I am an experienced writer with a passion for language and accuracy, combining 25 years of experience in journalism, academic writing and teaching, editing/proofreading, teaching English to non-native speakers, and creative fiction and non-fiction writing. 

With an eye for detail, I can help you produce written work that you'll be proud of. I focus on finding the right words, correcting grammar and punctuation, as well as making your work more concise so it fits word limits and sounds stronger and more convincing. 

My own writing has included:

*News stories

*Feature articles

*Copywriting for advertisements and promotional material (clients have included businesses from Europe, the Middle East, and Central America)

*Website content

*Academic papers

*PhD thesis

*Policy documents

*Fiction and non-fiction books (in progress)

If you are a non-native English speaker who requires the highest standard of written English for school, university, or work; or an English speaker who requires a localisation service, I look forward to helping you.
