About Word Constructions

Word Constructions saves businesses time and stress by writing or editing their documents, newsletters and web sites.
Communicate clearly with your customers by letting us write your content and manage your communications projects – while you get on with running your business.

We assist small and large businesses by finding out their needs before writing a word and offer packages and free newsletter content as well.

What do we do?

Word Constructions will spend the time learning about your business and its specific needs before starting to write for you. We will write in the style best suited to your business and the document in question, and we rewrite drafts until you are happy with the final result.

We are available for business and technical writing projects. This includes making a document from scratch, compiling your information into one document and editing existing documents. Word Constructions is also able to prepare newsletters (plain text or html,) reports and instruction manuals.

A full listing of our services, along with examples of our work, can be found here. We offer some package arrangements for businesses and web sites as listed on our packages page.

 If you require assistance with the writing or editing of any project, please contact us and we will advise you on your project.

Who are we?

Word Constructions is the business of writer Tash Hughes. Tash lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her partner and four children.

Tash has been known as a bookworm for most of her life and always had a passion for anything to do with reading and writing. Her natural instinct to help people is reflected in her style of gathering information before starting to write professionally.

What is Tash’s experience/background?

With a Bachelor of Science, Tash Hughes has a sound background in technical concepts, report writing and conducting research.

After some time working in educational facilities, Tash commenced work at a major Australian engineering company. It was here that Tash wrote many technical reports on various engineering projects, environmental impact reports and innumerable marketing submissions.

Tash has also worked as Communications Manager for a number of superannuation funds. In this capacity, Tash wrote Product Disclosure Statements, annul reports, financial services guides, fact sheets and compliant web copy, as well as managing annual statements, form redesign, member magazines and regular html newsletters.

Through involvement in various community groups and running Word Constructions, Tash has also edited newsletters and written brochures, funding applications, reports, procedures and employee contracts.
