About The Oxford Comma

The Oxford Comma is a communication strategy and writing consultancy.

We work with you to plan and create communication activity and material to suit your needs, style and goals.

We’re committed to using the Oxford comma and other tools at our disposal to craft and distribute messages that are clear and unambiguous.

Our workshops help people in government, business and academia write clearly and simply for maximum impact.

Based in Adelaide, The Oxford Comma works with designers, photographers and developers to produce documents, websites, visual presentations and digital media on time, to budget.

Principal Karen Phillips is a former print journalist, editor and journalism lecturer who will help you reach your audiences in business, government, media and the public.
