Copywriting/editing:

“I have never come across a young creative person with such a voracious appetite for work … He is a first-rate wordsmith, equally comfortable working in electronic, digital and print media.”

I engaged Greg Foyster to execute a project for YSAS – a specialist youth alcohol and drug service that supports Victoria’s most vulnerable youth … His professional and enthusiastic approach during the tender period, combined with some outstanding writing examples, made him an obvious choice. Greg managed the whole project based on a loose brief, including coordinating interviews, following up and clarifying facts and delivering drafts for feedback, plus proofreading …  The work he produced met the brief exactly and was a delight to read. I would absolutely recommend Greg Foyster to anyone seeking a freelance journalist/copywriter.

~ Joel Stanton, Senior Marketing Co-ordinator, YSAS
