If you write – at work, in class, or just ... morefor fun – you will benefit from my help. The standard of any piece of writing you produce reflects on you – and, if I’m involved, on me! Whether it’s: • a report, brochure/marketing leaflet, manual or website; • a thesis, dissertation, assignment or research proposal; • an article for a magazine or journal, a book, short story or even a blockbuster of a novel; my proofreading and copy-editing skills will help to ensure that the only thing that stands out is your message. So why use me instead of a colleague, relative or friend? Same reason you no longer let your mum cut your hair around a pudding basin! I’m a Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) with a BA (honours) in English language and literature and an MA (distinction) in literature. I’m also partway through a second BA in politics, philosophy and economics. I worked as a full-time editor for several years before turning freelance in 2009. I’m a native English speaker based in the UK, although I work with US, Australian and non-native English as well. I’ve got a handle on all the main referencing styles – Harvard, Chicago, APA, MHRA, OSCOLA – and can help you put together a house style for your business too. On top of all that, I’m efficient, friendly and flexible, so you don’t have to worry about needing a quick turnaround or chasing me for emails. I’m interested in the same thing as you – top-quality plain English delivered on time and within budget. See? Good writing is a joy to read. less
