Service Description

I write articles, web content and fiction. I'm used to thinking and writing about subjects including organic farming/gardening, sustainability, Christian life, home-schooling, hospitality (in the sense of welcoming strangers, not of entertaining expensively), media literacy, critical thinking, economic justice and bridging class divides. I'd be glad to research other areas and also to do proofreading, editing and rewriting.

I take my commitments seriously and adhere to deadlines. I strive to write clearly and engagingly and to acknowledge the nuances of my subject. I'm glad to write more or less formally and to adapt my style to suit your audience.

I write about issues that I know and care about. When I write for other people's publications I am glad to accept criticism and revise my work. I am also willing to have my work edited for length and style by clients, but I ask clients to consult me before changing the substance of what I have written.
