What others are saying about my services
We commissioned a booklet to document the 100-year history of the iconic Myers Kindergarten. Carolynn wrote the introduction and the conclusion, and proof-read and edited the 4000-word body copy. She’s extremely thorough and efficient and we have no hesitation in recommending her for writing projects.
Auckland Kindergarten Association
It has been a delight to use Carolynn's wonderful skills as editor of my e-book. Her approach and support gave me great confidence in what turned out to be a massive project. Carolynn put in huge hours to support and educate me and her attitude was amazing. Such a delight to work with her and I highly recommend her skills and work ethic.
Being able to convey your message in clear, plain English is absolutely critical, but even more so when reaching out and engaging with the multi-lingual communities of New Zealand. I can confidently attest that Carolynn’s skills and client-focus mean that she certainly delivers excellent results - on time - across a range of writing tasks whether proof reading, business writing, document review, or editing – and for all kinds of reader groups.

Our potential customers need technical concepts spelled out in simple and easy to understand ways. Carolynn did a great job with our web content, and told a story our customers want to read. She also added a case study that brings our relationships with our customers to life. More than happy to recommend her services to others. Thanks Carolynn!

She edited my text, and made it look good. Took out all the spellung mistakes and incorrect, grammar.
My background and experience
I’ve had a varied career that’s included the public and voluntary sectors as well as business, doing project management, training & development and communications work. I’ve always enjoyed writing and editing, and am the first to step up when reports, evaluations, articles and proposals need doing. I love the fact I’ve been involved with people of all ages and nationalities, with different interests and different messages to get across. And I enjoy the challenge of pitching my work at just the right level for the audience.
I’ve produced a lot of information material, training resources and media documentation in my time. I also write and edit web-based content and worked on the production of several communications-focused websites. I specialise in writing, formatting and editing in plain/global-English, particularly text aimed at audiences who do not have English as their first language. Most recently I added case studies to my regular workload – talking to companies and their satisfied clients about their business relationship, then writing up the success story.
