Vanessa has an impressive ability to transform long and complex lists of facts into concise, informative and engaging copy that website users will want to read. Her adaptable, decisive and speedy approach makes her a joy to work with.

I had been struggling with writing concise copy for my website that would convey the message I wanted in as few words as possible. I started working with Vanessa on Skype, and found she had the key to unlocking the problem. Vanessa has excellent listening skills, and was able to pinpoint the critical elements through asking probing, challenging questions. Skype was an ideal vehicle, as she wrote while sharing her screen, so that it became a true collaboration. I cannot tell you how helpful and effective Vanessa was in this... Well I could, but she would say I had used too many words, and would re-write it much better.

There is nothing more assertive than getting one's point across in a handful of relevant words and this is where Vanessa always delivers for me. She revamps my long and tedious monologues into precise, sharp paragraphs. She gets into my head and makes it sound like me.

Vanessa is a strong editor and writes clearly. She is quick to understand the audience and the purpose of the job in hand, and delivers compelling and convincing copy. It has been a pleasure to work with her on numerous occasions. Jeremy Cooper

Vanessa is an excellent editor who can shape a well structured report from even the most disorganised of drafts. 
Dr Patricia Ray
Consultant in International Development

I did enjoy  every moment working with Vanessa Jones. She is very professional and devoted her time and effort to our Disaster Response manual as if we were the only client within the radar. Pressed of time because of my tight deadlines, she really worked tirelessly to help me meet the target. A mere thank you doesn’t cost me but falls short of my heartfelt gratitude.
Victor Macklenin
Head of Disaster Operations, Plan International

I have commissioned Vanessa Jones on a number of different consignments over the last five years, including copywriting, editing and complex report/proposal writing in the area of international development. Her work has always been of excellent quality, delivered on time and to the brief. Vanessa is always a pleasure to work with, very personable and flexible. She ensures she fully understands what is needed and I would highly recommend her services.
