Service Description

* Proofreading/editing - I can check any kind of written work whether it be a novel or an essay and make sure it is free of all spelling, grammatical and formatting errors.

* Ghostwriting - Have an idea for a story (fiction & non-fiction) but feel you lack the skill or experience to make it shine? Then I'd be honored to help polish your gem of an idea into something special.

* Website content - A website needs to really pop to get a persons attention and I can help you with that either by writing all the core text for your site or by providing regular, scintillating copy.

* Blog posts - It's hard to come up with new ideas each day/week for a blog and sometimes it's just hard to find the time. I'd be happy to make your life a little easier.

* Articles - Whether it be for a magazine or a website, whether it needs to be about Anglo-Saxons or zebras, I'll write you copy bound to entertain and keep readers on your magazine/website.

* Speeches - Struggling to put pen to paper for a wedding or other public event? I'll give you a speech that'll have them rolling in the aisles or crying in their drinks - both costs extra ;).

* Poems - Telling someone the way you feel is always difficult even harder if you want to be original but what can be sweeter and more thoughtful than a poem penned just for them?

* Any writing-related project you can think of - I take on all sorts of jobs, big or small. If you want something not on the above list please get in touch.
