A range of options
If you’re confident in your own abilities and have the time, you might be happy writing your own letters to professionals such as social workers, teachers, and doctors. If that’s you, then I have some free guidelines in my blog post: 7 tips for writing to professionals, completely free, here on my blog.
Alternatively, for a speedier, easier way to get those awkward letters written, you could try my template letters, available here. When you use those it’s just a question of filling in the blanks with the right names and a few details specific to your family, and you’re good to go.
If you want a second pair of eyes to look it over when you’re finished, you can always use my proofreading/editing service. (I’m a trained and experienced member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, having worked in publishing for nearly 20 years.)
My letter-writing service
But maybe you are completely snowed under and/or stressed out by a particular letter, or what you need to write doesn’t fit neatly into one of my templates. Get in touch and you can hire me to write the whole thing for you, with a free round of edits to make sure you’re completely happy with it.
The letter-writing service includes a one-to-one email, phone or Skype consultation followed by the crafting of a powerful, bespoke letter (up to 1,000 words) to suit your purposes, with one round of edits included in the price to ensure you’re completely happy with it. (Longer documents are available on request, please email me for more information.)
No personal details are required; I can leave space for you to complete those if you prefer. If you choose to provide them, they will remain confidential and secure and will not be used for any other purpose.
Before clicking the button below, please drop me a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org to check my availability, so I can be sure I can meet your needs within your timescale. I will always endeavour to get back to you within 24 hours.
The price shown assumes at least 7 days’ notice; for shorter timescales there is an additional charge of 10% per day. For example, 5 days’ notice rather than 7 costs £59.99 + 20% = £71.99. A same-day turnaround costs £101.99.
Why ask me to write your letter?
I’ve been writing and editing professionally for nearly 20 years; I have a BA degree in linguistics and English language and an MA in language studies. I’ve worked on books written by some household names and written direct mail letters for international charities. I have a particular knack for distilling your situation into a well-structured, well-reasoned letter that states your case clearly and powerfully, so that the recipient(s) are in no doubt about the action you would like them to take and the reasons why.
If you’d like to talk to me more before making a commitment, that’s absolutely fine. Drop me an email and we’ll take it from there. I’d love to help you.
