Service Description

Having spent more than 10 years in journalism and PR in both in-house and agency roles, I understand how well-written copy can make a positive difference to your bottom line.

It's crucial that businesses, small or large, present a professional yet approachable face to their stakeholders - be they customers, competitors or shareholders, and I can help ensure your press releases, marketing literature, letters, emails, web content, features and advertisements are well written and effective.

I am experienced in a wide variety of sectors including shipping, logistics, agriculture, education, agriculture, foodservice and food manufacture, and am equally happy writing a technical piece as producing catchy, memorable copy for an ad.

Not only can I offer fantastic copywriting, editing and proofing that's second-to-none, I am also friendly, professional and will work hard to make sure I deliver a high-quality service.

In a nutshell, contact me if you need any of the following services:

Press releases
Copywriting
Editing
Proofreading
Media relations
Crisis communications
