Arvon Foundation

Dates: Spring 2014

The job

The brief was to edit and develop a teachers’ resource booklet for Arvon’s multilingual creative writing programme (M)Other Tongues. The idea behind the booklet is to share the valuable learning from the programme as widely as possible through a well-designed, well-presented resource which guides teachers and writers through the process of running a writing project for young people with a broad range of home languages.

Central Saint Martins

Dates: Autumn 2015


The brief was to edit the postgraduate prospectus for Central Saint Martins. It was vital for the arts college to ensure the copy was tight, accurate and compelling. The job required an in-depth understanding of priorities within HE, a tone of voice that struck a balance between academic and marketing, and the ability to edit without compromising the complexity of the post-graduate offer.
