What geographic markets do you write for?
I currently write (English) for the American and European markets, however if you are situated outside of these areas, send me an email regardless. Let's discuss the possibilities of working together.
Because I work online, location is not a barrier when it comes to delivering content.
Why specialize in science, environment, and travel?
I've always had a feverish curiosity for scientific subjects, particularly the life sciences. For example, at university I found biogeography and genetics totally fascinating (aside from marine biology subjects, of course).
Environmental topics come naturally with my appreciation for whales and other marine life. I often use my science background to add weight to conservation messages.
Travel is a big interest of mine, which I continue to feed whenever possible. I've studied abroad in Australia, worked in different European countries, backpacked through Europe, and gone scuba diving on many reefs.
What is your fee structure?
Normally, I charge a flat fee based on commercially competitive rates for project work. I've found that clients appreciate knowing upfront what the cost will be. This eliminates surprises and makes activity and budget planning easier for everyone involved.
It also takes the focus off of billable hours for meetings, research, and content creation for the project team, and allows me to focus on writing creative, quality copy for you.
I include a cost breakdown in the quotation I send to you after we have discussed your project. Contact me for a free consultation today.
How long will it take to complete my project?
The length of time needed depends on the nature of the project. For example, writing a feature piece will likely take longer than a round of teaser texts. If the project involves interviewing, I include resource availability in my time estimate.
In all cases, I guarantee that you will receive well-researched, quality work, on deadline, according to specifications. If, for whatever reason you are not satisfied, I will revise the material until it suits your needs.
What about revisions?
I include an initial draft, and 2 editorial rounds (by request) in my project fee to ensure the content is exactly what you need. I only ask that the editorial rounds do not include a departure in scope, direction or format from the agreed content deliverable.
Changes such as these require an additional fee, and an update of the contract agreement.
