Welcome to Copy by Catherine.


I am a freelance writer with a background in film and television journalism. I have appeared on national television and radio, and my work has been featured in The Times, Digital Spy and Everyman Cinemas, to name only a few. I have also employed my writing skills in a variety of industries, from the fast-moving tech world, to corporate client work and the charitable sector.


I have a First Class Honours degree in Film & Literature from the University of Warwick. It was at university that I started out as a writer, contributing to the student newspaper and writing reviews for websites that spotlighted small independent films.

In my day-to-day role as a writer, copyeditor and proofreader for clients, I am Catherine Drake.


When you see my work as a freelance film and television journalist, I am Catherine Pearson. It was my maiden name and I still use it for my media bylines. Consider it my film-watching alter-ego!
