Looks like you’ve reached my website, so welcome.

My name’s Jack Oughton, I’m a freelance writer/copywriter and journalist in Croydon, South London. I also go by the name of Koukouvaya  (Greek: 'Owl').

This is (quite obviously) a website about what I do, which is writing. The purpose of this site  is to demonstrate said writing. And so, if in need of a writer, you can read my cuttings and decide if I’m the right man for you.

And if you are not in need of a writer you can read my cuttings for your own amusement, and if you want, find out a little more about what being a writer entails...

So, who's trusted me with their words then? Here's what I've done so far...

I have written/edited web/print content for publications that include: 

  • FHM
  • EMPIRE
  • Computeractive
  • The Independent
  • The Guardian
  • The Express
  • IGN
  • Q
  • Yahoo!/Yahoo! OMG/Yahoo! Movies/Yahoo! News/Yahoo! Lifestyle
  • AskMen
  • Skiddle
  • International Astronomical Union
  • Designmynight
  • Itchy City

I have written advertising copy for leading international brands, smaller niche websites and things inbetween. The list includes:

  • Smirnoff
  • Motorola
  • The UFC
  • Virgin Travel
  • Flybe
  • Unilever
And many others I'm under contract not to talk about icon smile About

In working with a variety of people I've built up quite a unique perspective, set of experiences and 'voice'.

So, why not say hello?
