Proposal Writing, CV Writing & Copy-editing
Writing to help you achieve your purpose
More proposal wins · More interviews · More connection with your readers
I believe in people and organisations realising their potential in the pursuit of a stronger society or a healthier earth. I know that the right words have the power to open new gates. I help open those gates by giving personal attention, offering quality and making sure that words match their purpose. I also bring project proposals to life, carefully craft CVs, and copy-edit all kinds of documents. Interested to know more? Read on or get in touch!
Hello! I'm Sally Johnson, ready to write to help you achieve your purpose.
I partner with organisations to help them deliver grant proposals or project documents that are clear, convincing and compliant. The result? Improved chances of winning opportunities.
I create powerful and customised CVs that help propel job-hunting in the non-profit and international development & humanitarian worlds. The result? More interviews for your ideal job.
I elevate documents such as handbooks, procedures, reports, brochures and strategies to the level of professionalism, quality and reader-friendliness that clients and audiences welcome.
Proudly serving international organisations, NGOs,
relief & development specialists and more
Excellent writing skills and massive powers of diplomacy.

Sally has the ability to adapt very quickly into a new programme or content.
Lonneke van den Hoonaard, Director, IHLIA
Working with Sally was a very positive experience for me.
Felipe, Regional Programme Manager
What themes do you work with?
I'm quick to adapt to most themes but my normal areas are peace & security, humanitarian response, governance & institutional strengthening, civil society development, sustainability, conservation, arts & culture, social science research, intellectual property (including IT, pharmaceutical, energy) and organisational development & change.
How much do you charge?
My prices for proposal writing and copy-editing depend on various factors such as complexity of the call or document, length and turnaround time. If you need either service, feel free to ask me for a quote and I'll come back to you asap. My prices for CV writing are fixed.
Are you a copywriter?
I'm not a copywriter in the marketing and creative content sense. Instead, I write original copy for grant proposals, CVs and many kinds of organisational documents, e.g. handbooks and procedures.
How can you write proposals and CVs?
I love doing both! In a way, the end game is similar. You - an organisation or an individual - want your proposal or CV to get noticed and win. I have accumulated experience and certifications in both, and my motivation is to help you achieve your purpose, so it makes sense to do both!
Do you offer training?
At the moment I offer mentoring in planning and writing grant proposals. Why not contact me to discuss more?
