My editing services include copyediting and structural (substantive) editing. As your copy editor, I edit your document or manuscript for grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalisation and consistency in style and formatting. As your structural editor, I look at your document, manuscript or publication as a whole and ensuring that the focus, structure, language, style and format suit its purpose and readership.

My clients are often surprised at how much better the narrative logic moves story forward and every sentence along the way sings with meaning, depth and resonance.


My copywriting services cover pretty much all topics in all media (online, email, print, screen and radio). Whether it’s selling a product or service or telling a news story, I specialise in getting my head around a subject quickly enough to write on it with authority and credibility. As an ideas writer, I can solve any communications problem with strategic precision.

My clients have found my style of writing clear, concise and compelling. That’s because I always begin by getting clear, precise and insightful in my thinking.


Or you and I can work together as co-writers on your project. My clients have found this collaborative-writing approach incredibly helpful (and even inspiring) for getting the work done on message, on time and on budget.

As a professional structural+copy editor, copywriter and qualified educator, I bring the 4Cs into every working relationship — Critical Thinking, Effective Communication, Constructive Collaboration and Refreshing Creativity — throughout our journey from first draft to final draft.

Perhaps my key point of difference from my fellow editors out there is that last C — Creativity. Solving writerly problems — synthesising information, articulating ideas, structuring narrative, showing the telling — is something I am particularly good at.

As a copywriter, art director and creative director from the advertising industry (1981 – 2003), I am very ideas-driven, both textually and visually. This enables me to be a very effective problem solver in the articulation of thoughts, messages and narratives.

All my clients love the collaborative writing approach for two reasons: it is a remarkably effective way to produce quality content and it is a very enjoyable way of working with an editor/copywriter.
