and “I’ve-read-that-a-thousand-times-cliches” to grab your readers’ attention and call your audience to action.

Whether you’re looking for a think piece on current Chinese education policy, a travel post on hiking in the Japanese Alps, a deep dive into Taiwanese mountain spas, or a blog post about popular Kimono patterns, I’m the right fit for you. I will use my expertise to connect with your clients and draft the perfect copy for you.

After living in Toronto, Berlin, and Tokyo, I am currently based in Nanjing, China. If I’m not writing, you can usually find me on the hunt for good Dumplings.

Why work with me?

  • I have a background in research (and a PhD from the University of Toronto). All my pieces are rigorously researched and fact-checked. Before I write for you, I will research your audience and make sure that we speak to your ideal clients.
  • I have worked as an educator for more than a decade. I know how to break down complex information and how to keep my audience engaged.
  • As a former grant writer, I have made my clients millions with my writing. I know the power words can have and I know how to use it.
  • I am an expert in SEO. All my writing is search engine optimized so that your target audience finds you and your amazing product.
If you work with me, you get a researcher, East Asia copywriter, salesperson, educator, and SEO wizard all in one

FAQs

To put it simply: good copywriting will make you money.

Good copywriting induces people to act, buy a product, sign up for an email list, apply to a university, or engage with a service. Copywriting is different from content writing in that it does not only provide information but has a clear call to action.

You might have the best product or service in the world. If people don’t know you or believe in you, the quality of your work will not make a difference. That’s where good copy comes in.

A good copywriter will know who your audience is, what they want and need (or think they want), and how to engage them. Copywriting is more than words on a page, it’s research, storytelling, and sales in one.

If you work with me, you will profit from my decade-long experience. I have been an educator, working with university and high school students for years. I know how to break down complex information and how to engage people (even if they think they don’t care).

If you hire me as a East Asia copywriter, you will get someone who knows the region intimately. I have written a PhD on German-Japanese relations (nothing to do on a cold winter night? check it out: https://hdl.handle.net/1807/80744), I am conversational in Japanese and working on my Mandarin. I am also currently based in China so you can depend on my connections and up-to-date information. I might even share my favourite secret Ramen place in Tokyo with you.

Lastly, I have been writing and engaging with texts all my life. I have an MA in European Literatures and my very first job after graduating was as a copywriter. As a grant writer, I have fundraised millions. I know how to use the power of language effectively.

No serious copywriter will promise you a specific amount or that their SEO will bring you to the top page of Google.

However, if you hire me, you can be sure that I do two things: I research your SEO needs thoroughly and I will not spam my text with useless key words. Instead, I will use well-researched, relevant keywords that drive your ranking up.

In my years as grant writer, I have fundraised millions for my clients. I know the power of words and how to use them. A former colleague of mine once said I can “talk the hind leg off a donkey” and while I certainly know how to make a sale, I will ensure that my copy helps you grow your business organically and ethically. 

We will usually have a free discovery call where I find out more about you and your needs so that I can devise a strategy for you. After that I will send you a proposal of my services which we can discuss and adapt. We will sign a contract that stipulates deadlines and payment, so we are always on the same side.

It depends on the project, but it typically takes me a week to send you a first draft. My offer includes two rounds of edits. Full payment is due when I deliver the first draft.
