Which service do you need?
Research and development
When you’re still at the ideas stage, I explore the best way forward and gather relevant resources, working with you or on your behalf.
Writing / rewriting
I use your notes / first draft as a starting point, or I write copy for you from scratch.
I edit what you’ve written to
- improve structure
- increase fluency, clarity and consistency, and
- maximise impact
Services range from evaluations and developmental editing to line editing and copy-editing.
When your material is almost there, I check it for small but potentially costly errors and inconsistencies that are really hard to spot in your own work.
Examples: research and writing, or editing plus a final proofread.
If you’re not sure which service you need and you’d like to know more, please contact me.
I’ll quote you a no-obligation custom price according to your needs, goals and budget. I’ll summarise all costs for your approval before I start work.
