Writing is more than words, but a form of living art. 

About Truthful Taboos

What's in a name?

If there is one thing we stand for as a brand and company is the truth. This truth that we pride ourselves on - stands as the backbone of our ethos and what helps us to thrive creatively. Oftentimes it is said that the truth is a matter of perspective but for us, the truth starts and ends with the word of God and we understand that this viewpoint can be seen as 'taboo'.


Some may wonder how this relates to a copywriting and proofreading agency but we believe the scriptures to be the most powerful yet beautifully written words - ever! And with a passion to creatively bring words to life, we are immensely inspired by the original life-giving words of God that brought all of creation into existence.

Our mission

Established with the heart of writers and readers in mind. We exist to produce original copy, teach and help improve established and aspiring writers.


For us, writing is more than just words but is a form of living art and solidifies the foundation of our mission as a copywriting agency.
