Make the right impression

About me

Lost for words? Say hello to your new best friend.

I’m Sarah, a bilingual proofreader and copywriter who lives in not-so-sunny south Wales.

I specialise in food writing (check out my blog), but my words will win you over, whatever they are.

Over the years, I’ve done a lot of writing and editing for different platforms and I also offer communications consultancy.

I pride myself on offering excellent customer service and a personal touch – and I’m happy to work in English, Welsh or both languages.

I’ve worked with some great people

How I can help


Do you need your written work given the once over? Whether it’s print or online, I can edit your copy to ensure that it gives the right impression.

I have experience of editing lots of different types of work including academic essays, dissertations and theses, websites and blog posts.


Do you need words that wow? I’m your woman. If you’re after website copy, a press release that packs a punch or the right words for that killer advertising campaign, I can help. I’ve provided print and web copy for businesses (big and small), charities, publishing companies and more. Words with impact – as if you’d written them yourself.

Communications, public relations, marketing – and everything in between

We all have a story we want to tell and I can help. I have over eight years’ experience in communications and marketing so whether it’s planning a launch event, creating a communications plan, taking the scary out of social media or getting you into the news, I’ve got your back. Whatever it is, I’ll create content that’s just right for you and your audience.

Food for thought…

Do you live to eat? Me too. I’m a hungry food writer and blogger with a kitchen full of recipes that’ll soon be published in my debut cookbook. If you want words for your website, menu, social media or anything else, I’ll make them as delicious as your dishes.

The customer’s always right! Here’s what people say about my work…

We love working with Sarah and can always rely on her to provide engaging and knowledgeable copy that is appealing to a range of readers. Although she generally writes about vegan and vegetarian eating, Sarah can turn her hand to anything we ask her to.

Sarah was a pleasure to work with and was always there to answer my questions. She is friendly, reliable and professional.

Sarah’s an old hand when it comes to the world of communications and PR; her finger’s on the pulse and she has a unique and creative way of thinking. She’s not afraid to try new ideas and shake things up and is easy (and lovely) to work with.

Bethan Lloyd, Communications Manager, RSPB Cymru

Sarah was a real help when it came to making sure that my PhD thesis was just right. She's flexible and friendly and offers great value for money. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a proofreader.

Charlotte Pointon, alumna of Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University

Sarah is a consummate professional. A real pleasure to work with. Flexible, punctual and completely reliable.

Rebecca Rideal, academic, editor of The History Vault and author of 1666: Plague, War and Hellfire

Sarah is full of innovative ideas which she can deliver to a tight timescale and in challenging circumstances; for example, when coordinating with lots of different organisations. From web copy to adverts, her written work is top class, and she also has great skills in bringing people together, seeing the big picture and storytelling.
