Writing and Editing Services

I am a copy writer, content editor and proof reader, helping people tell stories and making complicated topics easy to understand.

As a freelancer, I am particularly interested in working with social enterprises and charities, especially in the areas of health and social care. If your work is making a difference to people’s lives, I’d really like to help you shout about it.

I LOVE writing:

  • Articles
  • Blog posts
  • Instructions
  • “How to” guides
  • Press releases
  • Website pages
  • Constructive error messages!
  • Facebook posts
  • Tweets

I’ll also proofread all of the above and more, including infographics, booklets, leaflets and anything else you think might need a second pair of eyes.

If you’re looking for a flexible, experienced writer who understands the web – or simply for a content editor who isn’t afraid of a bit of code – get in touch.

The techie stuff

HTML. CSS. SEO. CMS. WTF? The words on the page might be working for you but do you know what’s going on behind the scenes? Will your content be visible to everyone, regardless of the device they’re reading it on? Where do you rank in the search engine results, and how can you improve that?

I’ve been producing digital content since the 90s, so I know how people use websites – and how your organisation can benefit from understanding the ‘user journey’. If you’re looking for someone to translate the techie talk into plain English and give you practical advice instead of stats and jargon, let me know.

Recommendations

Dan Jones, Head of Multiplatform, Maverick Television:

Emma is primarily an excellent writer, turning her hand to longer form articles and TV-related content with equal aplomb, bringing a sub’s eye and great attention to detail. She’s also a social media fiend who could comfortably handle a brand’s social media strategy, knows her way around the trickiest of content management systems, has experience with high pressure web chats alongside live TV, and is a first class photographer and picture editor.

Lucy Searle, Editor, www.channel4.com/4homes:

I worked with Emma Wright for five years on the 4Homes website, during which time she showed a flair for writing accurate, lively and SEO friendly digital content. She also demonstrated her sound technical ability on a daily basis. Dependable? Yes. Knowledgeable? Definitely.
