I tailor my services to each individual piece of writing, whether it requires light proofreading or substantive developmental editing and rewriting, to ensure it creates the maximum impact.
I am an experienced writer, editor, proofreader and researcher, having worked for publishing companies across the academic and commercial sectors including Oxford University Press, working with text from fiction to academic research in fields including languages, law, science and medicine.
For writers planning on self-publishing or submitting your work to a publisher, I provide a more personal editing service than any publishing company by working directly with you, the author, giving you the confidence that your work has been edited with the benefits of industry expertise, without compromising your authorial style or message.
For fiction writers, this might include improving language to create a smooth prose flow, or ironing out problems such as poor pacing, plot or thematic inconsistencies and underdeveloped characters.
In the context of academic writing, I am experienced in editing according to particular journal styles, fact-checking, and resolving issues with consistency (e.g. between tables/figures and text) and clarity.
Having worked with a range of businesses, from Public Relations to Human Resources, I understand that it is essential for the copy associated with your business, from website content to company policies, to be in-keeping with your company's outlook and image, and to be effectively targeted to the appropriate demographic. Whether your content is currently scribbles in your Notebook-Of-Important-Things (we all have one...) and needs completely re-written, you need your website content SEO-optimised, or you have written your content and need a keen eye to correct minor errors and typos, we understand that you need clean, effective copy for your business delivered quickly.
