FIND THE RIGHT WORDS ...
And your readers will find you. (You found me, didn't you?)
My challenge now is to keep you reading, make it easy for you to understand my message and inspire you to take action.
This, in a nutshell, is what my clients seek to achieve through their written communication: engagement, understanding and action. While these outcomes are highly desirable, they're not possible without a crucial first ingredient: readability. This is where a professional writer and editor can help.
I’m Melanie Scaife, an accredited editor with 20 years’ experience working for organisations to make their print and online publications readable. I do this by ensuring the wording, structure and design of your communications are so clear that your intended readers can easily find what they need, understand it, and use it.
You may have already invested time and resources into researching an issue, developing policy or building a business case. My job is to work with you and your organisation to communicate this effectively by making your meaning clear to the people that matter most: your readers.
