Testimonials

Phaedra Pym has been writing the monthly Front Cover articles for CCBR for five years. These articles feature a well known business person and explains how and why they have been successful over a long period of time. They have to be concise and yet tell the full story and above all be very readable. Phaedra has the capacity to get to the heart of the story so that our readers can take away those little gems as to what has made these people the success they are. Importantly on all occasions the people she interviews tell us how happy they were with how she went around writing their story.

Picking up Threads, a novel by Dianne McKissock

NOVEL

Picking up Threads, Dianne McKissock

(Bookbound Publishing)

Developmental editing, copyediting, proofreading

I’ve had some lovely feedback about the book, especially from psychologists and social workers who think it should be included in university courses for anyone involved in the care of young people whose grief is largely misunderstood. And - your work and that of the proofreader and typesetter still receives praise - people most impressed that they can’t find any errors. Brilliant editing, great typesetting, excellent proofreading - what more can I say? Many many thanks. Dianne McKissock

Editorial Feature

My client, Morling College (a theological college), requested that I write a feature article for their quarterly Summa Supremo magazine based on the transcription of an audio interview. This is one example of several articles I have written for this client, which have since been published in two of their magazines.

Marketing Collateral

My client, Lee Woodward heads up Australia’s leading training organisation for the real estate industry, Real Estate Academy (REA). I have taken on many projects from copywriting for marketing collateral to editorial features in REA magazines. One of my most recent was a 9 page contribution to REA’s Activate brochure.

Editorial Feature

I have been writing the monthly cover story for our regional business magazine, Central Coast Business Review, since 2014. Each month I interview the subject to uncover and share the story behind their success in business. This is one example.
