My name is Matthew Sweet. I’m a writer-slash-editor, and I provide bespoke editorial services to technical practitioners.

“Technical practitioners” are individuals (and sometimes organisations) that possess high competence in specific domains, as well as a strong bias for action. Thus, they are people with little time to devote to the navigation of the labyrinth that is the writing craft. Which is where I, and the “bespoke editorial services” I provide, come in. The services on offer are as follows:

  • Consulting – An ongoing dialogue that, first, considers the suitability of writing as a medium, and second, explores the effectiveness of different forms.
  • Translation – A process that takes in-depth interviews and turns them into written content.
  • Sparring – Discussion and breakdown of early concepts, outlines and drafts. A.K.A. “macro-editing”.
  • Tune Ups – A systematic, rigorous, line-by-line analysis of late-stage drafts. A.K.A. “micro-editing”.

The exact cocktail of service and support is unique to each individual or organisation, but common to each arrangement is the responsive, agile, intimate service I provide.


If you have any questions, would like more information, or would like to arrange an informal discussion, please contact me via email, or send me a message on Twitter. If you would like to evaluate my writing/thinking, head over to my HQ, Phronetic.
