Do you need some help with your written material? Perhaps I can lend a hand.

I provide reliable, high-quality editing and proofreading services. I can edit or proofread reports, articles, magazines, books, marketing content and much more, in Word or PDF format.

As an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), I’m committed to follow its Code of Practice, Ensuring Editorial Excellence, which assures high standards of editorial work and customer care.

What I can do for you

I can provide different types of service, according to your needs. For publishers, my core services are copy-editing and proofreading.

If you’re not in the publishing game, though, these terms might not mean much to you. So, I’ll just list the main things I can do for you and let you choose:

  • fix errors and inconsistencies in spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • highlight anything that seems unclear
  • reword and/or query anything that seems unclear (if I can work out what it means, I’ll reword it; otherwise I’ll
    ask you to clarify the meaning)
  • make sure your writing follows a required style
  • make sure your writing is suited to its target audience
  • ​check referencing (notes, sources, etc.).

My fees are competitive, and in line with those typically charged by trained UK editorial professionals. I usually give a quote for each job, according to the type of content, the kind of service you ask for and the amount of work needed.

What I’ve done

My main customers in recent times have been:

  • publishing companies (academic; mainstream non-fiction, mainly sport)
  • other businesses (including IT consultancy, marketing, business-to-business communications)

You can find a more detailed portfolio, and testimonials from some of my customers, on my website.

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). Before taking this up full-time in 2013, I had a 26-year IT career as an analyst, developer, project manager and team leader, in the transport, financial services, government, telecoms and retail sectors. There’s more about all this here.
