I'm Lucy Handley, a writer, journalist and consultant. I tell stories and help others tell theirs.

Here you can find more about me, examples of my work and read my FAQ.


Contact me to discuss your project.


I've been a writer for more than a decade, working for several business and lifestyle outlets as a journalist and editor before going freelance. I also write and present videos, take part in podcasts, host webinars and have ghostwritten an award-winning memoir.

I've covered everything from how the pandemic changed China's health system to the strange experience of holidaying in Las Vegas alone, and the ways that brands can make the most of TikTok. I also have a personal newsletter, The Honesty Box.

You can find my writing in national and international media including Time magazine,, The Guardian and The Telegraph, and I’m editor-at-large of Catalyst, the member magazine for the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

I can also craft blogs, LinkedIn posts and corporate video scripts. I'm a copywriter and ghostwriter for executives, and help entrepreneurs tell their stories. I love working with founder-led businesses on their own narratives to help them grow.

You can see some of my work here and read my FAQ here.

To commission me, have me consult for you or help you write your book, please contact me.



"It's one thing to have a good story to tell, and another to tell a good story. We spent over 100 hours working on my book manuscript to make my story come to life. Thank you Lucy, I am very proud of the outcome of this project and that is to a large extent because of you."

Sophie Trelles-Tvede, founder, Invisibobble

"Lucy's knowledge of the marketing and business landscape and impressive network make her a fantastic journalist who can adapt her skills to suit a great number of briefs. Over and above her abilities, she has always been a professional and personable colleague who I have enjoyed working with."

Ally Lee-Boone, Chartered Institute of Marketing

"Lucy is a great journalist and colleague and I can highly recommend her. She is extremely well-organised and creative, able to come up with fantastic ideas, source freelances and write great pieces."

Jane Dudman, The Guardian
