I offer skilled editorial support – tailored to your writing and publishing needs – to help you communicate clearly and accurately with your readers.
I offer on-screen proofreading using Word, PDF and PowerPoint, and work on hard copy using BSI mark-up symbols. I also use Futureproofs. I particularly enjoy proofreading for publishers, though I am happy to proofread for other types of client 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 if my schedule permits. These include transcription (for example, of focus group and one-to-one interviews) and writing. I do NOT offer a whole publishing/book production service for self-publishing authors, preferring to focus on the language aspects of editing and proofreading when manuscripts are nearing 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.
