COPY AND SUB-EDITING
Do you need a letter, leaflet, email or job ad edited for sense and impact? Or the draft of a book, fiction or non-fiction. Large or small projects considered.
Are you thinking of reviewing your publishing portfolio? Or developing a new digital content strategy? My unbiased view of your needs and those of your audiences will help you make the right decisions.
I take your publishing projects from conception to publication in any medium. Liaising with authors, contributors, reviewers, approvers and production teams as needed.
EDITING EXPERTS FOR LAY READERS
Subject experts can sometimes struggle to put what they know into language the rest of us can understand. I work with them to help disseminate their valuable knowledge, whenever and wherever it's needed.
Millions of people in the UK struggle to make effective use of health and patient information. As an information producer, improving accessibility will be high on your agenda. I provide tried and trusted techniques and training.
DESIGN AND COMMISSIONING
I commission and work alongside experienced graphic designers where professional design is needed. Or, if you are looking for copy from an expert, I find the right people and brief them to produce to your needs.
I've led teams to achieve both NHS Information Standard and Patient Information Forum quality accreditation. I advise on how to make your information the best it can be.
RESEARCHING AND WRITING
Stories, articles, case studies, interviews and more. My skills in this area are backed by decades of experience as a journalist.
