TESTIMONIALS

Want to know why clients love working with me? Check out these snazzy testimonials.

I’m the commissioning editor for News Corp’s women’s network and I have commissioned a number of stories through Zoe over the past few years.

Not only is Zoe an incredibly skilled writer, she is also sensitive, compassionate and creative, and always files before deadline. She’s open to feedback and a true joy to work with.

Some of my most memorable commissions have been through Zoe and I always know that a story is in good hands when Zoe is at the helm.

I would unreservedly recommend her for all your writing and copywriting needs.

Bek Day

Former commissioning editor, Kidspot and Whimn

I chose to work with Zoe because of her extensive journalism background and willingness to tackle challenging subject matter.

I found working with Zoe to be seamless. She’s great with communication, taking complicated content and crafting it into easy-to-read copy, while sticking to timelines.

I have used Zoe many times now for copywriting, copyediting and proofreading, and keep going back because she’s truly excellent at what she does.

Zoe is a friendly and excellent copywriter who I’ll definitely work with again and again.

Copywriter and Voiceover Artist, Bec Djapovic Communications

I engaged Zoe to work on my new start up brand! I have been following Zoe’s work on social media for a while and have always been impressed with her storytelling.

I cannot speak more highly of Zoe’s work! If you’re looking for someone who goes above and beyond writing copy, she is your girl. She will make clever and strategic writing choices to make your business meet its goal.

She’s not your plain Jane copywriter. I have used other copywriters before, and Zoe is highly skilled by a long shot. The best part is she’s efficient, and understands SEO too, so she’ll weave that in seamlessly.

Zoe took my very scientific, technical and dull copy and made it so much more sellable, relatable and readable. My products are fantastic, but the way Zoe spins the words takes my products to an even higher level!

I am so grateful I found you. Thank you, you are worth your weight in gold!

Shirley Be

Owner, Youthphoria Beauty

Zoe is a professional and capable freelance writer who can produce clean, engaging copy on anything from a department store complaint that’s trending on social media to an investigation of the aged care system.

Her copy is clean, she files on time and is very pleasant to deal with.

She has good ideas, handles feedback well and always has a sense of humour.

Kerry Warren

Former commissioning editor, News.com.au

Zoe was consistently friendly, helpful and dependable during her time [as an intern]  at Mamamia.

She assisted with the moderation of comments on the website, loading content and images in WordPress, preparing image galleries and conducting article research for the editorial team.

Zoe was also responsible for administrative duties including answering the phones, managing the reception desk, collecting mail and various other errands as required by editorial staff. She completed these duties efficiently and politely.

Zoe has commendable written and oral communication skills. She is quick to respond to requests from superiors and is thorough in her work.

Jamila Rizvi

Former editor-at-large, Mamamia Women's Network

Zoe is not only a brilliant writer and researcher, she is a pure pleasure to collaborate with.

I regard Zoe as the future of journalism for her high ethical standards, commitment to publishing the truth and her genuine caring for those she interviews and works with.

I’m honoured to feature Zoe’s work in my upcoming book and next magazine issue because she is a top-notch professional who truly cares about the work she produces.

Zoe is destined to make a positive and powerful impact in the journalism world and I feel so lucky to be working with her, as she continues on her writing, editing and publishing journey.

If you are looking for someone to tell your story as good, if not better than you could yourself, look no further than Zoe Simmons.
Zoe had contacted me in regards to an internet post of mine that she had come across, and wanted to turn it into an article.

With my approval, Zoe went on to write an article telling my story that went viral! I ended up getting attention from all over the globe from people talking about my story that Zoe had expertly written up.

Zoe knew exactly what questions to ask me, and talking to her was easy, as it was like talking with a friend. Her attention to her clients as well as her attention to detail in writing was spectacular and I couldn’t recommend someone more for the job!

 

Vega Blossom

Interviewee for a viral story

Zoe is an exceptional writer. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her over the past few years, and her expertise in the written word has been a huge asset to my work and our organisation.

She has a way of communicating things in a way that’s engaging, interesting and easy-to-consume–even for challenging topics, like forensic mental health. She can take complex information, and weave it into a story that can’t help but draw the reader in. Zoe has done both writing and editing work for me, and I am always impressed with the quality of her work. Whether it’s assisting with professional bios, superb feature writing, powerful video scripts, thought-provoking speeches, reports, or even major awards applications–which resulted in my nomination as a finalist amongst a very impressive cohort of nominees–Zoe is a true professional who deeply cares about the work she produces.

Zoe is exceptionally easy work with. I would highly recommend her for any projects you might have in mind, and hope to work with her again in the future.

Professor James Ogloff AM

Research Centre Director, Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science

You have done such an amazing job on this project, Zoe.

SO SO GOOD. I could have not done better myself. I love how you went the extra mile, filled in the gaps, injected tone and fun, and just got the job done so speedily. Brilliant!

I hired Zoe to do an edit and proofread of an annual report I was working on for an NGO here in the Northern Territory.

She was very thorough and offered great suggestions throughout the document.

I would definitely hire Zoe again! It was great to know my document was in safe hands.

Nyree Slatter

Chief Wordsmith, Well Versed NT

I am the CEO of a government mental health organisation, and for the past 18 months, Zoe has written my CEO communications across the organisation. She has written long and short-form emails and newsletters to staff, external messaging from myself and the Board, assisted with speeches and presentations, as well as a whole host of other high-quality content.

Zoe is a true professional. I am always very impressed with the high standard of her work. It is error-free, engaging and informative, and has been an enormous time-saver.

She captures my tone of voice perfectly, and makes me sound warm, friendly, and professional–even on extremely sensitive topics.

She certainly has a way with words, and is always a pleasure to work with. I know any writing project is in expert hands when Zoe is involved. 

I would highly recommend her for any writing projects. Thank you, Zoe for all your help.

Zoe recently proofread a 2500-word document for me and did a stellar job.

She picked up all the little things I’d missed, as I’d read the document so many times.

Thank you for your valuable suggestions, speedy turnaround, and attention to detail.

I’ve already recommended her to other copywriters. I’d highly recommend Zoe if you need another pair of eyes to run over your copy.

Amanda Corica

Marketing consultant and copywriter, Amanda Corica

I’ve worked with Zoe for almost five years now and she is such a talented writer with a keen editing eye.

Zoe was my editor at a publication for several years, and has remained a trusted peer and industry professional. She’s always given thoughtful advice and worked with me to create insightful pieces that inform, entertain, and educate.

Having read numerous articles of hers, and received her guidance and feedback, I know she will produce incredible work time and time again.

Aisha Sini

Zoe’s attention to detail, organisation and professionalism are exceptional.

She took on an important copy edit with gusto, asked questions and took responsibility for delivering a great result.

I won’t hestiate to use her again.

Sarah Spence

Content strategist and lead SEO copywriter, Content Copywriting Australia

I met Zoe in the beginning of one of the most vulnerable and stressful times in my life.

She approached me to write a story to help my husband and I after seeing our Go Fund Me page after I was diagnosed with cancer and faced a hysterectomy at 30, with no children.

Zoe was professional, compassionate, empathetic and so supportive throughout my whole journey. The story she wrote for us was published by multiple publications, and she really made sure our story was heard.

I can not thank her enough for her ongoing support throughout that time, and her continued friendship that blossomed out of an awful situation.

Lauren Wilkin

Interviewee

I reached out to Zoe to help me write a speech for my granddaughter’s 16th birthday. I had no idea what to write, but Zoe helped me by writing an amazing, heartfelt and thoughtful speech after just one small conversation.

Her service was fast and friendly, and I absolutely loved the finished product. It was perfect; I didn’t need to change a single word.

I’d highly recommend Zoe for any writing requirements you might have.”

I worked with Zoe recently, who proofread five pages of a client’s website copy. I found her extremely easy to deal with. Zoe was both professional and approachable.

She was meticulous in her feedback and her suggested edits were great. My client was very happy.

I recently engaged Zoe to proofread copy for a client’s new website.

Zoe is an enthusiastic and competent proof reader trained in SEO copywriting. I knew she would understand the structure and flow of the website.

Zoe completely the work quickly and to a very high standard. I look forward to working with her again

I’ve hired Zoe to proofread my copy, as well as copywriting projects for my clients. Zoe is not only super meticulous, but she leaves helpful suggestions for copy changes and word swaps.

I was delighted with the changes she suggested. I could tell Zoe fully immersed herself into the projects and really wanted me to present the best work possible. I really appreciated the extra effort she put it in.

This has made Zoe one of my go-to proofreaders. I can’t recommend her highly enough!

Zoe came to my rescue at the last minute when I needed a blog written quickly for a client – and she aced it.

The best part? The client loved it. I’d hire Zoe again in a heartbeat (you should too).

Glenn Broome

Founder, GBD Consultancy

I don’t even know where to start. Zoe is not only an incredible journalist, she is also an amazing person who I will be forever grateful for.

Zoe reached out to me when she noticed my endometriosis awareness post being shared on social media. Although we are the other side of the world from each other, we connected instantly over messenger.

She very professionally covered my story which led to it going worldwide and being noticed by top specialists in different countries. Still over a year later, our story is being shared far and wide.

Zoe has stayed in touch since day one and since become a dear friend of mine who I respect so much. Without Zoe and her journalism skills, life would be boring!!! She is so passionate and dedicated. Thankyou for being YOU.

Rachel Berwick

I just launched my ethical enterprise, Karuna Dawn, and had no idea how to pitch to publications and journalists.

Zoe was fabulous in providing me with tips and ideas on how to create an enticing pitch.

I couldn’t believe how open and sharing she is of her knowledge, and how much she truly wanted to help me.

Thanks so much, Zoe!

Sridevi Blair
