I allow my work to speak for itself and endeavour to meet client needs through communicating well and often if need be, to ascertain exactly what the company or individual hopes to achieve with the text.
I can deliver a wide range of texts from creative, imaginative to the factual, academic or reports. Research and painstaking attention to the finer points are strengths I have and honestly, if it...

Service Description

I am able to edit for syntax, structure and content to provide clear, relevant copy for your projects. My 18 years of teaching in secondary schools in Australia and tertiary institutions overseas in Israel has given me extensive experience in correcting and refining texts both for projects and for publication.
My strengths are in effective communication built up in the years spent teaching and a genuine liking for people and communicating efficiently with them.
Story telling and creative writing are other strengths and I work at honing these skills on a daily basis.
I am also proficient in providing copy for flyers, brochures and some graphics if need be on a basic functional level.
Editing websites for grammatical and expression errors, content and giving feedback through writing reviews and articles are some other services I provide. I am updating and expanding my skills consistently, as I believe that change and learning should be a constant in any person's life.
