Are you sure your written material is as good as it should be? If you’re not, I can lend a hand.

My editing and proofreading services can boost the quality and impact value of business documents, marketing content and much more.

I can work with Word and PDF documents. I can edit or proofread material in most subjects, but my specialisms are IT, business, sport (particularly football and cricket) and rock music.

I’m an Advanced Professional Member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), with a strong record of training and continuing professional development.

✍ What I can do for you

If you’re involved in running a company, my business editing service can give its written material a professional sheen, so that it will get your message across clearly and make a strong impression on your customers and prospects. This means doing some or all of the following, depending on your needs:

  • Making sure your writing is clear, concise, readable and suited to your target audience
  • Ensuring it follows a required style
  • Fixing errors and inconsistencies in spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • Reshaping it into plain English

I also provide copy-editing and proofreading services to publishers, and to other organisations who produce publications such as brochures, newsletters and client magazines.

Could your organisation benefit from using a style guide, to help make sure your written material has a consistent ‘look and feel’? I can develop one for you. If you already have one, I can review it and suggest enhancements.

My fees are competitive, and roughly in line with those typically charged by trained UK editorial professionals. I usually quote a fixed fee for each job, according to the type of content and the work that’s needed. I also can work for an hourly rate when that would be more suitable.

✅ What I’ve done

My main customers in recent years have been:

  • Publishing companies – including academic and mainstream non-fiction
  • Other businesses – including IT consultancy, marketing, business-to-business communications

My website has a portfolio of the work I’ve done, along with testimonials from some of my customers.

💼 My background

I’ve had extensive training in editorial work, including the Publishing Training Centre’s Basic Proofreading and Copy-editing courses (both passed with Merit) and a number of courses provided by the former Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP – now the CIEP).

Before taking this up full-time in 2013, I had a 26-year career in information technology as an analyst, developer, project manager and team leader, in the transport, financial services, government, telecoms and retail sectors.
