Red pencil not quite a pointy stick

I tend to edit more than I proofread, but following you’ll find a very small selection.

Proofreading is the final check, once the material is ready to be published. Often an author will believe they need a proofread, when an edit is really needed. If in doubt I’ll be happy to talk to you to see what stage of the editing process you are at.

I proofread for businesses as well as individual authors and publishers.

You’ll find me in these directories:

CIEP (Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading) 

PTC (The Publishing Training Centre)

ProCopywriters (the alliance of commercial writers)
