I specialise in editing and polishing all kinds of copy to ensure factual correctness, grammar, spelling, style, tone, and readability, as well as write feature articles for a wide range of topics.
How can I help you?
Editing and proofreading - With my extensive experience and excellent language ability, there is no error that will slip through the net. Let me at your copy to make it shine with reader-friendly and grammatically correct language. I can improve any existing text, or start from scratch.
Feature writing and short pieces - Need a lot said in a limited word count? You can rely on me to produce engaging, reader-focussed text, packed with key information and refreshingly free of waffling. Whether it’s conversational, formal or specialist language, your audience will be addressed in a voice they understand and listen to.
Direct mail and BLT brochures - Providing first-rate copy that draws in readers like a personally written letter, my carefully crafted language ensures not a trace of the impersonal and mass-produced.
Press releases and sales pitches - Get your business noticed with compelling, key-word rich text that will have customers lining up to try you out. Don’t let boring writing, bad spelling and clumsy grammar give your business the wrong image.
Proposals - Find the business, and I’ll help secure it with compelling and convincing text that will give people the confidence that you are the right person to invest in.
Creative consultation - Need guidance or constructive criticism for wording, design, aesthetics or angle? Need a sounding board or a brainstorming partner? My creative, engaging, problem-solving personality will find a workable solution quickly.
I offer a flexible and comprehensive service that is reliable and professional. I am pleasant and easy to work with, quality is assured, and I always meet my deadlines.
