Writing - it's all in the tone...

Easy reading is damn hard writing. But if it’s right, it’s easy. It’s the other way round, too. If it’s slovenly written, then it’s hard to read.
— Maya Angelou

One of the keys to effective writing is that it has a style that is appropriate to and engages its intended audience...

As I like to say in job applications, "I possess excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, and have the ability to interact effectively with people from a diverse range of professional, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds".

What this means is that I can tailor a bespoke piece of writing to your specific needs, so that it speaks to the audience you want to engage. Whether it's high-falutin' business talk, plain English for the person in the street or low-brow gutter drawl, I speak and write them all fluently and will happily do so for you.

Grant writing is a particular specialisation of mine and I have written, edited and proofed applications for academics seeking ARC or NHMRC funding, as well as for organisations in the not-for-profit and disability services sectors.

I am a skilled business copywriter, having scribed everything from media releases, to case studies, to reports outlining the proceedings of high level administrative reviews. I have composed formal correspondence, high level speeches and recorded minutes for meetings with representatives of government and private industry at the highest levels.

My CV as a professional copywriter also includes SEO content creation for websites, articles for professional and business blogs, the design and content of marketing brochures for postgraduate academic programs and the production of intricate and (believe it or not) highly engaging PowerPoint presentations. You've heard the phrase "death by PowerPoint"?  Well not on my watch pal!
