I’M JOHANNA LEGGATT, MELBOURNE
JOURNALIST AND COPYWRITER
And I get it. You want copy that tells a story. The right tone of voice for the business. Words that home* in on your organisation’s strengths, build authority and communicate that thing you with more energy and skill than anyone else in your field. As a former newspaper journalist and sub-editor, I now partner with financial services, property and health clients on copy and content that speaks to your target audience in a meaningful way
— minus the pushy sales talk and free set of steak knives.
*Definitely ‘homes’, not ‘hones’.
Craft a persuasive and SEO-friendly website, or refresh existing copy, with tag lines and CTAs that resonate.

Testimonials & Featured Clients
I have been privileged to work with Joh and her fabulous storytelling skills for several years now across a variety of industries. She has an incredible ability to humanise a brand through her words, she brings a wealth of knowledge, curiosity and passion to her copywriting, and her communication regarding deadlines is always fantastic.
Shae Iddles, Marketing Manager, MedAdvisor/TLCC
We hired Joh as a freelance copywriter to create some new and improved content for our website. Right off the bat, Joh was extremely professional and understanding of our requirements. She was intuitive and a great communicator, which allowed her to understand our brief quickly, provide some great suggestions and deliver on what we needed, on time. She also kept us up to date with her progress, which was very helpful to us given our short timeframes.
Rose Schiavello, CEO @ BuyMyPlace
I have used Joh to "ghost write" blogs for me and my team, and her excellent contributions have helped us independently rate as the top property website in the world. Her work needs minimal editing and she writes proficiently in the genres of property, business and the psychology of success. I've worked with many writers over the years and can honestly say Johanna has been one of the most professional I have worked with.
Michael Yardney, Founder, Metropole Property Strategists
When I was a commissioning editor, Joh was a dream to work with. Her story ideas are spot on and her copy is always cleanly written. Furthermore, her property and finance stories were often the most read stories on the entire news.com.au site.
