Who We Are

Founded by Kelly Naude in 2017 as a passion project, the Grammar Goblin grew quickly from an editing or content creation job here and there to where it is today.  We are proud to boast a large portfolio of work that we have done, including large and small scale editing, proofreading, content creation, SEO rich writing, CV and cover letter creation, ghost writing, speech writing, script writing, social media image creation, social media long and short-form writing, blog posts, social media and online marketing strategy, video creation and editing, product reviews, help with school and university assignments, assistance with public speaking competition pieces and more.

Something that drives us and that we enjoy so much is seeing our clients have a vision, work towards it and achieve it.  We are sure to do our very best, every single time, and just love to see you succeed!

We are passionate about words.  Writing, reading, editing, grammar, tone, speaking and creativity with words are what we are good at.  That is why we offer not only impeccable writing services, but also top-notch editing and proofreading services too.

Our team consists of dedicated, educated and inspired individuals who are creative as they are pedantic about our work.  We strive to offer the best possible service to every single client, every single time, and in so doing, add a little magic to every single piece that we work on.

Goblin Services


Our writing skills are vast and we are able to write in a huge array of tones and styles.  Contact us and let us know what you need and we will ensure you receive the best possible outcome for your project.


We offer full editing.  You can choose between 2 options within this service:

♦  We make the changes and provide you with the finished product

♦  We make the changes and use the “Track Changes” function in Word.  You can then go through the changes that have been made and accept or decline each one.


When we proofread your piece, we will look only for glaring mistakes.  These will include mostly grammar, typos and spelling.

Social Media Management

We are passionate about social media and love to manage your accounts.  We specialise in Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn and are happy to post away to your Twitter account too.  We provide branded images as well as long and short-form text for your social media content, and take pride in maintaining your business brand, look, feel and tone.

We have a few packages for you to choose from, so whatever your budget allows, we will be sure to give you the best value for money, getting you noticed.
