What I do

My specialty is writing and editing. But I’m an all-round business communications expert — I don’t just focus on language.

I provide services at each stage of creating written communication, from strategy and planning to writing, editing and proofreading.

 I can also build websites (WordPress, WIX, Elementor), design layouts and do desktop publishing (InDesign), and manage publication.*

*”How can you be good at such a wide range of tasks?,” you ask. 

In the course of a 30-year career I’ve been employed in all of these roles. Once I’d learnt InDesign, WordPress, HTML code, etc., or how to prepare a document for print, I kept on using those skills regularly! It adds variety for me, and it’s convenient and efficient for my clients.

 

How I write

I deliver expertly-written communication for your web, print or audiovisual channels. You’ll get texts that:

  • use the right terminology and tone of voice for your audience
  • create a positive brand impression, build trust and drive action
  • are well written, in plain English that anyone can understand, without jargon or corporate-speak
  • clearly convey your information and key messages.

My process to deliver great text

  1. Get to know you and your business
  2. Understand what you want to communicate
  3. Identify gaps, inconsistencies, mistakes or irrelevant content
  4. Identify key messages and calls to action
  5. Think about branding, language and tone of voice  
  6. Plan the narrative structure
  7. Write the new text  
  8. Review, revise, finalize. And publish.

Result: A track record of happy customers

I’m proud to say that texts I write and edit are nearly always approved for publication right from the first draft. All that groundwork pays off, to avoid time-consuming reviews, corrections and updates.
