Readable and adds value

About my Writing Without Waffle tipsheet:

“I’m sure that, like me, you get loads of stuff jamming your Inbox. It’s really good when something arrives that is readable and adds value. I’ve passed some of your emails to my Marketing Director before, and he was equally appreciative.”

Well done

“Well done with your newsletter. I think it’s the only one I read!”

Rare and refreshing

“In this age of “spin”, txtng and nu-speak, it is rare and refreshing to find a fellow advocate of plain speech. Jackie not only cuts through the waffle but helps others to do the same – and with a great sense of humour. I look forward to every issue of her “Writing Without Waffle” newsletter.”

Simon Beck, Alphabeck (on Ecademy)

Good job

“I love your newsletters by the way! Yes, I do enjoy your newsletters – your fun and love for what you do shows through and that makes a great newsletter! I open yours!!! and yours don’t look like a standard off the rack one!  again – good job, but I would expect nothing less from you.”
