Copywriting & Editing
With over three years of copywriting experience, I can produce copy that stands out and grabs the reader’s attention – whether you’re selling a product or boosting engagement. I have edited across multiple publications, online and in print. Whether you have a business document, fiction work or blog post, I can deliver high quality editing services. Past projects have included bios, blog posts, university topic guides, feature articles, competition terms and conditions, and more.
My favourite part of the writing process is submitting my novels and applying for grants, mentorships and residencies! I have a 100% success rate when it comes to pitching my novels at conferences and festivals. I also have a high success rate for grant applications – having been awarded several each year since I started writing.
I can help when it comes to writing a stellar pitch that will have publishers and agents begging to read your manuscript. This service focuses on how to best sell yourself and your project, helping you to produce a winning pitch or application. It includes structural feedback and line editing.
I offer feedback on:
- pitches for writing conferences/festivals
- cover letters
- grant applications
“Sarah was very helpful in refining my pitch for the RWA conference this year which resulted in four requests for full manuscript submissions. She was very timely in getting back to me and her revisions were clear and concise. I’d have not hesitation in recommending her service if anyone wants to refine their pitch.” – Monika, Aug 2016
I have worked in design for over three years. I offer:

- ebook covers
