For business writers

Here’s a bit more detail of how we can work together to get your project over the line. Or feel free to call me and we can talk through the options.

Editing

Are you getting your ideas and information across in the most effective way for your readers? I can make sure your message is clear and compelling, and pitched at the right tone for your readers.

My specialties include refreshing web copy that’s become tired and unwieldy, translating bureauspeak into plain English, untangling multi-authored documents that have got themselves into a knot.

Lu took a document that was the product of a few people’s co-writing,
which did not have an executive summary, a clear flow or a punchy
wrap up, and turned it in to a well bookended piece that took you
through the story in a succinct and well structured way.

Co-writing & coaching combo

Have you made a start on something then ground to a halt? Not sure which way to go next? Let’s write it together.

This collaborative process begins with me creating an outline based on your rough draft and an in-depth phone call. This will give you direction to flesh out some detail for the next draft, which I will then edit, adding or rewriting sections if needed.  There might be a number of iterations until we get it exactly where you want it.

An added bonus of working this way is that you will hone your writing skills for your next project.

Here’s what a client had to say about this process:

I found Lu’s partnership invaluable in developing an information and
marketing package for our potential clients. She has a rare ability
to grasp complex concepts very quickly.  As a result she is able
to simplify, shape and develop supporting materials on any
topic for any audience, and within a short timeframe.

Got the ideas and information but no time to put them together? Let me do the heavy lifting.

Here’s a link to a recent writing job as a sample:

Proofreading

About to go to print? Proofreading ensures everything is present and correct, including headings, captions, tables, graphs and page numbers, and is a final check of grammar, spelling, punctuation and style.
