Word Wise Writing and Editing

Director: Margaret Langdon

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

I have had ten 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, further developed by years of work in custom publishing, 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.
