Words are the currency of our lives. We read thousands every day, and life’s too short for wading through waffle. However valuable your message, if your copy is dull or lacking in sparkle, it’s unlikely to get read.

But sometimes words can sing.

Pick the right words, put them in the right order and they have power to make really good things happen. 

I write and edit for clients including CMS, Community Albums, Global Academy Jobs, Innovista, LICC, Medic Assist International, SAT-7 and Thrive. I also help individuals with stories to tell or wisdom to share to prepare their writing for publication. 

You’ll find examples of my work below. If you like what you see, please get in touch and let's continue the conversation.

It is so refreshing and reassuring to work with someone who is such a pro. I was so impressed with Jo’s ability to get onto our side of the table and understand our brand, style, tone of voice and audience. Her copy is a delight to read, and she has added enormous value to our charity.
— Robin Peake, Innovista

‘Jo’s copy is outstanding. She always delivers on time and to a very high standard.’

‘Jo can truly make words sing! We commissioned Jo to write our first Tumblr article. The response was unexpected with over 3,000 views and 400 likes from across the world on LinkedIn alone.’
— Nathan Jones, ACT Oxford
‘Jo has a talent for lifting the quality of any draft narrative so it really does sing – whatever the genre.’
— Martin Thomas, SAT-7
I cannot endorse Jo’s skills enough. She is excellent – and leads you towards excellence. Her comments, proofreading and final edits on my manuscript have encouraged and championed me all the way. She’s been the editorial midwife helping me birth a long-awaited child.
— Chrissie Wilkinson, Author & Public Speaker

I write for commission, and also for love. Here are my latest thoughts on friendship, fast fashion, refugees, how to tackle tyranny, and what I’ve been learning from my dog.
