About me

Hello! My name is Helen George. I am an editor and writing coach. I specialise in support for nature and ecology writers.

Email me helen@earthcopy.com

I provide structural and stylistic editing services. I help you to clearly communicate your thoughts and observations.

I work in two distinct fields. Readers of this blog know me as an editor of public communication material. I work with ecologists who want to educate the public about the environment.

On my other blog I advertise my services as an editor of travel and nature literature.

In both fields I help writers to share their ideas with clarity, coherence and logic.
