About Wordscene

Wordscene is a one-stop shop for all your writing, editing and proofreading needs, based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. We're writers, and we work for writers. That's the simple way of putting it - and the best way to describe what we do here. We're here to help you with all your communication needs - whatever you need to write or edit, we can turn our hand to it.

Although we're based here in Yorkshire (which is of course God's own country) our client base is global - we work with clients in Europe, the US and the Middle East on commercial and academic projects. So why not have a look around and get in touch with us to see how we can help you?

Who are we?

That's a good question.
