Hugh Jackson

Reliable, Professional Proofreader and Copy-Editor

United Kingdom

I provide a high-quality, dependable proofreading and copy-editing service. My professional background is in academia and legal services, but I have experience of reading, writing and editing publications of all types. I am a member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders and regularly accept freelance work from individuals and large publishing houses. You have already done the most important part of any project: the writing. You've worked hard at it and you've put in all the content it needs. But, like anything, a piece of writing needs to be polished before it's displayed to the world. That's where a professional proofreader and copy-editor comes in. Perhaps you're not a native English-speaker. Perhaps you are dyslexic or simply find it hard to fathom the panoply of seemingly mysterious rules and conventions that govern our language. Perhaps you want a fresh pair of eyes to pick up on what you missed or need to move on to your next project. Let me take care of it for you.
