When we saw this sign in India we laughed – but there was no way we were going to go swimming in the river, even though it was pretty hot there (would you?).
Point most decidedly taken!
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?
We are freelance writers. Between us, we had more than 55 years’ experience of working for the RSPB and wildlife trusts. We can undertake freelance copywriting for interpretation panels, signs, leaflets, web copy and other materials. Some examples of our copywriting projects are shown below.
We work together on our writing projects. Our skills and ideas dovetail nicely and so do our writing styles, so customers get the best of us both! Everything one of us works on goes under the critical eye of the other before it leaves us. It’s a matter of pride that anything we send out to our customers will be to their brief, on time and in good shape.
If you think we might be able to undertake something for you, please do email us to discuss, using the contact page above.
