The following is a selection of completed copywriting and editing projects. Other projects not listed include articles, brochures, emails (internal and marketing), internal documents, interviews, newsletters, SEO, slogans and taglines, web copy and websites.

I created five new documents, totalling 33,000 words, for a medical group. The work also involved updating existing information, and verifying and compiling data. Since this project required handling confidential information, including patient feedback, the name of the group cannot be listed here. If you would like more details, please let me know and I can put you in touch with one of the project co-ordinators. – NEW!

International Organisation for Migration (IOM): I interviewed twelve people who had temporarily returned to their homelands with the help of IOM. Their purpose was to carry out various developmental projects, from beekeeping to providing medical care. The interviews were then crafted into short first-person articles.
