About Louise

Louise Etheridge is an award-winning British copywriter, lyricist and poet. She performs stand-up comic poetry and her poetry has been commissioned by groovy people like Sandi Toksvig, the less groovy D*aily T*legraph and performed at the Royal Festival Hall by actor Hugh Grant. Yes, THE Royal Festival Hall.

Louise also writes for branding agencies, graphic designers and anyone else who pay her to write things.

Louise’s career has been varied and unsettling; freelance writing for the Guardian and the Times; VAT consultancy at Deloittes; higher education management at University College London and project management for a DCMS agency. She has lots of letters after her name, i.e. MA (Hons) and MCIPD, which means she can do other things besides write stuff, like translate Latin and teach Appreciative Inquiry.

Louise’s comic poetry and short stories are available from Amazon and Waterstones and have five star reviews. She’s appeared in the same shows as poets John Hegley and Henry Normal.
