You go your way.

I'll go your way too.


The Sweetest Little Song,

Leonard Cohen










I've been a freelance writer and editor for close to ten years, but a lover of words for many more. I currently work with clients on a few different writing challenges including:


content & blog writing | copywriting | editing | first reading

 press releases | newsletters | corporate & business writing | ghostwriting


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'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 telling the truth' and I believe that all writing should speak to a truth, in one way or another.

Whether you need engaging copy to develop your brand personality, thoughtful and well-researched blogs, or an 'About' page that connects with your audience – I can help.


Think we could be a good match to work together?

Simply drop me an email or DM via my contact below with what you're looking for.

I'd love to help you find the right mix of words ↓

Thanks for stopping by and hanging out 

a word or two from a few of my recent clients:

'We have been working with Elaine to develop engaging, fun, and informative content for our blog for a few months now. In short, she's a bit of a superstar! She is a dream to work with, needing only an initial conversation to understand our audience, goals, and conversational tone before taking the reigns with confidence and skill. She obviously loves what she does and takes her work seriously. I'd recommend her to anyone so long as she doesn't become too busy and we can't continue to access her fresh and fun word skills!'

Andrew Scrivens | Aromas Coffee Roastery

'Elaine's commitment to delivering outstanding, high-quality content is one of the core reasons we've continued to work with her over the past three years. A powerhouse of knowledge with incredible experience to boot, Elaine is reliable and understands the pulse of the topic she's writing on. She's also a thorough professional, who often goes the extra mile to turn around tight deadlines without compromising on quality. It's my pleasure to recommend her.'

Sid Balachandran | Springpod STEM Careers

'Just a quick message to say I really like your writing style. You present clear, engaging, and insightful ideas that provide lots of value - a skill that very few have!'

Jon Hawkins | The Apeiron Blog



'Elaine is among the best. We initially engaged her for one short project, but she has quickly become a key team member! She strives to deliver not only professional content but a positive and fulfilling working relationship. It is a real pleasure to work with her.'

Sudesh Panicker | Discovery Learning

'Great writer! Elaine was quick, gave great insightful tips, and demonstrated top-notch communication! She is a dream to work with and we would definitely hire her again in the future when the need arises.'

Kim Childs | LIKE WHERE City Guides

'I'm impressed at your tweets from the Jane Caro 'Accidental Feminists' session - that's not an easy feat. Well done on getting those messages out so clearly.'
