One benefit of working with an independent writing consultant is that services are customized to client needs. With that in mind, here are a few approaches Heather has used with success in the past:
Group training sessions offer organization-specific content for immediate impact. Heather meets with you to get a sense of the issues you’re seeing and where you’d like improvement. With that information, she designs hands-on workshops targeting those problems. Workshops might tackle a specific internal document or focus on effective workplace communication. Trickier topics like “our institutional voice” can also be addressed.
If outward-facing documents are your concern, Heather can support the growth of your team with trainings on content development, audience engagement, and project planning. Workshops might focus on content deliverables (“Writing a Killer Op-Ed”) or skill building (e.g., repurposing content, jargon reduction, storytelling for social impact).
One-on-one consultations accelerate staff improvement by providing direct feedback on writing projects. Heather works with team members to develop effective writing habits while improving current projects. She offers on-site appointments, e-consultations, and drop-in hours to meet staff where they are and improve writing outcomes in the long term.
Heather offers one-on-one coaching and professional editing services for documents of all types at any stage in the writing/editing process. She works with clients to create effective documents, including academic articles, dissertations, and manuscripts; promotion and annual review materials; resumes and letters of application; personal website content; grant applications; and more.
