You go your way.

I'll go your way too.

 

The Sweetest Little Song,

Leonard Cohen

A woman with bruneete hair sits at a desk holding a cup of coffee. She is wearing a red patterned shirt.

I currently work with clients on a few different writing challenges, including:

 

content & blog writingediting & proofreading | educational resource creation | press releases | newsletters | corporate & business writing | ghostwriting | eBook development & writing | content strategy & SEO support

 

The overwhelming feedback I get from those I write for and with is the strength of my 'voice' and ability to communicate an idea with the right mix of personality and professionalism.

I predominantly work with professionals and organisations within psychological and educational services, health, lifestyle and wellbeing. Some of my core clients are thought leaders in their respective fields, and I specialise in developing close, collaborative relationships to help curate a unique content package for them so they can focus on what they do best (being the brains of their respective businesses!).

As well as working with clients one-to-one, I write copy for significant global brands. Most recently, my words have been helping brands such as Levi’s®, Sussan, Culture Kings, Mocka, Clear Skincare, The Beauty Chef - and many more - reach and connect with their signature audiences.

 

I'm inherently passionate about connecting with others and sharing different perspectives in positive, creative, and curiosity-driven ways. Anne Lamott is quoted as saying, "writing is about telling the truth", and I believe that all writing should speak to a truth, in one way or another.

 

Think we could be a good match to work together?

I'd love to help you find the right mix of words, but I do have a large, existing client list. If the box below says 'available', then click away, my friend, and get in touch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

a word or two from my clients:

"As a writer for PositivePsychology.com, Elaine's work was excellent. Not only a talented writer, her research was comprehensive, providing insight to the reader no matter the topic.

Annelé Venter | Managing Editor, Positivepsychology.com

"Elaine is a versatile writer who can cover a wide gamut of topics covering career advice and mental health. Her writing is insightful and savvy. Every time I read a story draft from Elaine, it is evident that she has put time and intention into crafting her words. She is prompt on edits and always able to turn around stories on or before a deadline. Working with Elaine is truly a gift!"

Stephanie Taylor | Darling Magazine

"Elaine's content is so great. She really has a great tone of voice and raised every point needed to evoke trust in the reader around our brand. She delivered one of the best pieces of content we've received from a first-time freelancer we've worked with, and we can't wait to work with her more."

Destiny F. | Private Content Writing Client, Marketing & PR Services

"For the past year, Elaine has been writing the newsletter and blog articles for my company.  In that time, I have seen a huge increase in email open rates and engagement.  Her blog articles and always carefully crafted, insightful, and engaging. I appreciate how easy it is to work together - she took the time to learn about my courses and my clients and intended audience, as well as my voice.  Everything she writes is very authentic and sincere.  In addition, she is very creative and will often come up with a great topic for a blog article that is very relevant to what my audience is craving."
