And The Word Factory is ...
Words - Rory Baxter
Rory has been Assistant Editor of Medical Laboratory World, Laboratory Practice, the Journal of Medical Engineering and Technology, and The Master Builder; Editor of Production Engineer, Numerical Engineering and Computerised Manufacturing; Editorial Director of an international PR company; Editor of a local authority website; Editor of a BBC magazine; and Editor of an award-winning public sector website.
He's also produced words for hundreds of businesses in various sectors, including press releases, technical articles, brochures, newsletters, adverts [magazine and radio], and much more. His work has been published around the world and appeared on top TV channels such as Sky News.
When not working with direct clients, Rory has delivered copywriting, press release and account management services for countless PR agencies.
What's important in all this is that Rory knows the difference between what fills editorial columns and what fills editors' deleted items folders and bins - he ought to, he's thrown away skiploads of material in his time.
Rory is renowned for being pedantic about quality and accuracy yet still able to meet the tightest of deadlines. It's the journalistic training in him. He can't help it.
