Something missing/not right in your document?

–- Get an expert's eye and experience.

Since my childhood I have always loved books, newspapers and magazines – in particular those that are clearly and succinctly written.  Yes, I was someone who loved semi-colons, unusual fonts and only read 'Classic' novels.


So it was no surprise that, in 2003, I tackled my childhood dream of becoming a journalist.  Starting out on the Shropshire Star, I quickly moved up to The Daily Telegraph and Guardian (working as a freelance feature writer).


Now, in my previous career what I had really enjoyed was sharing my knowledge – so others could learn, and improve their skills.  So in 2008 I fused together my interests and became a trainer in business and non-fiction writing skills ... meanwhile, I had also started doing copywriting and copyediting.

Based in Oxford, many of my clients are here in Oxfordshire, London and the Thames Valley – but I have also delivered training far beyond - from Southampton to Saudi Arabia, and Birmingham to Brussels.


When not working, I am an active member of the following writing groups/organisations:


Writers in Oxford (chair)
*  Oxford Publishing Society
*  Society for Editors and Proofreaders (former co-ordinator, Oxford group)
*  West Oxford Reading Group
*  National Union of Journalists
