Writing and Editing

Are you looking for someone who can write for you or edit your work?

Do you need words but don't have time to write them yourself? I help people produce blog posts, articles for print, copy for magazines, and anything else you need writing.

I worked as a journalist for 15 years before becoming a freelance copywriter. I write with your audience in mind and in your tone of voice.

If you have copy that needs editing to make sure you’ve got the best angle and it all makes sense, I can help with that too.

Writing

Are you looking for original content which will inspire, inform, educate and entertain your customers? 

I help people with words for external and internal marketing. I get to know your business and who you are writing for. Then I produce content your target audience will find relevant and engaging.

I specialise in writing blog posts which show your expertise. 

I can help you write:

  • Websites
  • Brochures
  • Press releases
  • Magazines
  • Blogs
  • Social media
  • Author bios
  • About Me pages
  • Video scripts

Editing

I am an experienced editor who has worked on the newsdesk of a busy regional daily newspaper and edited websites for many years. I will get your copy polished and ready to go.

You can book editing in blocks of 4 hours for £160.

Get Your Story Straight

Have you written a press release or a guest article for publication and would like a professional to look at it before you send it off? I’ll get your story straight and flag up any issues so you can submit your copy with confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Writing projects vary in cost due to a number of factors, such as the amount of research involved. Once we’ve had a conversation about what you are looking for and the work involved, I’ll give you a quote. These prices will give you a guide:

Four blog posts of approximately 800 words cost £650.

Four hours of editing costs £160.

A copywriter is someone who writes words designed to persuade someone to take action, such as buying a product or service.

Copy is material traditionally written for print such as an advert or a newspaper article. 

I will talk to you about the purpose of the words you would like me to write and who your customers are.

I’ll ask you about the topic you have asked me to write about. If you have background information available I will read or listen to that. I can also research a topic for you, including carrying out interviews if required.

Yes I can. I regularly ghost write or produce ‘white label’ blogs and articles for clients. I write in your tone of voice based on the topic you give me. If you want to produce regular articles but do not have the time to write them yourself, or don’t enjoy the process of writing, talk to me.

I will write a draft and then up to two revisions. This gives us plenty of opportunity to discuss the copy.

How often you publish new articles is up to you. You might want to post every week or every month. I will work with you to draw up a schedule. We will look at what your blog posts should be about (there’s no point in writing articles for the sake of it), what the purpose of your blog is and how blogging fits with your overall communications strategy.

SEO

I work with SEO specialist Andrew Cock-Starkey. Blogging regularly will benefit your business but you also need to pay attention to the rest of your website. 

I can arrange an SEO audit of your website to ensure it is working hard for you. Andrew will check if you have any significant technical issues holding your site back in Google’s search results.

He can also check your Google Analytics set-up to make sure that you can properly track and monitor the increases in traffic your new blog content drives to your business.

What are the benefits of blogging for my business?

Blogging helps your business in a number of ways. You articles:

  • Show your expertise
  • Mark you and your company out as leader in your field
  • Are good for SEO and drive traffic to your website
  • Give you material you can share on social media
  • Help you develop your ideas and approach

Writing articles regularly means you show up for your audience, helping them to keep you in mind and get to know you.

Building an audience enables you to get feedback from your readers. You can also see what subjects resonate with your audience and what people want to know more about.
