CreatEd’s writing benefits from a critical editorial eye, informed by 13 years’ of teaching experience, and a writer’s creative flair – so you get the best of both worlds.

If you need an editor-cum-writer to carry out remedial work on content when an author is no longer involved, I can make innovative improvements to content, ironing out issues and ensuring the content fulfils its aims.

The creativity doesn’t stop there – it extends to writing English language teaching exams, general English courses and online content from scratch.

IELTS Materials

As a current teacher, qualified IELTS speaking examiner and teacher trainer of IELTS courses, I am often asked to create IELTS materials. My writing projects include authoring IELTS Introduction: Study Skills Pack for Macmillan. Aimed at a lower level IELTS learner, the book illustrates my ability to grade academic texts to the appropriate level and to teach skills, rather than test them.

Exam Materials

I’ve written English for academic purposes exams for the Northern Consortium of Universities and items for Oxford University Press and Collins.

Workbooks to accompany Student's Books

As editor of the Big Picture Advanced Student’s book, I was well-placed to write the accompanying workbook. It allowed me to demonstrate the ability to innovate within quite a prescriptive brief and to adapt authentic feeling, up-to-date texts.

Digital Content

I’ve refreshed outdated digital content within a CMS. I’ve also written an English for academic purposes online workbook, tailoring the exercise types to fit the template.

 I’m happy to work as part of an author team or alone.  Please do get in touch if you’d like me to improve existing material or to write something from scratch.  If you have a new course in mind and you’re looking for someone to write the student’s book, I’d love to be considered.
