Your ideas, polished.

EDITING AND PROOFREADING SERVICES

As an editor and proofreader, I help teachers, students and researchers perfect documents. I work with job seekers to polish CVs, cover letters and applications.

Services

Editing

Your text worked on for style, tone, structure, flow and clarity.

Proofreading

Your text checked for spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and style.

If you aren’t sure whether you need editing or proofreading, I can review your text and recommend a service.

Why work with me?

Qualified

Put your document in the hands of an experienced freelance proofreader. I’m certified by the College of Media and Publishing.

Authentic

Your proofread document feels like you but on a really good day. Preserving your voice, I’ll add the finesse you need to achieve your goals.

Accurate

Achieve perfection. I use text-to-speech software to listen to your document aloud and iron out sticky sentences, clunky word use or punctuation errors.

The result

Confident

Present your findings, submit your CV or deliver your speech knowing there are no mistakes to hold you back.

Credible

Error-free and easy to understand, your text has more weight and authority.

Successful

Professionally proofread documents boost your competitive advantage and bring your goals closer.

Save time

Allow me to do the time-intensive job of perfecting your writing while you focus on what you do best.

Improve your writing

As well as flawlessly finished documents, you get tracked changes to help you improve your writing.

I delivered editing and proofreading services for my client, a project coordinator. With the help of my work on their job applications, they were shortlisted for seven out of the eight roles they applied for.

How it works

Book me for projects of all sizes, from one-off documents to large-scale commissions or ongoing retainers. I’m often available for quick turnaround projects.

  • Send me an email to tell me about your project, word count and deadline.
  • I’ll review your text and send over a proposal.
  • When you’re ready to get started, we’ll both sign a contract. For a one-off project, you’ll pay a deposit or we’ll agree on a retainer.
  • I’m happy to work to a style guide of your choice. Otherwise, I use the Guardian Style Guide.
  • Once the work is underway, you’ll get regular updates from me on how it’s going.
  • After you’ve received your final document, I’ll be available for questions and amendments.
Pricing

I offer editing and proofreading services on an hourly rate to allow for different types and qualities of text. Send me your draft and I’ll give you a capped quote. If I finish quicker, you pay less. If I take longer, you won’t pay more. There is a minimum fee of £30 per project.

You’ll get

  • For proofreading, a document correct for grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and style.
  • For editing, the above plus edits for tone, structure and flow of the text.
  • One clean document that’s ready to use and a second that shows tracked changes. You can review the tracked changes to improve your writing.
  • You can contact me to discuss comments and changes.

Make sure your written communication opens the right doors for you.
