About

Hello there! I’m Sally Johnson, the writer behind Omnia Writing Services.

After a 15-year career planning and managing projects for non-profits, like Oxfam GB and Greenpeace, and international public organisations, like the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), I realised that I enjoy drafting and crafting the documents that enable endeavours to launch, run smoothly, and record their journeys and outcomes.

A stint as content editor and publisher for Philips award-winning intranet in 2016 sealed my fate to make my next career all about writing.

Now, as a freelance business and technical writer, I’m available to help you realise your goals. I'm here to write for success, impact and change.

Understanding your needs

I know what it’s like to operate in the wealthiest and poorest countries, the largest and tiniest organisations, the fanciest headquarters and simplest field offices. I know the realities of working within a tight budget, strict institutional requirements and even insecurity. I can empathise with your challenges and embrace your ambitions. I have understood the language of different clients—I can understand yours too!

What you can expect

As your writing partner, I will work closely with you to achieve the impressive and quality documentation you, your stakeholders and your readers need. You can be sure that I will look out for different perspectives and needs, ask questions and double check details. I will also be reliable, professional and respect confidentiality at all times.

How I work

I work from my home office in Utrecht, The Netherlands, and am available to work remotely using Skype, phone, email or video conferencing software.

In my spare time. Growing and living greener

My passion is growing as many edibles as I can on my 3m2 roof terrace. In 2016, I harvested over 3kg of cherry tomatoes and 3 months’ worth of carrots and beans! I’m avidly learning about permaculture and looking for opportunities to do technical writing in this area.
