Clear, professional editing
I provide copy-editing and proofreading services to publishers, students, and businesses who require clear, professional copy.
What can I help you with?
- You have written a book and want to make sure that the grammar, spelling and punctuation are correct.
- You are creating a website and want to make sure that your writing is free from errors.
- You are a student and need to make sure that your paper is the best it can be.
What do I do?
- Developmental editing
A copy-editor works on copy that has been written or created by the author. I will look for typographical errors, read for sense, identify problems with the syntax and/or grammar, and (if necessary) mark up the typescript for a designer or printer. At this stage I might also ask you about layout or style.
A proofreader sees the copy in a near complete state. I can check copy against the original or read a finished piece of work, checking for grammatical and typographical errors. If you are a Student, please see my terms and conditions.
A developmental editor will work with what is probably a larger project right from the beginning. I work together with an author whilst the project is still in its creative stage, perhaps suggesting more fundamental changes to the work.
