2Write for writing and editing

writing, editing and design

We’ve been writing, editing and designing magazines, newsletters, pamphlets and reports for 35 years, primarily for government agencies, unions and not-for-profit organisations. Between us, we’re skilled at all aspects of print and web publication.

Publications are the public face of your organisation. They can raise your profile, spread your message and boost your members’ morale. 2Write will:

  • help you work out what you want to say and how to say it
  • write the copy with your input
  • edit your efforts
  • turn facts and figures into easy-to-understand tables and graphics
  • bring your messages to life with simple, effective design
  • liaise with printers to ensure the finished product lives up to your expectations
  • advise on promoting your publication among your members, wider public and the media.
