Writing Made Right

 

I’ve been writing, proofreading and editing business and technical documents for more than twenty years. I have a proven track record of getting work done on time and on budget. I can make your writing clearer, easier to follow and more engaging to make you and your business or organisation look more polished and more professional. Writing that needs a light fine-tuning will take less time than work that requires a major makeover before publication (on paper or on your website or on social media pages) – you pay for only what is needed. Less mess in your documents or on your website means less stress for you. And that’s always a good thing.

Proofreading – checking text – spelling & punctuation errors, fixing incorrect or clunky grammar. Checking hyphenation, treatment of key terms, formatting etc., including website microcopy, weblinks and visual components.

Editing – reviewing outlines, editing text (improving structure, content, language, style and presentation), checking sequencing and lists, checking headlines, checking transitions.

Checking Website Microcopy –  checking text on buttons, labels and instructions in fields/error boxes (the little things that help users ‘do ‘stuff’ on your website) because – good or bad – these all affect the user’s experience of your website.

Checking Social Media Posts – reviewing your news/blog posts and social posts before publication to catch errors and tweak tone or content.

Checking Online Newsletters and Email Campaigns – editing or proofreading of your online newsletters before publication.

Checking Facts – checking the accuracy of information presented as fact and checking references or quotes against original sources for all documents, online posts and newsletters.
