Editing and Proofreading
If you have a draft piece of writing that needs attention, I can edit and fine-tune it for you.
Have you worked on your story, report, brochure or e-book for a while now – but just can’t get the wording right?
Sometimes you need an independent person – a professional editor – to cast an eye over your writing, read it from the point of view of the person for whom the words are intended, and make changes to make the text clearer, stronger and more effective.
I have been editing publications ever since I left school, and it has been a part of all my jobs since. I find editing very rewarding – to make clients happy by returning a piece of text that has obviously improved.
As your editor, I’ll work on your draft copy to
- improve structure and grammar
- get your message across better
- remove duplication
- tighten things up or expand on parts to explain things better
- or even just to fit a certain word count.
Need that last-minute peace of mind that you’re good to go to print? Let me proofread your copy.
A natural proofreader, I easily pick up typos and spelling or grammatical errors, inconsistencies, duplication and ambiguities.
I pride myself in being very accurate and having a good eye for detail.
Let me look at your copy and make the necessary corrections now, before you have your material printed.
That way, you save yourself any embarrassment of having your readers or customers pointing out errors to you – and you don’t have to consider doing a costly reprint!
Depending on your requirements, I can also quote for a combination of proofreading and editing. Just contact me to discuss your project.
Projects I DON’T take on are editing and proofreading of theses, dissertations, scripts, manuscripts and books.
I’m happy to consider all other written materials for editing or proofreading. Just get in touch to discuss your project.
