We don’t settle. We believe in greatness and we deliver it every time. We provide creative, authoritative, influential content penned by gifted writers (98% of our applicants don’t make our cut).
Real content writing and creation experts, at your service.
Ever seen those “overnight agencies” that pop up, promising the world?
You know you have.
“We do it all. Years of proven experience. Experts here. Hire us for major results.”
Yet the collective “we” does not have a face, name, or real history.
That’s not us.
Here’s the story.
Back in 2011, our founder Julia McCoy had a dream to write for a living and build her own business.
She was a college dropout, with $75 cash in her pocket.
Three months after deciding to drop out of college to teach herself writing, Express Writers came to life. It was a business name she came up with in five minutes, when her personal writing client portfolio exploded and she couldn’t handle the growth by herself, three months after teaching herself freelance writing.
She committed to one goal: it just made sense.
She decided to grow her business through what she sold — existing as the proof of her own pudding.
And that’s why she built Express Writers’ presence completely based on organic content.
She wrote blogs…every week.
She sent emails…every week.
And she kept this up, for years.
Today, expresswriters.com has over 90,000 site visitors and ranks as the #24,700th most popular website in the world. Our site has over 19,000 keywords indexed in Google. We have over 1,200 blogs published in nine years.
And since 2011, we’ve served over 5,000 brands and completed over 19,500 projects.
Julia created an empire out of nothing with sheer hard work, persistence, and a serious passion for writing.
Today, our team of 90+ writers, Content Strategists, editors, and staff members is a family of elite, intuitive, and caring content pros.
And our founder continues to handpick, train, and mentor them… every day.
As a busy team, we handle big and small projects alike, from large and small brands. Our writers are experts in a variety of industries.
Primarily, we are creators.
We are bibliophiles.
Readers, lovers of great content, writers, forensic content makers looking for your next hottest topic.
Instead of hiring ourselves out on a marketing ploy, then scrambling around to look for our “expert hats…”
The collective “we” in Express Writers comes from an authentic, REAL, place of doing content for years.
Bringing our own blog up to 90k visitors/month solely through great content.
That’s why we have the confidence to serve you. Because we sell what we know and do ourselves, every day.
We believe in partnering with authentic experts… don’t you?
Content proof is in the pudding.

We’re a copywriting agency that succeeds by setting the standard.
Back in 2011, I began Express Writers on the principle of finding talented writers who were second to none and shared a heartfelt passion in great writing. Since then, we’ve grown to include 90+ content creators, and have written for brands of all sizes around the globe.
Fast forward to 2020. We’ve managed to build a team that cares — a team that you can personally trust your content creation to. I am proud to say that. Together, we believe it takes a real, innate love for writing, and a cultivated skillset to craft content that works. Our expert writers are in every niche, and we’re able to provide full-time jobs to experienced writers who love their trade. We go beyond content creation itself, with Content Strategists to research your best content opportunities, and top-tier industry copywriters our editing team continues to mentor.
More than one person, as a team of skilled content creators, we’re a powerful “get-it-done” partner for your content creation needs. I promise – you won’t be disappointed.
-Julia McCoy, Founder
