Services

How can I help you?

Let me count the ways…

1. Writing

No time (or skills) to write about your brilliant products, outstanding services or exceptional expertise?

2. Editing

You write the content.
I restructure, polish and tweak it.
Let me just sharpen my pencil…

3. Proofreading

Your writing’s excellent and you’re thorough, but you’d love it checked for those inevitable, pesky errors.

4. Content Review

How’s your current content working? Engaging your audience? Looking a bit dated? Not hitting the mark? Let’s find out why.

5. Visual Content

Images are a must-have.
I source, curate, edit, prepare, (and, if needs be, clear copyright for) the best images for your content.

6. Retainer Agreement

Q: How do you benefit from a retainer agreement?
A: You pay a monthly fee.
I create regular content.

Writing

Writing your own content can be a PITA if you’re better at other things, or your time’s limited.

I write your bios & profiles, magazine articles, blog posts, website content, case studies, emails and other business communications.

If you’re a business manager, you’ll already know clear, quality communication is key to your business success.

As a marketing manager or subject-matter expert, you’ll want your target audience excited about your stunning R&D results, exceptional information and specialist materials.

As your freelance writer, let me lighten your load and connect with your audience.

After all your hard work, you want your audience’s eyes to shine, not glaze over—right?

Editing

When would editing be a good option for you?

  • You’re a ‘waffler’ and your writing always needs culling
  • You write in science, tech or business jargon
  • You assume your audience understands as much as you do
  • Your expertise is extraordinary but your grammar and spelling are… well, ordinary
  • You know your products or services inside-out but your writing’s a mess

Most of us can’t see what’s amiss in our own content.

As your editor, I spot the gaps that need bridges, engineer your structure, clean up messy grammar, and manage the tone and pitch that’s right for your audience.

Editing’s a great way to achieve perfectly polished content that makes sense to those reading it.

You provide the content. I’ll polish it up so you don’t have to.

Let’s make your communications shine!

Proofreading

You don’t need to hire me as a writer or editor to benefit from my proofreading skills. Just call me in at the end and set me loose.

After years of experience in publishing and design, proofreading is the bane of my life.

Wait, what…?

You read it right. I can’t read a novel or a news-feed without spotting the typos, or glitches in letter-spacing and grammar.

And I’d bet money there’s no book or website on this planet that doesn’t have a typo or spacing error in it—somewhere.

Yours (and mine) will too. It’s a Universal Law. But we can minimise them, a lot.

Even the best writers, editors and yes—proof-readers—shake their heads at the one that got away after ten people checked it.

Regardless of my proofreading ‘affliction’, you benefit—because what’s within my power to correct will be corrected.

Content Review

If you’re unsure if your content’s hitting the mark, ask me about a content review.

You might know something’s amiss but can’t put your finger on it. I can help by bringing fresh eyes to what you can no longer see.

I’ll review what’s happening, see what’s working and what’s not. The review can be concise or detailed, with a content marketing strategy to follow if needs be.

Let’s face it. We can all write, but not all writing is effective.

Your content needs to be effectively presented to achieve your marketing objectives.

A content review is a great first step to get your business communications working again.

Can’t see the wood for the trees?

Let’s review and see where it’s at.

Visual Content

Great images work as hard for you as quality copywriting works.

Combine the two and pow! you have a content marriage made in heaven.

I find images that enhance your written content—with the result being greater than the sum of the parts.

My experiences as a med-sci illustrator (in university and museum environments), a graphic designer, and an image content coordinator for an award-winning publisher means I’ve the skills to make your visual content shine.

I find your images via commissioned, bespoke, stock, or archival sources.

With expertly curated images, your content hikes up to the next level.

A picture does more than tell a thousand words.

Ready for the magical combo…?

Retainer Agreement

Ready to publish or update content on a regular basis, without cracking the whip or creating it yourself?

Imagine quality  content being presented to you on a regular basis for a set fee.

No more headaches creating it—or finding someone who can. No more surprise quotes or overblown budgets.

With a retainer agreement, you have a set monthly expense for a set amount of content each month.

First, we confirm we’re a good fit over one or two one-off projects. If it’s all go, we commit to three months.

You’ll have peace of mind, knowing I’ll deliver the content you need, when you need it.

Sound like your kind of peace of mind?
