Words that work for you

Black Cat Creative offers a range of copywriting, editing and manuscript services to help you tell your story.

Tired of starting at a blank page?

We’ve all been there. You have a million jobs to do, deadlines that expired yesterday, and extra work to chase up. The blank page looms. You’ll get to it tomorrow. Perhaps you throw some words on the page as placeholders. You’ll get back to them later when you have more time.

Chances are you won’t, and every hastily written piece of copy—from your website landing page to your LinkedIn bio—has the potential to cost you business.

Why hire a professional?

Written content is one of the most meaningful ways of interacting with your audience, clients and customers.

 

The words you choose for your website, newsletter or blog post can make the difference between a new customer hitting the ‘contact’ button or moving on to one of your competitors.

Hiring a professional copywriter is more than paying someone to whip up your ‘about’ page or blog post. Writing crisp, meaningful copy takes time, focus and intention. Great copy makes your business stand out.

Black Cat Creative will get to the heart of your message and create clear, accessible copy. Words shouldn’t get in the way of your business, they should enrich it.

How can I help?

Black Cat Creative offers a range of copywriting and editing services. I can edit your existing content or create completely new, researched and optimised copy that will bring your story to your customers. If it’s made of words, I can help.

Website

Your website is your number one advertisement. It shows the world who you are and what you do. In other words, it tells your story. Every page has a job to do, and every word needs to lift its weight.

I can work with your web designer to create the perfect copy for your website that will entice your customers and audience.

  • 3-page or 5-page packages

  • Editing and reviewing your existing content for flow, clarity and impact

  • See below for indicative pricing

 

 

Social Media

Social media is an essential part of advertising and communication for your business. I can help you with:

  • Impactful profiles

  • Choosing the right platform

  • Engaging posts

     

Editing

Need a fresh set of eyes on your work? Spotting your own mistakes can be difficult. I can help with:

  • Spelling, grammar, typos
  • Flow
  • Consistency
  • Voice/Language choice
  • Structure

Manuscript Appraisals

Creative writing is my first love. As a published author with a PhD in English (creative writing) I can help you take your manuscript to the next level.

It’s hard to see the forest for the trees when you have invested so much time and personal care into a project. That’s where an unbiased, fresh set of eyes can help.

I will read and provide written feedback on:

  • Structure

  • Voice

  • Character/Theme development

  • Consistency

  • Plot

*While I will highlight any obvious typos, grammar or spelling issues, I do not do copy edits of large manuscripts as this is a specialist field and deserves a category of its own.
