Renee Moodie, Safe Hands

If you say someone is or has safe hands, you mean that person can be trusted to do a job well and without making mistakes. 

The expression comes from British journalism (and is used a lot in cricket, of a fielder who never drops a catch). 

My bottom line: I offer fast, accurate and trustworthy services – from coaching to editing to online journalism. 

  • Renee’s attention to detail is second to none. I commissioned her work through an extensive list of references and she did an impeccable job. If you need an editor with a keen eye, a respectful hand and a methodical approach, look no further. Highly recommended.

  • Renee was an instrumental part of my journey into the world of journalism and copy editing. She has pretty much taught me all I know! She is such a patient teacher and coach. I value her mentorship greatly and am confident that she will ably steer many more up-and-coming writers and editors to achieve great things in their careers. Young aspirant journalists would be very lucky to have Renee as a teacher and colleague.

  • Renee Moodie is probably the most patient, helpful trainer I have had in a long, long time. We have worked in large groups, small groups and on a one-on-one basis, and she never ceases to amaze me with her patience, how tuned in she is to individual needs, her understanding of people and the dynamics of working with difficult and often complex personalities. Her years of experience in journalism means she is both knowledgeable and meticulous. Renee’s attention to detail and sensitivity to the needs of the people she trains is legendary. I would have no qualms about using her as a trainer.

  • Thanks for a splendid job on the book. Your corrections were all spot-on, and none of your marks were unclear or ambiguous. Thanks also for paying such attention to word-breaks. These days, a lot of proofreaders don’t bother to check breaks.
