Sophie Cross is the editor and publisher of Freelancer Magazine, a quarterly 100-page glossy print business magazine for copywriters, creative and B2B freelancers.
She is not-so-secretly very pleased to be known as “The OG of Freelancing” and has been providing marketing strategy and copywriting services as a solo act since 2013.
When her client work went a little quiet due to the pandemic, and already with half an eye on creating her own things, Sophie launched Freelancer Magazine via a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign which hit 150% of its goal and sold 1000 copies of the magazine before the magazine even existed.
It now has a rapidly growing community of B2B and creative freelancers and readers in over 20 countries. Sophie is a big believer in community, always trying to connect people to one another within the freelance industry, as well as inspiring freelancers to make their own things and scale their businesses. Sophie runs events, workshops and creates online marketing and mindset courses for ambitious freelancers and creatives which have rave reviews.
