Service Description

I write, edit and advise on: ebooks, articles, blogs, websites, newsletters, social media, media releases, grant applications, tenders, capability statements, business proposals, professional profiles, and more.

My strength is working with long-form content, bringing ideas together to ensure clarity, consistency and cohesiveness. I ensure the structure, messaging and flow of your writing truly engages readers.

I can edit existing content or write from scratch. I can conduct an audit on all your communications, assessing where changes need to be made and recommending a strategy for future communications. For non-English speaking clients, I ensure your writing reflects a genuine, native-English tone.

Whatever your writing goals, Iíll help you share your message with the world in a way that is uniquely you.
