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

My reliable, high-quality editing and proofreading services can make a big difference to reports, magazines, books, marketing content and much more. I can work with both Word and PDF documents.

I can work with most subjects, but my specialisms are IT, sport (particularly football and cricket) and rock music.

I’m an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), and 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

If you’re involved in running a company, my business editing service can give your written material a professional sheen – so 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, according to your needs:

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

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

I can also develop a style guide, to help ensure your organisation’s written material has a consistent, coherent ‘look and feel’.

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 and the work that’s 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

My website has a full portfolio, 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 SfEP courses.

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. 

There’s more about my background here.
