Who we are

Morag MacTaggart Director

In 2014 Morag received a cry of help from one of Dunedin’s principal corporates. Poor writing practice was wasting time and company resources.

Jette de Jong Associate

Jette has had a love of writing and words since she learnt how to print her name at the age of 3. While her siblings spent their pocket money on sweets, she could be found in the stationery aisle, adding to her collection of pens, pencils and notebooks.

Diane Dupres Associate

Diane discovered the art of a good performance at the tender age of seven. Using improvisation she managed to talk her way out of a difficult situation with the school bully. She drew quite an appreciative audience and lived to tell the tale. From then on she was hooked by a love of all things performative.
