What I do

I write simple words that keep people reading.

Words that connect with people like you and I. That sound like a friendly chat.

I turn what you want to say into words we want to read. A bit like a translation service.

It’s difficult to find the time or the objectivity to successfully write your own websites and materials. And it’s a risk – if you don’t click with your audience, they can be tough to win back.

Communication has changed. You don’t need to display your expertise through complex, formal language any more.

We feel emotionally attached to organisations, products and services. We want to care about you.

It’s time to start telling us your stories.

I listen to what you want to say and write engaging words that do you justice.

A bit more about what I do

Not all readers are the same. Some like lots of background, others just want the headlines. I encourage you to give readers the choice about how far to dial up the detail. I’ll make the words work for different audiences.

Here’s some of the things I write. If you don’t see what you’re thinking of, it doesn’t mean I don’t do it.

  • Website content – refreshing existing or creating new
  • Internal or customer communications
  • Marketing and branding materials
  • Corporate and traditional storytelling
  • Newspaper and magazine articles
  • Blogs
  • Ghostwriting
  • Press releases
  • B2B materials
  • App commands
  • Instructional text
  • Reporting

Proper writing probably doesn’t cost as much as you think. If you don’t need a full-time writer, just pay a friendly professional for the time you need.

Because I focus solely on writing, there isn’t a long list of other charges. And the more you have an idea of what you want to say – bullet points, short descriptions – the less time I spend gathering information.

It doesn’t matter where in the world you are. I work remotely, with prices including free face-to-face Skype chat and screen sharing. This way, I get more done and don’t waste your time and money with travel costs or endless meetings.

I charge by day, half day, or better still at discounted fees for an agreed project length. I love working for charities and community interest companies too so I promise you rock bottom rates. Indeed, I offer a free writing service to local not-for-profits. See here for more details.

Your peace of mind is important to me, which is why I hold full professional indemnity insurance. Other writers may not.

I know brilliant photographers, graphic designers, film makers and brand agencies that I can happily hook you up with too.
