I’m Julia McCoy, founder of Express Writers. Just 6 years ago, we started with nothing but $75, a hope, and a dream.
Back in 2011, I quit a nursing degree to follow my passion for writing.
Self-taught, within three months I had enough clients to start a business. I started my content writing agency, Express Writers, out of nothing but $75, and spent 60-hour weeks to code and launch my first website.
My goal in the early stages of building a content creation team was to find and assemble the best content writers on the web. My vision slowly came true, and the setbacks and failures along the way turned out to be necessary steps in the path of our success.
Since I began my content creation agency, I’ve stayed consistent with producing comprehensive, long-form content pieces for our own content marketing, and today, our content has brought in 99% of our clientele. With no funding, no paid ads, in less than six years our content creation agency has grown to a staff of over 90 people, we’ve completed more than 20,000 content projects, and we’ve served over 5,000 clients worldwide.
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.
In short, we are the proof of our own pudding — and we are what we sell.
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! We’ll take your input forms, topics, and work magic to create amazing content for you in the top online content formats.
With more than 90 expert content writers, we cater to multiple formats and expert industries (our specialist expert writers can write long-form SEO blogs, web pages, emails, landing pages, social media posts, video scripts and more); and, we focus on and commit to producing quality in everything we write.
We are actively seeking new content engagements. We look forward to hearing about your projects, and how we can help you soar online with great content. You can browse our NEW Content Shop here, or go here to talk to us about your project.
Our ideal clients today are seasoned marketers and agencies.
If that’s you… I welcome you on a journey. We’d love to create rockstar content for you!

Jillian graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Anthropology, while writing and managing her college’s newspaper. After graduation, she perused a successful career in marketing for international manufacturers, with the goal to grow brands worldwide and drive business goals. By consistently writing blog articles, press releases, white papers and more, Jillian has been able to continue following her passion for creativity and writing. When she’s not writing and editing for our clients, you can usually find her enjoying a glass of red wine and hanging out with her dog, Monty.
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.
