To determine which service you require, please see the descriptions below.
Writing & copywriting: Your ideas, my words. I’ll carefully listen to your specific requirements and gain a thorough understanding of your target audience. Then I’ll go away and produce clear, well-written content that reflects your individual voice and conveys your message with style and professionalism.
Editing: You’ve got a draft but the text could be punchier and more concise. I’ll hone your content into a streamlined piece of work and ensure your message doesn’t get lost in waffle. I’ll also check the document for overall sense, grammar and spelling.
Proofreading: Your content is ready to go… or so you think. It’s always prudent to have a fresh pair of eyes to check your work for grammatical accuracy, spelling errors and major inconsistencies before you submit your final copy. Nine times out of ten there will be something you’ve missed, especially if you’ve been staring at it for days.
Communications: Now that you’ve got the perfect content, you may need some help with your communications strategy. How do you reach your target audience? Journals, social media, PR? Do not despair – I’m here to support you.
Below are some of the types of content I work on. This list is not exhaustive – please get in touch to discuss your specific needs.
- Website content
- Feature articles
- Internal business communications
- Reports and white papers
- Brochures and leaflets
- Press materials
As each writing assignment is unique, I negotiate fees on a case-by-case basis. I charge by the hour for editing/proofreading existing documents or shorter writing assignments, or by the project for substantial writing projects.
My fees are competitive and transparent. Before any project begins, we will agree a rate together, in writing, so you will know exactly what you can expect to pay. Please contact me for a free quote.
