She’s only been with us a short time but BJL’s Emily Beech is already well-known for being a bit of a copywriting whizz.
And you don’t have to take our word for it…some of the best names in the business seem to think so too.
Emily was named as one of five entrants shortlisted for the prestigious Winston Fletcher Fiction award.
Open to anyone working in advertising or marketing, the annual contest asks entrants to supply a 4,000-word piece of original work.
Emily’s short story ‘Normal’ beat off stiff national competition to make the final five and was described by the judges as: “A good story with convincing characters, told with restraint.”
She travelled to IPA headquarters in London to mingle with her fellow writers and meet chief judge, Waterstones founder, Tim Waterstone, and IPA President, Tom Knox.
As Emily says: “It was a great challenge – writing in a completely different style – and one I really enjoyed. “I’m definitely going to carry on writing more fiction in my spare time.”
