I’m a qualified proofreader and copy editor. I can spot a typo at ten paces. I’m available to help fellow writers produce polished, professionally prepared manuscripts for either self-publication or submission to traditional publishers. I offer my services at an affordable rate, and I am extremely thorough.
I can help you identify and correct typos, spelling errors, grammatical and punctuation mistakes, awkward phrasing, and formatting inconsistencies. For more examples of the kinds of things I obsessively pick up on, see my posts tagged ‘pedantry’.
My credentials include:
- A professional diploma in proofreading and copy editing
- Many years of critique experience among writers’ workshops
- Publishing credits in various online and print publications (see ‘Stories’ page for more details)
- Proficiency in both British and US English
I also proofread stories for PodCastle.
For first time clients, I offer to proofread the first five pages of your manuscript (12-pt font, double-spaced, standard manuscript format) for free, as a no-obligation sample of my services.
My charges start from around 35 pence per 300-word page (British Pounds Sterling), depending on the author’s requirements, and I will provide a full quote based on a sample excerpt from your manuscript. I am happy to take on clients from anywhere in the world as long as your manuscript is in English.
