Writing and editing: making it clear, keeping it simple

When I write something from scratch for you, or polish up something you (or a committee) have already written, your organisation’s voice and ethos will shine through. Setting the right tone (like serious, lively, reassuring, encouraging) and speaking directly to readers, inspires confidence in you and your message.

Flexible and reliable

I can help you with one element, or manage a project from concept through to final design, proof and print. Whatever, you’ll find that I’m easy to work with, adaptable and reliable.

Knowing the context

I can deal intelligently with almost any topic/issue relevant to social policy and social justice in Scotland. Some areas of expertise include equalities, violence against women and gender-based violence. I’ve also worked on topics such as environment, good food, housing, family/parenting, childcare, refugee/asylum-seeking, education and skills, social enterprise and more.
