Word Wise Writing and Editing

Director: Margaret Langdon

Welcome to Word Wise, which is my freelance writing and editing business.

I have had 11 years’ experience in custom publishing and technical communication services, as well as freelance writing, and I have an extensive portfolio of published work on a wide variety of topics. I write and edit a range of magazine and website articles, journals, reports and other documents.

My background:

I started off as a secondary school teacher, then moved into sales and marketing roles in the stationery industry. I started Word Wise in 2008, when I decided to quit my sales and marketing job and focus on my ‘true loves’ of writing and editing. I started writing my first novel, went ‘back to school’ to do a Diploma of Writing and Editing, got a job with a corporate publisher – and I’ve never looked back!

My experience from teaching and business marketing combines beautifully with my communication and writing skills to make me a versatile and experienced writer and editor.

As a writer, I have a portfolio of published articles on a diverse range of topics for many different platforms. These include industry and not-for-profit communications, newspapers, parenting magazines and websites, specialist magazines and small business websites.

As an editor and proofreader, I have worked on reports, technical guides, academic journals, booklets and other documents for organisations including: Victorian State Government departments such as DELWP and the Game Management Authority; Forest and Wood Products Australia; the Public Health Association of Australia; the Dairy Industry Association of Australia; and Eucalypt Australia.

Tertiary qualifications:

  • Diploma of Professional Writing and Editing
  • Graduate Diploma of Business (Market Modelling)
  • Bachelor of Education (English and Media Studies)

I have an Australian Business Number (50 434 550 167) and am fully insured. I am also a member of Writers Victoria.

I would be delighted to discuss your writing and editing ideas and requirements with you – no matter how big or small. Please go to the Contact Us page and fill out the form, or call me on the number below. I will respond to your enquiry as soon as I can.
