I am a dedicated, reliable and affordable proofreader and copy editor, with the enthusiastic nature and keen eye of a perfectionist. I offer prompt, professional but personal service, with attention to the finest detail. I am equally comfortable editing in electronic format or on hard copy.
I have a particular passion for creative, literary and academic works, but am willing and able to tackle any subject, including scientific and technical publications. I also enjoy working with clients who have English as a second language. I am always flexible and happy to negotiate or collaborate. No job is too large or too small.
My other services include writing and re-writing in a clear, concise and engaging style. Word processing also available.
I offer very reasonable rates, with discounts for students and non-profit organisations.
