Freelance editor and writer


Do you need content edited or written for print or online?

I’m a freelance editor and writer, and can help you produce concise, fresh and accurate content that clearly conveys your message.

NOTE: I’m travelling from 2 July to 26 August 2019. I’ll receive emails, but will not be in a position to take on new projects until I return.

Science, health and the environment

I work mainly in the areas of science, health and the environment – particularly on material aimed at a public audience. I’m a big fan of plain English, and will happily edit technical or bureaucratic text to make it much clearer to understand and more enjoyable to read.

Most of my clients are government bodies or organisations in science, education or publishing. I also work for a number of other science communication agencies and individuals.

I’m a professional member of the Institute of Professional Editors (IPEd), and until June 2019 was the communication officer for the state branch, Editors Victoria. For over four years (2015–19) I edited and distributed the monthly newsletter for Editors Victoria. See more about me.
