Amy Boulton

British Copywriter and Copy Editor based in Gothenburg


I specialise in writing and editing English language copy that explains and promotes ideas in a clear yet compelling way. While I mostly work with art and culture communications, I enjoy producing and editing texts for a wide range of sectors on a project basis. The type of content I’m most passionate about uses tech to help people explore places and build community - such as sharing economy apps, social activity networks and alternative city guides.

Still from Run-Around, award-winning film by artist Katxerê Medina



Copywriting: 

In 9 years of producing and editing texts for the arts, I’ve honed my skills in explaining complex ideas in simple terms. In artwork descriptions, research project outlines and exhibition introductions, I have a keen sense of what works and why. Equally I’ve seen the pitfalls (ever heard of ‘International Art English’?). Whether art related or not, I can transform your text into an engaging read that captures your reader’s imagination.

Copy editing & Proofreading:
