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.
Today, our content creation agency has grown to a staff of over 90 talented writers, creators, editors, and designers. We’ve completed more than 30,000 content projects for clients worldwide.
We believe in greatness, and succeeding by setting the standard.
We believe in creating great content, without compromise. We’re a team of content creators that care. We serve clients that have high-volume, high-quality content needs, and are ready to go!

Client & Social Media Specialist
I’m a writer and editor from Pasadena, CA, with a wealth of SEO/SEM experience, having worked in content marketing for tech companies, content providers, and law firms. I love the written word, whether in the form of a suspenseful novel, an insightful blog post, or even a clever description on a can of beans! My quest for well-crafted prose has led to a passion for editing. I delight in making an author’s work shine. I’m also a science fiction writer and a musician, with a couple of novels, several short stories, and much music (from film scores to pop songs) to my credit.
I am a content creator and member of the International Association of Professional Writers and Editors. I write on healthy living, marketing, education, travel, grants, and self-development. I also enjoy researching new topics and summarizing complex text into creative content for our clients. I am multi-cultural, enjoy creating art, love to travel, and continuously seek a sustainably fun life balancing physical and mental health.
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 Course, Expert 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.
