Proofing and Editing

Sometimes YOU are the best person to write what you want to say!

Maybe you are writing about something you feel passionately about and feel the need to do it yourself. Perhaps it’s a thesis for a course which only you can do. Or, as is often the case, you find it’s just easier to write it yourself than have to explain to someone else what you want only to have to proof and edit it yourself afterwards.

Well I am happy to work that way round as well. After all, you will no doubt know your topic and subject matter far better than anyone else, but I know about words!

From basic proofing to improve grammar, spelling and punctuation, to a full editing service where I may change the odd word, paragraph order and even presentation to make your written piece come alive, I am there to help.

All changes are recorded for your approval so anything you don’t like can be changed back to a previous version.

Examples where I have helped others in this way before include:

  • Proofing a thesis prior to submission to avoid lost marks for poor grammar.
  • Editing a covering letter for a job application to make it stand out from the crowd.
  • Proofing and editing a staff handbook so that it is taken seriously rather than being dismissed as being a bit “amateurish”.
  • Editing a press release about a new product to give it some punch!
