Simon Wong is a freelance Writer and communications specialist from Dunedin

Kia ora!

I'm Simon and I'm here to help you shine.

As a communications professional and former journalist I’ve spent almost 15 years weaving engaging stories that empower people to take action, make decisions, and understand the world around them. Turning complex information and organisational objectives into simple, plain English is my bread and butter.

With a strong background in communications, particularly within health adjacent government agencies, I consider myself a writer at heart. Having spent a decade crafting news for TV, radio, digital, and print, I've honed the art of storytelling across all mediums and subjects.

I'm versatile and adaptable, making me the perfect fit for any project, regardless of size. While I can help with a wide range of subject matters, I do have a particular interest in science, conservation, and environmental stories. I recently completed a postgraduate certificate in science communication from Otago University and currently write regular features in the conservation space.

Aside from writing, I'm experienced in event photography, capturing moments from drumming camps, conferences, and awards nights.

Whether you're an individual, a business, a community group, or have an initiative looking to reach your audience, let's chat and create a tailored plan that suits your unique needs.

I'm available for one-off projects or longer-term collaborations.

Whatever you want to achieve, I can offer services to help you get there. This includes:

  • Crafting your story: I'll make sure your message hits the right notes with your audience.

  • Big-picture plans: Let's map out a strategy to make sure your communication hits the bullseye.

  • Step-by-step strategies: I'll guide you through every step to ensure your communication goals are met.

  • Creating your voice: Together, we'll develop a unique set of messages that speak directly to your audience.

  • Showcasing your success: Let's turn your achievements into compelling stories that resonate with potential clients.

  • Web wizardry: Need web copy that pops? I've got you covered.

  • Lights, camera, action: From script to screen, I'll help you craft videos that captivate your audience.

  • Polishing your prose: Whether it's proofreading or a complete edit, I'll make sure your content shines.

  • Capturing the moment: I'll freeze-frame those unforgettable moments, whether it's a corporate event or a community gathering.

If you're interested in a helping hand, feel free to get in touch for a no obligation chat. Let's discuss your project and how we can achieve your goals together.
