Writing and communications

Writing and editing

At The Oxford Comma, we convey your messages in clear, accurate language that means what you say, and says what you mean.

We’ve helped scientists, educators and architects distil complex information into clear language their peers, the media and the public can understand.

We’ve translated academic papers into media releases and web copy, and written impassioned political speeches to stimulate change.

We’ve crafted engaging video scripts for university recruitment campaigns and condensed convoluted legislation into accessible sound-bites.

The result is professional, accurate and consistent communications pieces that say what you want to say to the people who need to hear it.

Writing workshops

Plain language is easier to read and understand.

Plain language leads to action. 

But plain writing is all too rare in government, business and academia.

Our workshops help people from entry to executive level write to inform their readers and listeners, and to prompt them to act.

We can target workshops to help improve your team's productivity - in areas such as punctuation and grammar, or writing for government or the media. 

Strategy and planning

In communication, planning is everything.

Whether you’re about to launch a new product or service, expand an existing one, or take a new direction, it’s critical that you consider how best to communicate your move.

At The Oxford Comma we’ll recommend where, when and how to pitch your product or service.

Whether you’re a one-person marketing team or have a team of in-house communications experts, we can examine your communications activity and recommend how to improve results.
