What we do

Clear, consistent and concise written communication is our specialty. Our role is to help you shine by writing, editing or proofreading your document to ensure your message is clear and easily understood.

Red Hen Writing works closely with our clients to help prepare business documents, brochures, web site text, university coursework materials, academic texts, media releases, feature articles and visitor guides, among others. We make technical writing accessible to a wide audience. Although we specialise in science and environment, we have a range of experience in other subjects.

We believe in upholding the highest writing and editing standards. That’s why we conduct our business in accordance with the Australian Standards for Editing Practice (2nd edition). Unless otherwise specified, we write and edit according to the Style manual for authors, editors and printers 6th edition, and our spelling reference is the Macquarie Dictionary. However, if you have an in-house style guide and preferred spelling reference, we will follow those.

Our lengthy experience in communications means that for large or complex projects we can call on a network of other professionals, such as graphic designers, printers, or other writers and editors to help.
