.. seamless assistance with writing or editing quality submissions
“It’s important for my business to produce high quality applications for our clients, so that they receive the funding they’re looking for. As with many businesses, there can be busy deadline times where the team can’t quite keep up with the volume of work. At times like this I know that I can call on Alison to provide seamless assistance with writing or editing quality submissions. I am consistently happy with the solutions that Alison has offered and would recommend her as an efficient, thorough writer who sees the bigger picture.”
.. copy that’s enticing and creative
“Alison’s an absolute master at creating copy that’s enticing and creative. She also edits like a boss! I love working with her and highly recommend her services.“
.. makes me look good!
“I can recommend Alison for professional website copy writing and editing. She has completely redone my website content and I love it! She makes me look good! I gave her information in dot points and she put it together in a way that flows and is easy to read. Thank you!“
.. an email sequence I can’t wait to share with my audience
“I didn’t know how to turn my technical knowledge into a format my clients would enjoy and learn from. Alison transformed my existing content (webinar, slides and workbooks) into a neat little mini course and email sequence. The emails are short, sharp and to the point as well as warm, engaging and compelling. I’m excited to share them with my audience.
Alison is easy to work with, sticks to deadlines and welcomes feedback. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.“
.. professional workbooks I’m really proud of
“The workbooks for my online program weren’t up to scratch. I didn’t know how to organise my ideas and rough notes into something interesting and useful for my clients. Alison did a great job of structuring and editing the content, added learning objectives, great little summaries of each module’s ‘takeaways’ and clear instructions for the activities with helpful examples. Now I’ve got professional workbooks I’m really proud of.
Alison’s teaching skills really shone through here. She knows how to put herself in a learner’s shoes and create something that’s inviting and challenging for them at the same time.“
.. my new website copy is punchy
“I feel so much more confident about my website copy since Alison revised it for me. Now it’s punchy, describes my services, speaks directly to my ideal client and is easy to read. Alison reviewed the whole site, making suggestions for improving the design as well as revising the copy.
She’s easy to communicate with, explains things well and makes difficult things doable.”
.. absolutely committed to our deadline
“Alison helped us prepare a Request for Information (RFI) submission in English for an important business tender. She edited PowerPoint commentary, video scripts and technical documentation.
Alison was absolutely committed to our deadline, attentive to detail and accurate in conveying the required meaning in our technical content. She is particularly talented at synthesising ideas concisely while keeping the language fluent and easy to read. We were fully satisfied with her work.”
.. a valued member of our editorial team
“Alison has been providing services to Green Journey, an online publication and newsletter in the field of sustainable living, since March 2011. As Assistant Editor during 2011/2012, Alison helped us with editorial content and final editing; image sourcing; archiving; research and writing; and provided significant input with planning our online publication. Her background in teaching, written communication and English language skills have been an asset to building our quality website content.
Alison has written web copy for our School Gardens page and other web pages; edited numerous stories and newsletters; written several blog posts; and has researched topics of interest for our subscribers and readers. She also helped set up guidelines for our newsletter formatting to ensure the publication looks and feels consistent, and designed our guest blogger guidelines. Alison also conducts interviews and site visits and writes for our Inspiring Stories section.
She’s a valued member of our editorial team.”
.. timely responses & attention to detail
“In her role as Secretary of Slow Food Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Alison was a most competent communicator. Her work included taking Minutes; writing MailChimp newsletters; clearly documenting membership processes; and a range of correspondence with individual members. Alison’s timely responses and attention to detail were a real asset to the group.”
.. practical tips
“Alison sent me practical tips on how to streamline my site and organise my ideas. She helped me rewrite my pages. She has been incredible. If you need help with your copy or organising your ideas, you gotta contact her. She’s totally honest with you, which is exactly what I needed.”

Alison was refreshing to work with and it was such a relief to read my creative ramble turned into such wonderful sense and meaning.”
.. dedication, integrity & organisation
“I am a post-graduate student at the Sunshine Coast University and utilised the proofreading and editing services of Alison J Green in completing my final honours thesis in 2013. I made contact with Alison early in the writing stages and we developed an organised plan to ensure a timely outcome for the project. Even at these early stages I found Alison to be personable and caring in her approach and understanding of the pressures of academic writing.
When editing, Alison was professional and showed a great attention to detail. Her positive energy and warm dedication to a first class outcome were greatly appreciated. Lastly, the integrity and organisation she brought to my thesis were integral to the successful completion of the project.
I would happily recommend Alison for editing and proofreading in all areas of academic writing.”
.. calm, intelligent & good humoured
“Alison has worked with us as editor of four online courses. She brought to the task a keen eye for detail and the range of editorial skills one would expect of a top flight professional.
Beyond this, though, she brought to our project a set of higher level knowledge and skills related to education, training and entrepreneurship, which enabled her to offer us incisive and useful critique and commentary, and thus improve our offering.
We were particularly impressed with her understanding of the balance of the rational and operational elements of business (and business education) admixed with the affective, very human dimensions that militate for success. This extended to her relationship with us as clients. Alison’s practice is calm, intelligent, good humoured, reliable, punctual and purposeful.”
.. intuitive ability
“Alison is a rare find. Her intuitive ability to comprehend brief and supply incredible copy is by far the best I’ve experienced. Always meeting my deadlines and often in advance, Alison has been an asset to our business and our clients. We can’t recommend her services strongly enough.”
.. judgement, skill & knowledge
“Alison is very accurate in her work. She uses judgement, skill, knowledge and experience, marking amendments and advising the client of problems, all with the aim of optimising the result. I highly recommend her.”
.. bang on target in conveying my message
“Alison is a total pro… fantastic to work with and bang on target in conveying my message. If you need a brilliant copywriter, who will get straight in and get your job done fast, I highly recommend Alison’s services.”
.. across oceans, continents & time zones
“Alison’s ability to decipher, understand and adeptly improve what was honestly a bit of a shambles, is incredible! Her keen eye for detail (ie, picking up a missing punctuation mark in a title) left us shaking our heads in disbelief and gratitude.
The speed of her editing and return of copy made Usain Bolt look sluggish. And she did all this across oceans, continents and time zones that still allowed us to finalise our work before we left the field in Africa!
Alison has a personable, honest and humble demeanour that makes her an absolute pleasure to work with. In short, she is Wonder Woman complete with the invisible plane!”
.. skilful, clear & precise
“It was great working with such a talented person. My paper went from draft to final professional copy in Alison’s skilful hands yet it still belonged to me! I am very happy to recommend Alison. She is non-judgemental, clear and precise. I love her style!”
.. an experienced editor
“I highly recommend Alison for editing and copywriting. On the completion of my first eBook I needed an experienced editor to give it a more polished look. Alison did not disappoint. She was quick, efficient and not only did she give great attention to detail but she also gave me some fabulous writing tips. First class job – thank you!”
.. patience, humour & perceptive acumen
“Alison took on a task of monumental proportions. She assisted me to re-work a draft academic journal article into a narrative chapter with patience, humour and perceptive acumen. I recommend her editorial services and acute attention to purpose and detail without hesitation.”
.. you’re adding so much
“Thank you for editing our blog posts. We’ve been getting such excellent feedback from people. You’re adding so much to help it look, sound & feel more professional.”
..insights for ‘reaching’ my audience
“My goal was for Alison to proofread my first e-book to fix typos, spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc. She did that and much, much more. She first made sure she understood the purpose of the e-book. From there, she offered guidance to make the e-book more readable and visually appealing. I was pleasantly surprised by the insights Alison offered for ‘reaching’ my audience and her overall knowledge of website optimisation. I highly recommend Alison and look forward to working with her again.”
.. highly responsive to our needs
“We love using Alison for our projects. She’s highly responsive to our needs in writing, developing and proofreading copy that makes a difference. There’s a real skill to being able to communicate and she’s got it.“
.. I like the way she thinks
“Alison reviewed my book synopsis and edited an advertorial. She does a marvellous job.
She proofread and removed typos and errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation. She provided general editing to improve some sentence structures and development of the ideas, so that the content is clearer, expressed more persuasively and concisely, and easier to read. She also gave me some ideas for ways to give my book a broader appeal.
I like the way she thinks and works, and am looking forward to working with her again for my book manuscript for ‘A World of Twins’.”
.. understands how tough it is to write a thesis
“As a postgraduate research student doing a Master of Health Science at CQUniversity, I contacted Alison for proofreading and editing of my thesis on breast pattern distribution. I found Alison to be ‘spot on’ in finding even the smallest grammar mistakes that I couldn’t easily see. Although Alison had no specialist knowledge of my topic, I was very happy that my final thesis read so well because of her professional editing expertise. Alison is also very caring and understands how tough it is to write a thesis. I recommend her to anyone doing postgraduate study.”

Her comments, attention to detail and reliable service made me really feel valued and confident to work with her again on future projects. Thanks for the great work and great service!”
