My passion is to assist writers from all fields to present their thoughts in a coherent and cohesive way, without intruding on their own voice - and I'll undertake written work of any length from just one paragraph to a Doctoral thesis.
When editing for academics, I encourage the Plain English style of writing.
For online copywriting, I keep true to the brand's writing style. I also give advice regarding the online look and feel of website/blog/catalogue design.
