Tessa Brechin Words


Writing: Copywriting to your specifications. Let me know the style of writing you require, intended audience, number of words and I'll do the rest. I will work closely with you to understand your needs and will revise drafts as required to ensure you get what you're looking for.

Editing: Written something but not sure if it's up to scratch? I can offer detailed or summarised editorial feedback on your work. Adjustments can be made directly in word documents or using track changes giving you overall control of alterations. If required, I will also work on hard copies.

Proofreading: Happy with your writing but want it checked through? I can offer formal proofreading using standard proofreading marks (for this I will require hard copies of documents), or informal proofreading - making corrections directly in your text or simple marks to highlight errors.

Additional services:

Book Reviews: I thoroughly enjoy reviewing new books! If you are an author or publisher and would like me to review a book please contact me. You can find examples of my reviews here.

Dyslexia support. I am happy to assist any dyslexic students or professionals with their writing as required.

Creative writing workshops: In the future I plan to offer writing workshops for young people through youth groups and schools. See projects for further details.
