Vanessa James

I’m Vanessa James and I’ve been writing, editing, and proofreading professional documents for fourteen years in my career as a lawyer, policy analyst, business owner, and now a consultant.   I’m based in Auckland and I work for organisations throughout New Zealand.

I’ve produced reports, guidelines, codes of practice, consultation documents, articles, newsletters, policies, procedure manuals, and web content.  I’ve also developed consumer pamphlets, authored Requests for Proposals, and drafted submissions to Parliamentary Select Committees.

My clients include the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Health, businesses, community groups, schools, polytechnics, universities, and trusts.

My writing is clear, simple, and to the point.

My legal background means that I’m excellent at writing policies and procedures based on legislative requirements.

In addition to my law degree, I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts (Film & Television). I’ve worked as a production assistant on short films and television commercials and I run a digital media business specialising in digital storytelling.
