Hi, I'm Beth.

I'm a writer and editor with a particular interest in translating complex health and medical information into plain English.

After several years in health policy development and health services management in the UK, I shifted both country and mindset to work for health and disability not-for-profit groups in Australia. These included large peak bodies and small grassroots organisations.

At Healthy Words, I write copy for magazines, grant proposals, submissions to government or professional inquiries, media releases, opinion pieces, web content, and consumer health information on behalf of a growing body of clients. You can read what they say about me here

My writing skills can help you capitalise on opportunities to reach your audience without adding to your own workload.


If you'd like to work with me, please call me on 0408 613 539 or email beth@healthywords.com.au.
