Don't take my word for it: listen to what my clients say.


 

sensitive manuscript editing - from the big picture to the fine details

'The way that Heather approaches editing a novel is the way critics approach a Breughel painting - from the overall structure down to smallest details of each figure. The pleasure of working with her is that she switches from the broad to the narrow - and the other way around - in the same way that the author does.

'Her comments are not isolated grammatical or phraseological ones, but ideas that enhance the richness of the whole work in an organic way. A fantastic professional to work with!'

— Bappaditya Chakravarty, Author, Samudragupta: The Making of an Emperor


copyediting for business - Getting your brand voice just right

'Heather is a branding expert, and the best writer I have ever worked with. We hired her to copyedit all the language on our packaging: she could immediately write in the “Kooee voice” and made sure every word was perfect. The result has been high-value copy that gives customers a great first impression of our brand. We look forward to working with her again soon.'

— Andy Fist, Director, Kooee! Super Snacks


smart content writing and strategy

'Heather is a great writer to work with because she goes much deeper than the topic she’s working on. Every piece that Heather writes, she learns more about our brand, our values, and our readers - to the point where she now provides fantastic guidance on our overall content strategy. Heather has quickly become an irreplaceable member of the TAMGA team.'

— Eric Dales & Yana Barankin, Co-Founders, TAMGA Designs


insight and Professionalism

'Heather comes highly recommended for her editing and writing skills. When working for our organisation she has always shown insight, understanding and a clear sense of purpose. Her work is thoroughly researched, of a high standard, and always on time. Whether she's writing or editing for us, it’s always been a pleasure working with her.'

— Sarah Riches, Project Manager, Early Childhood Australia
