For the past several months Phaedra has assisted our Director of Marketing with our company’s written communication needs, including articles, blogs, newsletters and EDM’s. Her work is very professional and has been very well received by our clients. For instance, her article on a recent case study received over 14,000 views on social media and produced an 80% click through rate when used as the lead story in one of our recent newsletters. Not only does Phaedra follow through on instructions in a reliable, professional manner, but she also takes the initiative to do her own research and come up with story ideas without any prompting from us. I highly recommend Phaedra for any business wanting to release more engaging written content to their target audiences.

I am writing to you to say thank you!! Working with you has been nothing short of awesome. I have been wanting to write a book for more than 10years and to be honest without meeting and working with you it wouldn’t have happened. I’ve never been comfortable with ghost writing and wanted to write my own words so the book had my vibe and your direction was absolutely fantastic. Not only did I write the book but you motivated me to get the job done amongst my busy schedule plus you edited the book in such a way that it kept my flavour and turned out way better than I could have done myself. Working closely with you for the past 12 months I can see why you are regarded as the best because you are just that, the best at what you do. You gave me great ideas along the way and taught me how to structure a book so it made the entire job enjoyable and exciting. Without your commitment, guidance and attention, my first book wouldn’t have been anywhere near as good and in only a few short weeks I’m selling hundreds of copies and people are loving it. So thank you again and I am already planning my next book for you to help me release.

Phaedra’s help in creating a voiceover script for Central Coast Grammar School’s virtual tour was invaluable. She was able to look at our draft and key messages from an outside perspective, then create a polished and appealing script that hit the mark with very little back and forth..

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.

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.

Phaedra has an incredible talent for bringing real words together that match the needs of the audience and the project. We have produced four great books together, which are all selling well, with more to come.

Massive thank you to you, Phaedra. Your assistance with the submissions (business and Law Society awards) was priceless. The best writer on the coast by miles, in our opinion.

You have nailed the brief (new company website). Simple, warm and informative without being too technical.

Working with Phaedra was a fantastic experience. To be able to hand over a copywriting brief, and have someone understand precisely the tone and audience for the article is a real gift. Phaedra has helped us breathe new voice and flavour into many clients’ campaigns.
Jason van Genderen, Chief Storypreneur, Treehouse
One of the finest writers I have been privileged to have known and be part of my team. As we all know, we are only as good as the team around us and most certainly without hesitation I can say Phaedra is extremely passionate about what she does, very forensic with her work, her attention to detail and timely follow through makes it so much easier for me to do my work. Simply an ‘A Class’ player. Thanks Phaedra for being part of my life.

I was introduced to Phaedra by a mutual client and have since recommended her services to several of my clients whilst redesigning their websites. All too often I find that whilst my clients are fantastic at what they do, they often have difficulty conveying what their business offers in copy. Phaedra has a real talent for understanding a client’s business and finding the best way to express their services and skills in a clear and concise way that their customers can understand. Phaedra came highly recommended to me and, after working with her for several years, I’d certainly highly recommend her to anyone in need of copywriting services.

E-Bisglobal has been working with A Way With Words for the past three years. It has been a great relationship with Phaedra delivering a very professional service, not only in the content but in the timeliness and execution of the project. She is able to grasp complicated technical documents and is never afraid to ask questions if she is unsure of the required response.
Paul Freeman, E-Bisglobal
Phaedra has done a fantastic job on editing my book and I am so proud of the end result. She brought such a flow and grace to the content while maintaining the original tonality and character of the book. Throughout the process Phaedra was very professional and a pleasure to work with. I can highly recommend her.
Jacqueline Hofste, Enheduana Super-conscious Living
Thank you all for the fantastic work in compiling my book into a great book on the history of the Geelong Botanic Gardens. Phaedra your input has been fantastic and much appreciated. An, your index is, in Phaedra’s words, “incredible” making the book a very useful historical chronology and Eric the compilation and its design of the book makes it easy to read and follow. Thank you all very much.
