2Write for writing and editing

welcome to 2write

2Write back in business

2Write is up and running again after our two-year VSA volunteer posting in Timor Leste. While we were away, Pat worked as communications manager for development agency World Vision, mentoring local staff. Pip taught creative writing to a group of Timorese researchers and published a 140-page creative writing guide in Tetun two days before we left. For more on that and our other Timor adventures, check out our blog Dili Dally.

Now that were home, we’re available for writing, editing, oral history projects, newsletter and website design.

We’re also keen to run workshops to pass on our skills. We’ll teach individuals or groups creative writing, plain writing and report writing. We can also show your organisation how to set up a dynamic newsletter, blog or  website, and help you to maintain it.

Please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
