Can I help you? I write and talk about food, farming and social change, and I’m available for hire. Here are some of the things I can offer. For more detail see the Projects page and my Linked In profile.
Writing, editing and communications:
I have a science degree and I’ve been an abstractor, a freelance copy-editor and an information officer for many years, specializing in agriculture for both technical audiences and the public. Apart from editing and proof-reading, I’m good at turning rambling essays into engaging text that tells the reader what they really want to know. I also enjoy talking to people who have a message to convey and helping them find the words that will get it across to their audience.
Besides writing engaging articles for the press, I can turn my hand to those regular editing jobs that just need to get done, and I can work with a translator on bilingual projects. Contact me if you need help with:
- content for websites, including blog posts and articles
- text for leaflets
- press releases and newsletters
- technical editing.
I am an experienced organizer of events. I’ve planned conferences, chaired meetings, devised workshops, hosted community meals, led retreats and set up groups. I love to hold a safe and creative space where everyone’s voice is heard and the notes get written up.
I’m a qualified teacher and I’ve worked as an education officer and a private tutor. I lead farm visits, train countryside staff in hosting educational visits, design and lead classroom workshops, and produce educational materials.
HOW I WORK
Working remotely from Aberystwyth, I am happy to take on jobs of anything from a few hours to a bigger project. I can also take on a regular commitment, and I can travel to your office if that makes sense. I charge £25-50 an hour, depending on the work, and the customer, or £150-300/day. Contact me for a free half-hour consultation now, on jane [at] foodsociety.wales or call 07929 857173.
