Gemma Wilcock

Freelance Writer

Gemma Wilcock is a freelance writer and copywriter. She grew up in the North-East of England but has lived in and around London for almost 20 years now. At Mumsnet, she creates content providing useful parenting advice, information and top products to make life easier – as a mother of two children herself, Gemma knows how important it is to get the right advice.

After attending university in Sunderland to study journalism, Gemma moved to London and spent a year doing internships on women’s monthly magazines before securing her first job on Bella magazine, in 2005. She then moved on to work at Woman’s Own, commissioning, writing and interviewing people for the magazine’s real-life content, as well as compiling news-led features.

When she fell pregnant with her first child in 2014, Gemma turned to freelance writing to fit around family life, and since then has compiled content for a range of online and print publications, charities and small businesses. She loves writing about subjects that will be helpful to the reader – and herself! - from recommending top products that help parents in their day-to-day life to financial advice and activities that the whole family will enjoy.

When Gemma’s not writing or spending time with her two children, she can be found in the gym, where she also works as a personal trainer. She loves that she can help people through her writing and also inspire them on their fitness journey - even better if she can combine the two!
