The most frequent job I get is to re-draft an article, probably a page or two in length. Clients will have typed out what they want to say with some ideas for a title and some headings where appropriate. Because they know I’ll take care of any errors they can concentrate on the message they wish to get across and ensuring their facts are right.
I will usually return text ready for publication the next day. Booklets and posters are also popular requests. Although a poster may only have a few words, it is just as important to get them right and finding an image that won’t go fuzzy when covering a page is often something I can do much more quickly, and legally, than a client. If you’ve ever tried getting the page numbers right in a booklet you’ll know why I can be useful there too!
