Ever since I remember myself, I devoured one book of literature after another and I kept a diary. I still do, although I don’t have enough time to read as many books as I’d like anymore and the blog has replaced my handwritten diary. Reading and writing have always been my life’s great passions, even before travelling came along to claim its place in my heart. My studies in English & Greek Language & Literature reflect these passions.

As a freelance travel writer, I help travel brands stand out by understanding the message they want to convey and delivering it in the form of well-written, SEO-optimised and unique content. In other words, I transform clients’ ideas into captivating storytelling, informative copy and effective narrative.

It was a great pleasure to work with Maria & Katerina on content creation. They made the process seamless, understood exactly the project, the requirements, the “feeling” of our property that we wanted to communicate to the world and worked diligently and efficiently to deliver the best result. I am really looking forward to working with them in the future!

It’s been such a pleasure working with Maria. She did the copywriting for our website as well as blog posts and newsletter articles. Her professionalism and inspiration combined make for such a delightful collaboration. Her work is always delivered on time and well researched. Our focus is Greece and her first-hand experience throughout the country really reflects in her writing. With little guidance she receives, she’s able to transform a simple idea into a fun and relatable article that flows well and is easy to read.
