About Pro Writings


We are a small, friendly business who is committed to helping other small (or large!) friendly businesses get ahead, as well as catering for individuals who may need our services.

We are based in the South Waikato town of Putaruru. We can work for clients anywhere in New Zealand or overseas.

We specialise in proofreading and editing for individuals and/or businesses, with documents ranging from manuscripts to business proposals and everything in between.

Additionally, we offer copy typing and content writing. We understand there are often testing times when you are short on time or man-power, and we aim to assist by providing that helping hand you may need to meet that deadline.

Owner/operator Sarah is experienced, with an acute eye for detail and is passionate about what she does. She is currently studying for a Diploma with the New Zealand Institute of Business Studies as well as enjoying important family time with her partner and three children.


“I am Sarah, originally from the UK, now I reside in New Zealand, in the South Waikato town of Putaruru; ‘the home of the owl’.

My home includes my partner and our three children, the mini ponies, dogs, cats, sheep, chooks, and anything else feathered, furred, or four-legged, which may or may not be on the list at the present time.

Home prior to Putaruru was the Steam Punk capital of New Zealand, Oamaru, in spectacular North Otago. Before that, home was the medieval town of Salisbury, in the South-South-West of England – also home to the tallest cathedral spire in England, and the World-famous, ‘Stonehenge’.

How did I come to be 18,543 kilometres away today? Well, that true story on the homepage is the short version. The long version could be described as the road less travelled. And here I am.


I have always been that irritating grammar goody-goody, who will spot that wayward apostrophe, or that lurking double-L where it shouldn’t be. I can’t help it, it just comes naturally to me. I enjoy reading other people’s work and correcting errors, turning a good piece of writing into a great one.

As well as a lifetime of correcting incorrect spelling and punctuation, I have a background in agriculture and farm management, retail, and all things equine.

In another life I was a jockey.

I read extensively when I have free time(!)and enjoy learning something new every day.

I would love to work with you, to polish your existing writing to perfection, or to create something entirely new for you.”
