New Vellum is a copywriting agency, founded by Sophy Roberts in 2001. Our team consists of a Managing Editor, three full-time writers, a part-time proof editor, and a video editor.  In addition we work closely with Rashna Mody Clark Design. We also work with a network of photographers, videographers and other specialists. 

Our expertise is a direct reflection of Sophy's journalism specialties prior to focusing on remote travel. We cover clients in the real estate, luxury hospitality, food and fashion sectors, creating brand magazines, books, brochures, digital newsletters, adverts and videos. We offer cost-effective retainers to manage all copy requirements, and lead writing courses for companies seeking to improve their brand voice or social media presence.
