Hello, I’m Alison. I am a professional writer, editor and proofreader. To find out more about the work I do, visit the Use me page. To find out more about me, read on…


I’m a baby of the seventies and a child of the eighties. At school I was good at dancing and passing exams. To get my BA(Hons) American Studies from the University of Sheffield I lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico for a year.

In my working life I’ve been a shop assistant, a receptionist, an administrator, a research assistant and an events marketing officer. I worked in a plastics factory once, too. I started my business in November 2005, crafting content for better communication. I’m not just good with words – I’m also skilled at organising things, managing my time and finding stuff out.

I can’t run, throw or catch, but I do like making origami cranes, speaking Spanish, watching films and doing cryptic crosswords. I am one of three founders of Sheffield’s pop-up cinema Magic Lantern Film Club. And every summer I get slightly obsessed with the Tour de France.
