How I work with clients: 

Some hire me for one-off assignments – writing a bio, LinkedIn profile, customer success story; overhauling the content for an existing website or creating content for a new one;  or even just proofreading.

I work for others on a ongoing basis as a consultant, handling a range of day-to-day or week-to-week writing, communication or social media responsibilities. This works out well for clients who want regular help with their communications and marketing, but don’t have enough work for a full-time position.

I generally charge by the hour, and my rates vary according to the type of work involved (i.e., I charge more for copywriting and strategy and less for proofreading). Please get in touch for more information on projects and rates: carla.atkinson@atkinsonwords.com
