Peruse; to read & examine with great care

This is a simple definition of our business name, but at Peruse writing & editing, peruse is not only our business name, but also our business motto, and professional goal. At the same time, perusing is just the beginning of how we define ourselves.

At Peruse, we have worked all over the world, and worked with people from all over the world so even though we are based in Adelaide in South Australia, we can still find a writing, editing or document solution to suit your needs if you are outside of Australia. Peruse has extensive experience working with clients around Australia, and in the US, the UK, New Zealand, India and Asia and we are able to adapt writing and document styles for differing cultures and audiences, as well as maintain a fluid and beneficial relationship with international clients via email, instant messages and Skype.

We are also aware of how important a short turnaround time can be, and as an international client, you can take special advantage of time differences—while you are sleeping, we are working on your documents, which can be waiting in your inbox the next morning. 

Peruse Writers

We have formed a small team of Australian writers who work on a contract basis for Peruse to help us meet increased demand—especially the high volume of SEO keyword articles often required for successful search engine optimisation of client websites. All contracted work is carefully reviewed by the Peruse Directors before submission to the client to ensure it remains of the highest quality.
