Success Story

Working with Kyla was a real pleasure. She is very knowledgeable, pleasant and easy to deal with. She was always quick to respond and worked efficiently. Her thoughtful advice about composition, sequencing and language were all valued. I am more than happy with the outcome. Testament to the quality of her work is the fact that well over a thousand copies have already been sold.”

The value of empathy in editing

Let me share with you what editing can be with empathy. We write to communicate, even if we are only communicating to ourselves. At the heart of communication is understanding. And understanding, well, that comes from empathy.

Empathy for readers

Many readers are distracted, tired or stressed. Some have a non-English native language; others have neurodivergent minds. With Plain English and empathy, I will help you reach these readers and more.

Empathy for story

Does your project touch on sensitive, triggering or polarising ideas? I will help your message be authentic and respectful.

Empathy for writers

Are you nervous about sharing your words with others? I provide gentle, sensitive feedback and will support each step you take towards your goals.

Why you can trust my editing

Since 2015, I’ve written, edited and typeset magazine articles, non-fiction books, essays, reports, worksheets, digital content, speeches and more.

Along with training from an in-house publishing internship, I am qualified with a post-graduate in Writing, Editing and Publishing and an Bachelor of Creative Industries (Creative and Professional Writing) with Distinction.

As a member of the Institute of Professional Editors for Australia and New Zealand, I am committed to its nationally approved Standards of Editing and Code of Ethics.

Why you can trust my empathy

My experiences have cultivated a high level of empathy. Raised in a mixed-race household, I experienced colliding and mixing cultures from a very young age.

Decades of learning about my own anxiety and being a carer for a person with severe mental illness has given me a great appreciation of varying mental and emotional states and has opened doors to friendships and alliances with many different people.
