Critical Literary Reader (throughout my life, since I can remember)

a port-side
(touch to read … about rEd )

Craning to … look out!

rEd aWry is located in the old coastal settlement of Fremantle, Western Australia.

Once, Fremantle was a quiet mouth of an ancient river …

Today, Fremantle is a bustling port city located on the Swan River.

The strong red cranes of Fremantle’s port watch over our harbour town, working around the clock to welcome in and wave off all manner of voyaging cargo.

At rEd aWry, I work around the clock, too, welcoming in and waving off all manner of literary cargo.

My aim is to provide a strong ‘local’ service with a watchful ‘global’ outlook.

I work from my old Fremantle heritage home, and so you can (and may) contact me anytime, and I will work around your work clock, to meet your particular budget and deadlines.

Ooohhh, and one last thing …

Fremantle is the home of ‘the café strip’

If you like a good coffee, then you’re welcome to join me for one.

If your literary deadline is imminent, then I have just what I need to get your job done …
