Description of Business

I’m a friendly freelance wordsmith who looks forward to helping you succeed. I hold UK qualifications in the three separate skills of copywriting, editing and proofreading, and I’m a fan of plain English.

I write, rewrite, edit, ‘polish’, ‘make it sparkle’ – whatever you need. I work with marketing, business, informational and translated materials, such as web pages, leaflets, booklets, sales emails, service emails, briefings and user guides. Treating your ideas and requirements with respect, working carefully and getting things done on time are most important to me.

So if good writing isn’t your strong point or you need extra help to support your in-house team – for a special project, for example – why not ask me to do some of the hard work for you? I might even come up with a good suggestion or some fresh ideas.

Having started my freelance business in 2000, I’ve been lucky enough to work with some great clients. I initially gained editorial experience with book publishers and universities such as Blackwell Publishing, Elsevier Science Ltd, Oxford University Press and Royal Holloway University of London. I gained Advanced Professional membership of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP, formerly SfEP) and moved on to a range of writing and editing projects for management consulting and law firms as well as telecoms, utility, and construction and engineering companies.

My current clients include BT Business (with Muse Publishing Ltd), National Grid, Oliver Wyman (part of Marsh & McLennan Companies) and P&O Cruises (Carnival UK). In January 2017, I also joined the tutor team for the Publishing Training Centre’s editing skills distance learning course.
