Copywriter, word nerd, colour-lover
Oh hey you!
I’m Sarah Heard, the Chief Word Nerd here at Heard Write. I’m the solopreneur in charge of everything around here – from the first cup of coffee every Monday morning, to the last glass of wine on any given Friday night, and absolutely everything in between.
I was born and raised on Wirangu Country, in Ceduna, South Australia – a place where I learned the value of a full tank of fuel (800km drive to Adelaide anyone?) and where I still maintain you’ll find the most beautiful sunsets in the world. I now live on Kaurna Country, in Adelaide, but it wasn’t a direct route. I lived in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, regional Victoria, London, a tiny town in Devon in the UK, and a slightly bigger town on the island of Majorca, Spain, before I came to settle back here. I love immersive travel.
I also love cats, gnocchi, puns, wrangling words, and giving boundaries the odd nudge or two.
I make sure your message is heard
I’m all about writing copy that connects.
Copy that wholeheartedly embraces who you are and what you stand for.
Copy that has people shouting, “HECK YES!!” whenever they see you.
I’ll help you share your values with the world, using words that show how you live and breathe them in everything you do. Together, we’ll ditch the fear, unleash your personality, and share all (ok, maybe not allll) your quirks and idiosyncrasies. You know, the ones that take up just as much space in your world as your zone of genius does? (And rightly so, because they’re what make you YOU).
The result? Your ideal humans will fall even more wiggly-hipped and dreamy-eyed in love with you than ever before! Why? Because trust. Because connection. Because decisions are made with the story-loving heart, not the data-seeking mind (don’t argue with me, science has my back).
Fancy having a horde of humans who connect with you, support you, buy from you, gush about you, and stick with you like glitter to, well, everything?
What I Do
Here are just a few of the ways we can work together
- proofread or edit your existing copy so you can rest easy knowing it’s on point and looking good
- create brand new copy for you from scratch, for pretty much anything you need words for
- make your life easier by creating templates for your regular communication pieces
- work with you to absolutely nail your brand voice to make sure your brand always sounds like your brand
- create a writing style-guide to keep your brand’s communication consistent (did you know consistently presented brands record an average growth of 33%?).

I'm deeply grateful to live on Kaurna land and to divide my working life between the lands of the Kaurna, Peramangk, and Ngadjuri people. I acknowledge and respect the Traditional Owners and their connection to Country. Heal Country, heal our nation.
I work with people from all backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences. I believe everyone should have the freedom to be themselves and be valued for their differences. It’s what makes our beautiful world spin right 'round, baby.
