Hi! My name’s Hilary, and I’m a Melbourne-based writer, copywriter and editor. You have landed on my website because you either consulted the internet oracle called Google or got a personal referral. You are also probably completely awesome, and most likely very good looking.

I provide a wide range of writing, copywriting and editing services to brands, businesses, agencies, studios and organisations. I pride myself on writing clear and persuasive copy that connects with people. I believe writing is a whole lot more than pretty words on a page – it’s a way to engage, introduce, educate and entertain. I set out to make people think and get under the hood of how they feel.

As a writer, my work has appeared in The Urban ListBuzzFeedBooks+Publishing, Broadsheet, FlypChart, CrikeyForbes Travel Guide, Time Out, JunkeeConcrete PlaygroundReadings, QuickflixHiP ParisMamamiaWomen’s Health & Fitness and SPOOK. 

As a copywriter, I have written copy for Fabio Ongarato DesignDigital360, Tundra InteractiveEast ElevenMalthouse Theatre, RMIT UniversitySANE Australia, DealCorpiBuildNewDeakin UniversityBlogger SidekickBrands ExclusiveMelbourne Convention Bureau, The Jacky Winter GroupFlypChartBeinArt GalleryTess Follett PhotographySo GoudaDDG DigitalSkinnyMint Teatox, Beauro AppThe Fox Darkroom & Gallery and more. I’ve written copy for property developers, theatre companies, the legal sector, national universities, financial advisors, tourism boards, small start-ups, online retailers, art galleries, app developers, mental health organisations and not-for-profits. I’ve even written daily horoscopes – and yep, I made them up completely.

As an editor, I have worked with published and unpublished authors on structural changes to their writing as well as professional manuscript assessments. I have corrected manuscripts in the secondary and higher education market, and edited several published books.

I would love to hear from you if you are looking for writing, copywriting or editing services. Whether you have a website that needs crisp new copy, an in-house marketing project that requires an experienced wordsmith, or a personal writing project that could use a bit of editorial polish, I can help you. Write to me describing your project in as much detail as possible, and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

Connect with me on LinkedIn, follow me on Twitter, or find out more about me here.
