Helping you write your story

Copy-editing, Proofreading and Design

I have extensive experience of copy-editing, proofreading and designing presentations, proposals and other materials for learning, sales and business contexts.

Here are examples of feedback I received and sample presentation graphics I created.

Clare – thank you for your hard work – it looked good. Professional and easy to work with as always! Thanks.


This looks great, it captures the different elements and unites them. You are brilliant.

You did a wonderful job on presenting the material and helping us to think about the best way of expressing our ideas, thank you and it was a pleasure working with you, as usual.


A thing of beauty! Thanks!


Wow!!! The presentation is really enhanced with Clare's changes and editing. It helps tell a compelling story that is focused on benefits to the client. Clare – thank you for your excellent work and support in finalizing the proposal.

The client loved the red thread that was evident in the deck – thank you and beautifully done! Thanks!


Creative Writing and Storytelling

My love of expressing ideas and narratives through images and words started in my childhood and has continued ever since. I have a growing stack of ideas for picture books, graphic novels and short stories awaiting my attention!

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Ali Smith, prize-winning author, while she was Guest Director of the Brighton Festival. Ali mentioned that she was looking for anecdotes about libraries for a book she was writing. I emailed her some of my thoughts, and she included a part in her book Public Library and Other Stories (review on Guardian website).

...a really huge thank you for writing back to me about libraries, this is a big help and beautifully put, especially the way that libraries lead us to what we didn't know we were looking for. It's well said. I'm really grateful.
