Polished and creative copywriting, content writing and editing


 Are you a:

Small business owner struggling to find the right words for your website?

Content manager who needs to outsource written content?

Writer who needs a second pair of eyes to edit and proofread your copy?

I’m a reliable, perfectionist freelance writer and editor with 20 years’ experience as a journalist, medical writer, content writer and sub-editor.


I can help you with:


Content writing

Written content that’s accurate, polished and delivered on time. SEO-pleasing copywriting, website content, blogs, bios, profiles, newsletters and grant applications.


Medical writing

Medical articles and features based on thorough research and interviews with experts and patients. Copy that’s engaging, reader-friendly and always accurate.


Media releases

Snappy, informative media releases that tell your organisation’s story using my extensive experience in the print journalism industry. 

News and feature writing

News articles and features written with flair and accuracy, using my experience as a news reporter and feature writer.  

Copy editing

Making sure your copy flows well, follows a consistent style, says everything it needs to say, and has no embarrassing errors.


Giving your written text an eagle-eyed second and third (and fourth) look to check for any typos.


It was an absolute pleasure working with Helen when I was the Science Writer at The Australian and the Editor of the paper’s Weekend Health Section.

Building on her solid grounding in medical research and firm understanding of Australia’s health system, she contributed great ideas and excellent copy, helping to keep the section relevant and readable to the professional audience it served.

Best of all, Helen’s copy was always on time and polished. I recommend her highly.

Helen is a regular and trusted writer for SEEK’s employer content destination. She is a quality writer who can tackle a variety of topics and do the necessary research to create valuable content. Not only does Helen take direction and feedback well, she always offers suggestions and ideas that helps us to create meaningful editorial content.

Her copy is well constructed and requires very little editing and it is clear she always creates content with the audience in mind – which is hugely important to us. We would highly recommend for long-form feature editorial and copywriting.

About me

With 20 years’ experience as a writer and editor, I produce accurate, clean copy, delivered on time and to brief.

I specialise in health and medical writing that’s reader-friendly and always accurate, and employment writing on B2B recruitment advice and tips.

Thanks to 10 years working as a reporter and sub-editor in The Australian‘s high-pressure newsroom (read more about that here), I live in mortal fear of missing a deadline or a typo.

My journalism experience has given me the skills to get to the heart of a story and tell it with flair and accuracy.

I work with large corporations, small to medium businesses, non-profits and sole traders.
