I’m currently available for the following kinds of work:
Websites – If you’ve never created one, I can either do it for you or show you how
Copy-writing – for press, business and web
Internet – Homepages, blog updates, articles, etc all with or without SEO in mind
Marketing/advertising copy – above and below the line
Press releases and advertorials
Reviews/critiques – music, film & TV; books & theatre; events; restaurants, etc
Speech writing – weddings, business, charity, etc
CV enhancement & interview technique/coaching
English language help for foreign nationals
As a writer, I’m a firm believer in using plain English to communicate. A lot of people say that I write how I speak which I think is a good thing. I’m quite a direct person in real life and I think that comes across on the page as well.
I don’t believe in using a dozen words when a couple of well-chosen ones will suffice so it’s just as well that I don’t charge by the word !
One of my strengths is the ability to listen to a client explain what they want to do, before turning that conversation into the finished article … sometimes, literally.
The initial consultation is always free.
We’ll talk about what you’re looking for from me and explore the background to the task before getting down to the details of the project. I like to get back to clients with thoughts and ideas quite quickly and will usually include ideas for a first draft and an outline of what I intend to do, depending on the nature of the job, along with an estimate of the fee.
Quotes will include research where necessary, so that the price is all-inclusive.
You may be after some help with your CV or perhaps you need a hand writing a speech for a wedding ? Or you could be thinking about a website for your business and don’t know where to start … as you probably say to clients of your own “There’s no job too small”.
I know some of this can be quite daunting for some people, but as Dr.Pepper once famously said: “What’s the worst that can happen?”
