(copy and text)
From dense technical reports that inform to clever copy that sells, I write words that stand out from the crowd. And let's face it, in this digital age when information is flooding and attention spans are waning, that's exactly what you want.
I can work from scratch or from your drafts and documents to write fresh and effective copy for any purpose. The publication and medium don't matter; the quality of the copy and the impact of your message do.
Every business needs strategically developed, highly shareable stories for social media because content is king and we are its courtiers.
There's no point putting up content that doesn't cut it. There is so much to click, share, like and buy, so it's only the valuable, shareable, engaging and entertaining content that catches the eye and opens the wallet.
Content is crucial for building your brand, your message, your mission, but it's got to be on its game. And getting it right is an art.
Editing and proofreading
Eagle-eyed and exquisitely detailed, my editing service is a perfectionist’s pass before publishing.
I have 21 years of experience transforming draft text into a professional and polished publication. I'm also a member
of the Institute of
Professional Editors (IPED).
I use the Australian style manual and your organisation’s in-house style preferences to take your document as close as possible to perfect, so that it meets the brief and I do too.
Even the most accomplished and experienced writers can benefit from a second set of editorial eyes.
I’m a big believer that when there is something really important to do, it’s worth doing well. And the people equipped to do things the best are those whose livelihood depends on using specific skills day in day out. Written communication is one such skill. No business can achieve its full potential without doing this well.
My business, Propertyology, has worked with Natalie Bartley since 2012. Working with Natalie has enabled me to direct my time to where it’s most needed. The material which Natalie has produced has our core messages clearly articulated and a language style most suited to the target audience. If your business has some words worth saying, then I recommend 'Say The Word'.

I highly recommend Natalie Bartley to you. Having met her 25 years ago at university, we've since worked many times together as freelance writers and editors. I go to Natalie for help to complete large projects, for advice on difficult projects, and for her interest in language and communication trends. She is unquestioningly professional with both clients and her colleagues, and she has a keen
eye for new ways of thinking about content.
But, most importantly, Natalie makes text talk. She can restructure and rephrase material (or write it from scratch) to achieve objectives, not just make it grammatically correct.
Beyond her word craft, Natalie is skilled at managirrg a writing project's schedule, budget and
suppliers. She is also a cracking person to have as part of your team, on top of being honest and

Writing is like making magic — and this is something that Natalie is not only very good at, it’s also something she so obviously loves to do.
As a video production company specialising in corporate video communication and commercials since the early 80s, Natalie is one of only three writers over the last thirty years that has been able to write to my very picky high standards.
She has the skills, flexibility and the large amount of intuition needed to write beautifully for our diverse range of corporate, training, induction and web videos as well as commercials for cinema and television.
Good writers are hard to find so snap her up!
