Do you need an editor or a writer?

I offer speechwriting, copywriting, and editing services to academics, businesses, and individuals. 

Speechwriting

I can edit a speech that you have already prepared, to whatever degree of completion, or research and write a speech from scratch. I’m particularly interested in storytelling and the construction of compelling narratives. However, each speech is unique and personalised, so please contact me to discuss your project. 

I am a member of the UK Guild of Speechwriters and the European Speechwriter Network. Confidentiality is guaranteed, though references can be made available on request.

Copywriting

If you provide me with a draft of a business report, press release, or marketing copy, I will ensure that it conveys your message clearly and concisely. I can work to your budget and schedule, for print and digital, to guarantee the highest quality professional communications. Please get in touch with your requirements.

Copy-editing 

I specialise in providing structure and clarity of expression to academic papers and professional documents. My academic background is in the humanities, but I’ve worked as an in-house editor for a STEM publisher (specifically, paediatric neurology). 

I have been a Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. 

Update February 2017: I am unable to take on large copy-editing projects, including books and PhD theses. I can occasionally accept shorter commissions (<30,000 words).
