Text services

Apart from writing this blog, I am working on a novel.

I also offer a variety of text services.

Many years experience of writing and engaging in written discussion have given me a wide range of skills.

These can be boiled down to the effort to gather together the right words and set them down in the correct order, with a tone and flow appropriate to their immediate use or function. This is not always as easy as it appears.

Specifically, I can:

  • proof-read and copy-edit academic papers, dissertations and theses in the Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities;
  • proof-read, edit and write letters, leaflets and brochures;
  • communicate an essential message in clear ordinary language;
  • analyse technical and formal discourse;
  • condense large amounts of information;
  • tutor basic writing skills;
  • offer general communication advice;
  • help non-native English speakers to make themselves understood;
  • design simple DTP layouts with standard templates.

I charge professional hourly rates for academic and corporate work and concessionary rates on a sliding scale for private work.
