About Me

Hi! I’m Sophie Butcher, and I’m based in the North East of England. I’m a freelance writer, providing both commercial copywriting and digital marketing services to brands, as well as editorial work – which includes personal writing as well as film and TV criticism.

My writing can be found on publications including EMPIRE Online, Huff Post UK, Jumpcut Online, Flip Screen, Screen Queens, One Room With A View and The Film Magazine, and I am currently available for commissions, shift work and podcast appearances.

I am also currently part of EMPIRE magazine’s mentorship scheme, working with Online Staff Writer Ben Travis to continue developing my film writing skills.

I also have a weekly Substack newsletter, ‘Growing Pains’, in which I send out a personal essay each week. Read and subscribe to it here: https://growingpains.substack.com/

    Hi! I'm Sophie.

    Writer, thinker, introvert. I like to talk about film, feelings and feminism. Not necessarily in that order.
