Hello

Thanks for stopping by, it’s good to meet you.

You’re in the right place if you’re looking for a native English copywriter, proofreader and editor.

But, first things first. Let me introduce myself with the six questions that underpin almost all briefings:
Who | What | Where | How | Why | When

Want to know more? I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

 

who & what

Who am I?
I’m Christine Mes, a native English copywriter, proofreader, editor and trainer with over 18 years experience working for marketing, communication, PR and language agencies.

What do I do?
When it comes to copy for PR, marketing, advertising or communication, you name it and I’ve probably turned my hand to it. Websites, brochures, product leaflets, banners, press releases, backgrounders, product packaging, adverts, voiceover scripts, tenders, emails, event invitations and programmes, newsletters, magazine articles, …

I also do English editing and proofreading, plus I give workshops on business and writing skills.

 

where & how

Where do I work?
To be honest, I’m a little lost. About 27 years ago, I left my native England for sunny Belgian shores – and I haven’t got around to leaving yet.

I’m now based in Lier, happily working for agencies in and around Antwerp, Mechelen, Brussels, Hasselt …

How do I work?
First things first: talk and research. What’s your background? Your needs? Your future plans?

The more I understand about your current situation and future ambitions, the better I can tailor your message, translating it to fit the chosen medium so it reaches your target audience.

why & when

Why do I do this?
There are so many ways to answer this one… Why we’re here is a bit deep for this website, so I’ll focus on why I write. Simply put, I enjoy the challenge of simplifying a complex concept, ensuring a text reads smoothly, enticing your target audience to react in a specified way, … What’s not to enjoy?

Plus, as an “eternal student”, I treat each project as a new learning experience. Different markets, different products, different medium – there’s always something new to discover.

When’s the best time to contact me?
Well, now is as good a time as any. Feel free to contact me by email or phone to discuss your current or future projects.
