Amy Bell is a freelance copywriter, journalist and founder of WritePunch Inc. Armed with more than 15 years of professional writing and marketing experience, Amy has a knack for crafting compelling copy that captivates readers and drives audiences into action. She tackles copywriting projects for an array of ad agencies and companies across the country, working hand-in-hand with clients to cook up innovative campaigns and deliver attention-grabbing copy.
Amy also contributes insightful articles to a variety of publications and websites. With tons of research, writing and interview experience and a genuine passion for the written word, she can produce riveting content about practically any topic.
Amy’s insatiable zeal for the written word is part of her DNA. Her late grandfather was a journalist and Editor-in-Chief for The Thomaston Times, a small-town Georgia newspaper, and her mother is a retired English teacher and published fiction author. For much of her childhood, Amy’s nose was wedged firmly in a book. When she wasn’t reading, she was writing—filling up countless notebooks with poems, short stories, song lyrics and "investigative articles" about her big sister’s boyfriends.
In 1999, Amy graduated from the University of Georgia with a BA in Journalism and a minor in English. She launched her professional writing career at an Atlanta-based magazine, where she sharpened her reporting and editing chops. She later transitioned into the world of TV entertainment marketing. During an exciting five-year career at Cartoon Network, she gained priceless marketing and advertising experience and learned the fine art of copywriting.
In 2004, Amy moved to Tampa, Florida, where she worked as a journalist and copywriter for a publishing company. A year later, she decided to strike out on her own as a freelance writer. In 2005, WritePunch Inc. was born.
Today, Amy lives in beautiful Bradenton, Florida with her husband, daughter and their two boisterous Labradors. A self-professed word nerd, Amy relishes every day as a freelance writer, and she tackles each and every writing project with enthusiasm.
