Copywriting & editing

I have over a decade’s experience creating effective communications for business and government.

Effective communication is clear, comprehensible and lively. It reflects the values of your organisation by having a suitable tone (conversational vs formal) and a professional polish (free from errors). It has a logical structure that is intuitive to readers.

I’m a strong advocate for accessibility. Good ideas deserve to be intelligible to a wide audience, and even when writing for a highly sophisticated reader, clear language will usually be more powerful. I put in a lot of effort so the reader doesn’t have to.

I’ve worked extensively with strategic design consultancies and am familiar with human-centred design and agile methodology.
