Writing, editing and design

WRENmedia is in the business of making science accessible, relevant and exciting to audiences around the world. This often means acting as an intermediary between scientists and a variety of target audiences, including policymakers, donors, development practitioners and farmers. Our work encompasses original writing and re-working existing documents into
new, more accessible formats, as well as both simple and more comprehensive editing for clarity and brevity.

Since 2012, we have been the editors of the Technical Centre for Agriculture and Rural Cooperation's (CTA) flagship Spore magazine. Previously, for 15 years,

we produced our own online magazine New Agriculturist (still available on the web although not published since 2013). We also work with international organisations to write impact case studies,

highlighting how their work is making a difference to communities in developing regions. Complex editing, such as distilling a multi-chapter report into a short summary document, demands not only good writing skills, but also the ability to judge what should be included and what can be left out. WRENmedia carries out this type of editing on behalf of many organisations, including The Platform for African European Partnership in Agricultural Research for Development (PAEPARD).

A clear, bold design and the careful choice of images give written products the visual punch to really make an impact. Effective design strikes the perfect balance between form and function, which emphasises the points that matter and makes it easier for the reader to grasp the key messages. At WRENmedia, our design work is frequently used alongside our writing and editing to provide a complete production package. We also offer a photo search service, sourcing the right images to bring the pages of publications to life.
