Why do I enjoy working at Schrijf.be? There’s one reason for it. You. Because you do something wonderful and important. You believe. Whether it’s a product or a service, a company or just a concept, you believe in it. You believe that it has potential. You put your time into it. As well as your money and effort. In other words? You invest in it. But this doesn’t mean that anyone else will.
Although they most certainly would … if they believed in it. And this is where I come in. I make them believe. By writing text. Text that tells them what they need to know. But most importantly, text that captures exactly what inspired you. And uses it to inspire them.
It’s easy when you have the right tool for the job. For informative and inspirational text, the toolbox contains the rules of grammar and an endless choice of words and phrases. Do you need fresh copy written to your specifications? Or would you like your French or Dutch text transformed into English? It’s all part of the fun for me. Because adjusting the flow of a sentence for greater impact is fascinating. As thrilling as making the little tweak which sees a mundane word turn into a powerhouse of meaning. Playing with language. It’s a dream job.
Is it a product? A service? A concept, a company or just a possibility? It makes no difference. You believe it has potential. You believe it deserves to be shared with others. And to do this? You don’t need to love language. You don’t need to share my passion for grammar. You don’t even need to enjoy writing in English. You just need to contact Schrijf.be.
