Mercury Writing



Copywriters are sexy, glamorous and cool. Mercury Writing bucks this trend, but we are great at our job. Why? Because we’re pedantic bastards. We'll tinker with your text until it’s perfect. That's just how we roll.

Academic proofreading and formatting making PhD theses readable since 2012

Yeah, we do other stuff: web design, layout and formatting, embeefment*, proofreading... even music. You have to be creative these days and we play to our strengths.


We'll transcribe data from any audio or video format. It's all typed out verbatim, ready for analysis. We take confidentiality very seriously and we're fast.

It's £7.50 per 1000 words, with a discount for poor people.


Perhaps you’re thinking ‘this isn’t much of a website’. That's fine. However, we believe:


“Everything should be made as simple as possible... but not simpler”


Albert Einstein (misattributed)


These are the prices

10% of our fee goes straight to charity (Mind or Shelter). Why? Because we're decent.


Now get in touch

Andrew Fletcher...|...fletch [at]|...+44(0)783 506 8540

Email or call (it’s just me; why pretend otherwise?), tell me what you want and I’ll give you a timescale and a quote.


Do we do Facebook? Are we on Twitter?

NO! Go away (Stalkers and weirdos can dig me up on LinkedIn).

* What was that? Embeefment?..Well, clients are always asking us to 'beef up' their text, so we invented a word for it.
