I have two distinct writing services to choose from, depending on your level of need.
We rewrite your drafts together
I rewrite your drafts for you
Co-operwriting (or ‘cooperative writing’) is all about turning your ideas, notes, jottings, diaries and articles ~ or even a completed first draft ~ into a publishable piece of writing.
Working together to restructure and rework your draft is not about me doing it all for you, it’s about doing it together ~ hence the term ‘co-operwriting‘.
The co-operwriting process is completely driven by you in terms of how much involvement you would like. We can organise regular meetings, or we can play things by ear, a chapter at a time.
The most important thing about the co-operwriting process is that you are also learning by doing. My goal is to guide you through the drafting process, teaching via demonstration.
Co-operwriting takes the pressure off but also helps you develop your craft.
Redrafting done for you
Sometimes, when you’ve been working on your manuscript or other documents for a long time, you can no longer see what you’ve written. You no longer know if your message is coming through or your story will engage readers.
This is where I come in.
I can take your draft, assess it, then redraft it for you until you are happy. No changes are ever made without your final approval.
Ideally, you will start with a free consultation to discuss your needs. We’ll also develop a timeline and a schedule for reviewing and rewriting.
A re-write can be done at any stage and with a range of manuscripts, including fiction, non-fiction, memoir, newsletters, blog posts or business documentation.
I take your existing content and rework it until you are happy with its shine.
The re-write process allows you to stand back and see your writing with fresh eyes.
