I have over twenty years’ experience, in Australia and Japan, working with writers from many fields and walks of life to craft clear and concise texts that communicate elegantly for their audience and purpose. I am a member of the Institute of Professional Editors.

Research, academic and report writing

Do you have a text in need of structure or polish? I am an accomplished writer, editor and teacher, working with multilingual writers and supporting earth-friendly, ethical projects. I endeavour to work in a culturally safe way.

…Morag provided ongoing timely and robust feedback and critique as I regained my writing skills. The structured approach she applied was really helpful.

Hi Morag, it was great to work with you again… I found the advice you shared with us was really insightful.

It was very nice to talk to you, which has turned my experience around and actually made it become a positive thing that I can learn from. Thanks for hearing me out and showing me the way to go. I really appreciated your time and help.
