Editing and Proofreading, Writing and Journalism

Do you need your writing tidied up?

  • Perhaps you’ve written something brilliant, but are not sure if the commas are in the right place, or your syntax is up to scratch?
  • Would you like your book copyedited before you send it to publishers?
  • Do you need a freelance proofreader/copyeditor because your regular subeditor is on leave?

I can help you!

I edit and proofread anything: books, magazine/e-zines, newsletters, articles, annual reports, and more.
