Writing & Editing

... by Ruby Cowling


Need some words?

I have been writing in the public, private and voluntary sectors for 15 years. I've produced marketing material, website content, research reports, comic mini-features and more or less anything you can put together using the Roman alphabet.

With strong research & analytical skills, I enjoy making your complex information accessible - and, where appropriate, entertaining - for a wide audience.

My natural writing styles range from clear, concise & corporate to quirky, warm & humorous. For your sake and mine, I commit to avoiding cliché in all its forms.

Need some tidying?

I also offer editing services, from proofreading to back-to-bare-bones rewrites. If you think your existing text needs something, but you're not sure what, I'll work with you to get it to where you want it to be - whether it needs only reassurance and signing-off, or major surgery.

"I try to leave out the parts readers tend to skip." - Elmore Leonard
