Writing Made Right

 

If you’ve got the challenge of running a small organisation, or a program or a small business, you’re probably trying to wear four or five hats at the same time. A great can-do attitude is a fabulous thing, but sometimes its quicker and easier to have someone else do some of the small (but important) jobs that always end up taking you much longer than you’d planned.

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. You can send small on-demand tasks for a super fast response, or you can bundle a number of tasks together on a regular or casual basis.

Our specialised, fast and cost effective services allow you to spend your time and energy on what you do best.

Proofreading – correcting 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.

Technical Writing for Business and Not-for-Profit organisations – writing or polishing your project and sponsorship proposals, grant applications, tenders, quotes, instructions, policies and procedures, constitutions, speeches, minutes, annual reports etc.

Business Writing for Short Term Rental Hosts – crafting text and captions for short-stay accommodation platforms (AirBnB, Booking.com etc) and production of friendly and informative online or on-paper Guest Books.
