What you get with this Offer

Do you have a report, paper or other piece of writing that needs to be absolutely perfect? However good your writing skills are, a small investment in that extra pair of eyes gives your confidence, and your chances of impressing, a real boost. Is your text advertising your business? Make sure you're remembered for the right reasons. Is it a key report for your superiors? Make sure their thoughts are turning to promotion, not getting out the red pen. Or perhaps you need my services for your academic work - let your argument and ideas shine, helped along by perfect spelling and grammar. Perhaps you're confident in what you're trying to say, but never were quite sure where to use a semi-colon. Let me take that worry off your hands!

Entrusting your crucial text to me is an excellent move which you can make with full confidence. I am a published and experienced editor and author, with clients including major publishing houses, top universities, academic publications and social businesses. I am a native speaker of British English and excel in particular at editing formal language to meet business or academic conventions. I hold a PhD in the humanities from the University of Cambridge.

I'll correct any little fiddly detail, from replacing a colon with a semi-colon, adding a comma where needed for clarity, to deleting an accidental double space. I can use a specific style guide if you supply me with this - otherwise, I'll use my own, which was developed for use with texts that are formal but need to be clear and easy to read. Please specify when booking if you'd like me to use US grammar and spelling, otherwise I'll assume I should follow UK rules.

What the Freelancer needs to start the work

I need your text in editable form, in a file type I can open and edit. Typically, this will be MS Word. Please contact me first if you need to use a different file type.

Please also send any style guide you'd like me to use, and state whether it's US or UK English you'd like me to use.
