I offer writing, editing and content strategy services and support. Generally I charge by the hour, but I am happy to discuss per word/flat project rates too. All enquiries will receive a 15 minute work sample from me free and without obligation. This sample helps us create an in principle agreement before we proceed. Every job is unique so it’s important to get a sense of each other’s style before we begin. I can estimate from what you’ve given me, how long the job might take and put together a rough quote for you. We may need to revisit that as the project unfolds but it’s important that you don’t get an invoice from me that you weren’t expecting.
Whatever the story, they all need to be written first and almost all of them need a damn good edit. You can complicate it all you like, but at the centre of whatever you’re trying to do is story. You just need to find it, then get it out into the world. I’m a writer and an editor first and after almost a decade of freelancing I know that these simple crafts are at the heart of every story being told well. The digital revolution gave birth to content strategy and that’s where fresh and well made content comes to life.
I engage with your ideas, then build on them with you, and design structures around them to define all the aspects of what your story is and who you want to tell it to. Life is where the stories happen and all the stories somehow need to be told. Including yours. I can help you find you story and then work with you to develop creative and practical ways to tell it. If you need written content, edited content, strategy for your content or social media guidance – make sure you hire great people. Hire me.
Videos – Photos – Business Strategy – SEO – Audio – Translation.
These tend to cover most of the needs of a creative small business in today’s digital world. If you need any of these services, look no further.
It’s important to stay inspired and motivated so I collaborate with other people when the opportunity presents itself. I have a lot of great skills but recognised a long time ago that I don’t need to do everything, I just need to know other people who can. I could not offer the full service that I do without these people on my speed dial. Check out their websites for more information and let me know if you need more information about any of them. If you contact them – make sure you tell them Melinda sent you.
