Press Advocates is a Northern Ireland-based network of editors, journalists, creative writers, researchers and public relations professionals who will work with you to plan, perfect and promote your business or written project. We can call on a range of expertise within the tourism, literary, arts, business, community and political sectors, within an Irish, UK or wider context. 

Whether your project needs the light and unobtrusive touch of an art conservator or a full-on restructuring, comparable to the work of a blacksmith, we take pleasure in making our business an art.

Creatively composed copy to help you stand out from the crowd.​

What we offer

Press Advocates offers a range of services to improve your manuscript or document; from a proof-read to the final polish it needs, to one of several more in-depth edits, which advise on structure, style and content, as well as grammar, punctuation and spelling.

If required, we undertake research, referencing and help with rewriting. We can also provide a developmental edit, which is an appraisal that takes place earlier in the writing process and focuses more on organisation, structure and direction.

We also welcome student (postgraduate) work. 

We are happy to liaise with agencies and professionals such as funding and statutory bodies, designers, photographers, legal advisers etc.
