Based in beautiful bayside Melbourne, The Copy Shop copywriting service was founded by Dimity Barber, a journalist, and editor with more than 20 years of experience in the print and digital news and publishing industries. Dimity loves words. She has a Bachelor of Education in Literature and English (and Drama - don't judge!). She created her first newspaper when she was 10 years old, and while the circulation was admittedly quite small, her mum said it was the best newspaper she had ever read. She later worked in a bookshop to finance her fiction addiction but left to take up a marketing and publicity role at Oxford University Press. Why? Well, words! Dimity honed her writing chops as the real estate editor for Leader Community Newspapers, before moving to the news desk where she wrote award-winning hard news, lifestyle and travel pieces, the occasional restaurant review, and boundless human interest stories for newspapers across Melbourne. She went on to work as an editor, regional editor, and Head of Content, before taking the leap and branching out on her own to launch The Copy Shop. Her mission now is to provide clear and persuasive content to help your business grow.
