A Writing Audit is a unique solution to a specific problem. Only Writing Project offer this service.

We will look at whatever aspects of your business or professional writing you need reviewed. Here are some examples:

Annual Reports • Blogs • Brochures • Company Statements • Case Records • Court Reports • Emails • Funding Proposals • House Style • Instruction Manuals • Newsletters • Pitches • Presentations • Press Releases • Product Information • Project Updates • Reports • Responses to Complaints • Reviews • Social Media • Website

We’ll prepare a detailed, confidential report which highlights what’s working well, what’s working less well, and why. Then we’ll give you practical tips on how to improve the weak areas, boosting the effectiveness of your communication with clients, colleagues and stakeholders.

Example 1:

The original text read: Our Enterprises Team initiate and development our Community-based Enterprises Programme which make positive social impact in our communities.  Our current Enterprise, the Local Leaders Awards honours leaders from the city’s Third Sector who are making an outstanding contribution to the city.

The accuracy of expression needs improving and I suggest the following revision:

Our team initiates an Enterprises Programme which is designed to have positive social impact upon our communities.  Our current venture, the Local Leaders Awards, honours those leaders who are judged to be making an outstanding contribution to the city’s Third Sector.

Small adjustments can make a huge difference to the readability of your text. You may know that something is not quite right, but can’t put your finger on what the problem is. Let Writing Project help.

All our practitioners are professional, published authors with vast experience of making writing accurate, dynamic and concise. Profiles of our Writing Project Associates can be found here: Our People

Example 2:

The original text read: The Waiting List Coordinator at X
will contact you. . . A letter confirming your proposed operation date will be sent out after this call has taken place. . . On the day you are due in you will be contacted … You will be asked to contact the ward direct before you leave home to confirm bed availability

I suggest giving the information in as few words as possible. You should use simple words when you can: simple vocabulary is not necessarily informal or inappropriate.

‘The Waiting List Coordinator at X will telephone you. A letter confirming your proposed operation date will be sent out after this call. . . On the day you are due in hospital we will call you. . . You will be asked to contact the ward direct before you leave home to check there is a bed for you.

Writing Audits are priced at a very reasonable £500. All Writing Audits are prepared by one Associate and checked by a second Associate, and you will usually receive your report within two weeks.
