The online home for writer, editor, project manager and publishing consultant Mark Brend.


Writing and editing

I write and edit books of 100,000 words and leaflets of 250 words, with virtually everything you can think of in between – including web copy, annual reports, feature articles, radio scripts, CD liner notes, exhibition programmes, reviews, press releases and organisational histories.

I use words creatively and succinctly, without clutter, and without recourse to marketing-speak and jargon.

Project management and consultancy

As a consultant and project manager I help people to make print publications, websites, videos and mixed media projects. Usually this involves working with creative teams, including designers, photographers, writers and film-makers.

Most of my work is in the arts, publishing and the charity sector.
