an essay for a course
a flyer or leaflet
menus for your restaurant
a piece of creative writing, e.g. a novel or a story
"It's the 'About Me' page. I need help with just trying to
condense down all my waffle
into a nice clear statement that explains a bit about what I do and what I’m trying to achieve. I could also do with some guidance with the descriptions of my artwork,
but it might be easier to talk you through that as I’m not sure what to write.
I’ve had a go with some of them but I’m totally lost.
Should I be writing a review, an explanation, or a description
about how I made the artwork?
I have no idea what to say."

Hello, I'm Anita
Writer, text alchemist, typo killer and text therapist.
Raw Text is my copy-editing and proofreading service.
People send me their words and I help them write
documents and content that they and their readers love.
Anita has been always a generous support to this centre. Keeping her busy schedule at bay, she has proofread and edited the annual reports and website content of this centre and has always shared her expertise with compassion and humility.

Gross National Happiness Centre, Thimpu, Bhutan
Before Raw Text I was a
high school English teacher for 15 years,
working with people of all levels of self belief.
I have a Masters degree in Art History
and have worked with words all my life.
I love helping people overcome obstacles to writing
– emotional and practical –
so that they can get the most out of their words.
Anita is not just a top-notch writer, but a mentor for fellow writers too.
As a relative newbie to the world of copywriting, I have benefitted from Anita's guidance – both with the business and marketing side, and the art of writing good copy.
She really cares about words, and wants everyone else to join her!
Her CV and qualifications speak for themselves, but Anita's value goes beyond that. She's a warm soul who seeks, first and foremost, to understand who she is writing for and what they want to say. If you want an advocate (who also happens to convey your message eloquently and with style)
I strongly recommend you look no further.

But enough about me.
Raw Text is about you, your words,
and the people who will read them.
It is a celebration of the mystery and magic of creativity.
