Editing

Proofreading

Professional proofreading is a lot more than just spotting the odd spelling mistake. A lack of accuracy in your writing at best looks careless and at worst hinders the expression of meaning. I can make sure that your text is crystal clear and makes the right impression.

 

My proofreading service includes correction of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and adherence to style guides. I also check overall consistency and clarity. 

Copy Editing

Copy editing is a more in-depth edit that helps with overall readability. It includes all of the above plus fact checking, looking out for any legal issues, and suggestions to improve structure and style.

 

When editing fiction, I can also check consistency of plot, characters, narrative voice, and pacing.

Content Writing

Fashion Blog

It can be hard to keep up with creating content while managing the day-to-day of running your business. Maybe you haven’t been able to update your website in the last five years, or you don’t know where to get started creating one. Perhaps English is your second language and you lack the confidence to describe what your business does in an accessible way.

 

I can provide well-researched and effective web copy, articles, blog posts, promotional materials, and reports. I work closely with you to make sure your voice is clear in the content.

 

My specialist areas are Education, English Language and the Arts, but I’m an efficient researcher and happy to take on content writing projects from other fields.

Beta reading

As a beta reader, I approach your manuscript from the point of view of the average reader. I can give you honest feedback about characters and pacing, as well as pointing out any holes in the plot development. 

This service also includes a balanced, carefully written review on platforms such as Amazon and Goodreads.
