Our services

I will be happy to work with

  • marketing and promotional literature
  • reports (e.g. annual reports, research findings etc)
  • press releases, articles, blogs, opinion pieces
  • correspondence, campaigning and public affairs material
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • speeches
  • fiction

I divide the services I can offer into four broad categories.  

  1. Writing:
  • producing finished written material for e.g. blogs, articles, B2B communications, marketing literature etc., tailored to a detailed brief from you, the client
  1. Copy-editing:
  • getting involved early in the process, dealing with your first draft or ‘raw’ material and working closely with authors and editors through the various stages of the process
  • substantial restructuring and rewriting where necessary
  • rewriting copy produced by non-native English speakers
  • ‘translating’ technical or complex work into accessible language for non-expert audiences
  1. Proof-editing:
  • halfway between editing and proofreading: some rewriting and reordering if necessary
  • collating contributions from different contributors and ensuring the style and format of the final piece is consistent throughout
  • marking up text for a typesetter
  1. Proofreading:  
  • the vital check for the accuracy of spelling and punctuation
  • that essential ‘extra pair of eyes’ to check that it all makes sense and that the formatting and presentation are consistent
  • proofreading ‘to copy’ (checking the final version matches the original)

I will be happy to work on paper or screen, marking up corrections and changes any way the client requires.  I can also use the BSI proof-correction marks if needed.   

 

All work will be done in accordance with the Society for Editors and Proofreaders' Code of Practice.  Click here for further details
