About Us

We’re a content writing agency committed to excellence.

I’m Julia McCoy, founder of Express Writers. Back in 2011, we started with nothing but $75, a hope, and a dream.

I dropped out of college (and a nursing degree) at 19 to follow my passion for writing, and discovered the wonderful world of SEO, content, and marketing.

These were a perfect fit for my unique skills. I loved making money using the internet. Tastefully chosen words delighted my heart. (I’d been writing stories, plots, characters, and entire books since the age of 12.)

Within three months of teaching myself how to write for the web, I had enough clients to start a business. I started Express Writers with my last $75 in the bank (talk about broke college student). I coded the first version of our website myself, with a developer’s help. My goal back then was to assemble the best content writers on the web.

Like Marvel’s Avengers, but content creators – not superheroes. That single core value remains our driving purpose and core mission today.

My vision slowly came true, to my surprise. The setbacks and failures we experienced along the way turned out to be necessary steps in the path to our success.

Since I began Express Writers, I’ve stayed consistent with producing comprehensive, long-form blogs for our own content marketing, which is responsible for our growth.

My team and I have written over 1,200 SEO blogs for our own Write Blog, strategically created around the right keywords. Today, our website attracts over 100,000 visitors per month and remains our primary means of marketing.

We are the proof of our own pudding – and we are what we sell.

Julia McCoy

CEO

I’m a serial entrepreneur, content marketing strategist, and a passionate advocate of using content to build a business. I find it rewarding to do what I love everyday. Two of my most rewarding tasks are mentoring and training talented content creators, and personally overseeing a massive success through content. I hate clickbait and icky content. I’m a 4x bestselling author (So You Think You Can Write?, Practical Content Strategy & Marketing, Woman Rising, and Skip the Degree). Today, I lead operations at my agency Express Writers (I never stop hiring writers!), and mentor and educate marketers at The Content Hacker™.

My background is in project development, Internet Marketing, and SEO. I met & married Julia (the CEO of Express Writers) in 2012 after hiring her to write my content.

Korilynn V.

Content Manager

I have been writing professionally for over 12 years now, but my passion for the written (should I say typed?) word started back in my elementary school days. I have always advertised myself as an advocate of words with my slogan, “putting words to good use 365 days a year,” working as a driving force in my career. Currently, I reside in Utah with my three munchkins and husband. I am obsessed with adult coloring books and possess a palate that only recognizes coffee flavors. In my behind-the-scenes management role here at Express Writers, I look forward to matching up our clients with the perfect writers, overseeing our support team and deadlines, and celebrating as our clients enjoy the victory of brand recognition through great content.

Client Specialist & QA

Since I was probably 13, all I’ve wanted to do was write. My illustrious career began with a composition notebook novel about time travel. The dream never died, and I finished my Bachelor’s in Creative Writing in 2016 and, in May of 2020, completed my MFA in Poetry. In grad school, I worked in marketing for a book festival and as an editor for a literary journal. I am eager to expand these skills with Express Writers. When I’m not editing or talking to clients, I teach in an after school program, read voraciously, hike with my corgi, and love antiquing.

Emily Q.

QA/Editor

For as long as I knew how to spell, I wanted to write. My mom takes credit for that; she read to me every night before I went to sleep, even and especially when she didn’t want to. I spent most of my working life in restaurant kitchens, but deep down I knew I was letting a cherished talent go to waste. My career just didn’t lie in the culinary arts. Now, pursuing my bachelor’s in Communication Studies, I’m finally doing what I should’ve been all along. You can find me at home in Philadelphia, hunched over my laptop—and somehow still finding enough time to cook.

Expert Writer

My passion for writing started at a young age, writing short stories titled ‘Three Hairy Cupcakes’ and ‘Where Did My Blanket Go?” for her family to enjoy. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Anthropology, while writing and managing my college’s newspaper. After graduation, I pursued a successful career in marketing for international manufacturers, with the goal to grow brands worldwide and drive business goals. By consistently writing high-quality blog articles, press releases, white papers and more for our clients at Express Writers, I’ve been able to continue following my passion for creativity and writing. When I’m not writing, you can usually find me enjoying a glass of red wine and hanging out with my dog, Monty.

I’m a tech copywriter, Content Strategist, and sometimes web developer, with over five years of experience in different areas including SEO and online marketing.

Kira G.

Kira G.

Content Strategist

My love of the written word started when I was young, and I knew that I had to learn to do this myself someday. Thanks to my high school and college years, this dream became a reality. I’m now doing what I love as a career, having written for various websites about many different topics. I’ve found a home with Express Writers and I’m enjoying every moment of my journey in my expanding role here. I match our clients up to great content, and work on strategy tasks as one of Julia’s trained Content Strategist. When I’m not writing or content sleuthing, I love to express my creativity with various fiber arts, like knitting and embroidery. I’m also an avid gamer, which I’ve written about as well.
Esther O.

Esther O.

QA/Editor

I have had a fondness for books for as long as I can remember. I was the kid usually missing from playtime and discovered curled up around a book in a comfortable hidden nook. My fascination for words did not diminish as I grew older and it’s inspired me to take on several content-related tasks, including my current editing role at Express Writers. My first degree is in Special Education and I have a master’s degree in Social Work. I happily volunteer my time reading to children and helping them discover the amazing world of books. When I’m not busy editing, writing, or immersed in a book, you’ll find me being goofy and annoying my four adorably mischievous cats.
Dara D.

Dara D.

Senior QA

I am a grammarian (more of a hybrid fella – 65% prescriptive, 35% descriptive grammar), a content strategist, and a copy editor. I have an advanced degree in biochemistry and received my editing certificate from UCSD. I started out as an in-house editor at a print newspaper outfit, then resigned from the position not long after to work from home and become a freelance book editor.


As a QA at Express Writers, I review our content to ensure accuracy and that the writer saw to all the client’s requests – voice, talking points, style, audience, etc. Besides this, I provide support to both prospective students and in-training content strategists/marketers/writers enrolled in our courses, including The Content Strategy & Marketing CourseExpert SEO Content Writer, and Unlearn Essay Writing course.

Work aside, I enjoy traveling, exotic cuisines, animals (my partner and I have four adorable cats), reading, and journaling.

Content Specialist

I discovered that I can write during my college years writing reaction papers. And from that day, I haven’t stopped writing to the point it became what I do for a living! Now in Express Writers, I’m more in charge of editing and making sure all the content we deliver meets clients’ requirements. When I’m not working, I travel to new places or simply go for long walks to get away from my laptop. I’m studying French, too, where I often try my best not to overdo my writing homework – but, I just can’t help it.

Kathlene V.

Expert Content Writer

I’m a writer on a simple mission —to make every day count. I have over three years of experience in technical, content, and copywriting. But, perhaps the most rewarding was to lead and mentor a team of writers. And, it all started in first grade. A teacher asked what I would be when I got older, and I said, “a flight attendant!” I wanted to travel the world, to explore and learn all that there is. Now I have a Bachelor’s degree in English, and I’m a freelance writer. You won’t believe the worlds I get to explore beyond ours.
Aaron M.

Aaron M.

QA/Editor

When I was young, I was the type of kid to get excited when the teacher would assign a research essay. In school or not, I spent many hours of my adolescence writing anything from short fiction, to long form research inquiries. After graduating high school, I began studying astrophysics, and looking for opportunities to exercise my writing ability in a professional setting. It wasn’t until Express Writers that I’d have the opportunity to fully and finally do so. Now pursuing a degree in metaphysics, I plan to eventually teach it, and continue to grow as a writer along the way.
