I’m Rebecca (L) Chamberlain, and I have been writing professionally since my first graduate job as a journalist in 2000 – and creating websites to showcase them on since 2017.
I’ve written for broadsheet and tabloid publications; managed internal communications, websites, intranets and corporate reporting; helped small businesses; written and refreshed dozens of CVs; and coached people from a whole range of backgrounds into new jobs, new challenges and new prospects.
After our two little boys started school, I decided to take the plunge and start my own business. I wanted to do all of the bits that I loved most in my jobs – writing, design and helping people to see what’s unique about them – and RLC Words began.
I live in Milton Keynes, but it doesn’t matter where you are; I work with clients both near and far.
Words and websites are my passion, and I’d love to make them work for you.
This photo is me clutching the first published book I’ve had a hand in proofreading and editing – a very proud moment and a dream come true! Huge thanks to Carol Wright of Healthy Minds Matter for commissioning me to help.

Internal Comms Manager
I started in a temp job, and worked my way through project support, project and programme management, to Corporate Communications, and finally Internal Communications Manager. Writing was a major part of every job I did, from meeting minutes to persuasive report writing for the top decision-makers. I loved my 10 years at North Yorkshire Police.

Co-Founder and Director
Bringing these two into the world changed everything, of course, and they’ve changed my career too. With stacks of support from Mr RLC Words, I’m doing the job I’ve always dreamed of – and some bits I’d never imagined too. It gives me flexibility, creativity – and lots of blog material…
