I offer skilled editorial support to help you to communicate well with your readers. My goal is to collaborate with you in improving your text so that it respects your voice while meeting readers’ needs.
I offer on-screen proofreading using Word, PDF and PowerPoint, and work on hard copy using BSI mark-up symbols. I particularly enjoy proofreading for publishers, though I am happy to proofread for other clients too.
I edit non-fiction texts using Word’s track changes, comments and styles. I also edit in PowerPoint. In recent years I have developed a strong interest in copyediting for publishers and can use copyediting tags/codes where required.
I do other types of work at the request of clients, including writing. I do NOT currently offer a complete publishing/book production service for self-publishing authors, preferring to focus on the language aspects of editing and proofreading when manuscripts are close to completion.
Anyone who writes and/or publishes will benefit from the work of a good editor or proofreader.
I use my attention to detail, thoroughness, language skills and in-depth knowledge of the editing and proofreading processes to help my clients make the most of what they are writing or to assist publishers in doing so on behalf of their authors.
I nurture a collaborative relationship with clients, offering a supportive and constructive service to bring out the best in their work.
