Josephine Thomas Consulting

Hi Faridah,

I am a writer/editor with over six years experience creating internal and external communications for companies in New Zealand and Melbourne.

I have extensive experience conducting both interpersonal and telephone-based interviews, as well as creating newsletters for both online and print distribution.

I am certain that I could design and produce copy for your newsletter within 8 hours, though extra time would also need to be negotiated for the duration of interviews and accumulation of content.

I look forward to hearing from you for further information about this position.

Kind regards, Josephine Thomas.

Estimated 8 hours

Hi Faridah I am a marketing professional with experience in writing copy, email campaigns and newsletters, and conducting interviews. I have written or compiled company newsletters for over 3 years, and can present interview content and other information in various formats to suit different audiences (for example if you would like to gear part of the newsletter towards students, and another towards parents). 24 pages is a fairly sizeable newsletter, and depending on the duration on site to conduct interviews, plus balance of information provided Vs content generated from scratch I estimate that each newsletter could take 8 hours however this could vary. I'd be happy to discuss further and provide a more accurate quote for you.

Hello Faridah. Thankyou for providing a copy of your newsletter - it looks great. My quote is a flat fee per newsletter that incorporates one day at your campus to conduct interviews, take photos and gather material. It also includes a further 36 hours work for writing, editing and layout. Realistically, I believe it will take this amount of time to be completed to a high level of quality. Please note I have worked previously as a journalist and sub-editor for News Limited and have covered education rounds before. I am not a graphic designer however if you have a template/program that is simple to work with I am happy to proceed. If you have any further questions please feel free to send me a private message and I can provide you with some reviews from clients I have recently worked with. Kind regards.

Hello. I am a journalist and editor with 20 years experience. I would like to know if you have a sample of a previous newsletter you could share or can you tell me approximately how any words/articles per page (in relation to photographs). I have written and edited for newspapers and magazines however before submitting a quote can you please tell me if I require a design program or is it simply a matter of using the template provided? Kind regards.


Hi JournoC, thanks for the enquiry. A sample is available here: http://rgit.edu.au/sites/default/files/EVOLVE_October 2015_Web.pdf

We aim for 200-250 words per page and 400 words for a double spread but it depends, particularly for the more exciting pictorial stories.
