I am PhD-educated, I hold an MA and a First Class Honours degree in History, and I have a long background in academia as a researcher, lecturer and tutor.
I provide editorial and proofreading services that conform to the highest standards. I have experience of working on a variety of texts, including fiction, non-fiction, academic writing and web content. I bring professionalism, quality and commitment to every project I take on. As an Intermediate member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, I am dedicated to upholding editorial excellence.
Depending on your project, I can offer:
-- thorough checking of spelling, punctuation, syntax and grammar;
-- content editing of language and style, with varying levels of rewriting in line with a client's wishes;
-- developmental editing of structure and organization;
-- reference- and fact-checking;
-- formatting (including Amazon Kindle and Smashwords formatting);
-- feedback and advice.
I will consider any proofreading or editorial project. In particular, I offer expertise in academic writing. As a lecturer and tutor I have advised and supported numerous students with their written assignments, and I can provide a full package of support for essay and dissertation writing. This can include general advice on how to improve academic writing.
I will also consider writing projects if I believe they match my skills and experience.
I am always willing to provide a bespoke, personalized service to clients. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss how I can help your project.
Please note: I do not take on projects if I believe that plagiarism is likely, and I refuse all projects that promote misogyny, homophobia and racism.

Excellent work with Stephen, I highly recommend work with him
Stephen did a fantastic job in editing a manuscript. I'd highly recommend his proofreading and editing skills. Thank you again, Stephen!
I think this was Stephen's first PPH gig...and I can only expect the demand for his time and skill to grow. My book is out thanks to some really great work and partnership. Clearly goes an extra mile or two to help the client and deliver his best. Thanks Chris. Great job!
