Freelance editor:

A number of clients ask if I’m an experienced editor or business writer who can improve their own copy. Definitely, as I’m a former editor of Hospitality magazine so I’m accustomed to tightening up copy, refining and clarifying key messages.

  • The 2015/16 annual report for The Sovereign Hill Museums Association
  • A lengthy report for the World Health Organisation, with urgent turnaround, in 2014.
  • Case studies and editing for the 2013-2014 annual report for Helen Macpherson Smith Trust

  • Content for the 2012-2013 annual report for Helen Macpherson Smith Trust, plus writing all case studies

  • The draft 2014 Economic Strategy for the City of Moonee Valley

  • Writing and editing entries in 2012 and 2013 for the Victorian Health Care Awards
