COPYWRITING, EDITING & PROOFREADING

I craft copy that helps you raise your game. With skills spanning copywriting, editing and proofreading, I offer a holistic understanding of how to weave words that work best for my clients and their audiences. 


I am known for my ability to see both the forest and the trees: understanding the overall aims of a project and combining this with my excellent attention to detail. I bring clarity, creativity and insight to the writing and editing process. 


I understand your world and can offer a fresh pair of eyes. By specialising in the arts and creative industries, I have a deep appreciation of the content, terminology, and nuances of language involved in projects in this field.


At the same time, as a freelancer, I am a 'useful outsider' offering a different perspective that often enables a greater level of fluency and accuracy than when writing and editing are carried out in-house. 


You can rely on me. My calm and thorough approach will help you relax in the knowledge you are in safe hands. I meet every deadline agreed, delivering work that exceeds expectations and makes a real difference to my clients.


Many of the projects I work on require NDAs, either because they are pre-publication or because they relate to yet-to-be-announced high-profile and sometimes highly sensitive projects. Clients know I will always maintain complete confidentiality throughout.


I'm nice to work with! I approach everything with the spirit of curiosity and collaboration – always excited by new ideas and never afraid to ask incisive questions. 

To give you an idea of the services I offer, some of my recent projects include:​

  • writing web copy and product descriptions for a luxury jewellery brand

  • proofediting translated wording into natural English for an international arts organisation's events programme

  • editing a successful bid to deliver a high-profile global conference

  • proofreading an exhibition catalogue

  • transcribing and editing recorded panel discussions for an international arts symposium

  • sensitivity editing for an artist's publication

 

"I worked with Pip on a pitch to the government of Canada which had to be in British English, with many international people feeding into the copy. Not only was she very efficient, she was a pleasure to work with and super flexible which is always key when working to intense deadlines! I would highly recommend her."
