Services

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 wwriting examplesho 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.

EVENTS: people sitting at a table talking and writing

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.

 

Education:

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.
