My name is Sam Lacey. I’m an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) and hold a Merit in the Publishing Training Centre’s Copy-Editing by Distance Learning.

I’ve spent the last 25 years wearing a publishing hat in some way, shape or form. For several years now, I have been working as a freelance editor and proofreader and I can turn my hand to anything from English Language textbooks, to websites, to novels.

I offer the following services:

• Proofreading – picking up incorrect grammar, along with errors in spelling and punctuation.

• Copy-editing – making your message clear and your text as easy as possible for your readers to navigate.

• Online editing – websites, personal or LinkedIn blogs and articles; pretty much anything you publish online.

• Re-writing – bringing existing copy up-to-date or re-drafting it to make it suitable for a different audience.

Please do get in touch! hello@copybysam.com / 07919 883874.


Sam’s proofreading services are a key part of my business. I wholeheartedly believe that you can lose clients from spelling/grammatical errors so therefore Sam proofreads all my website content and blogs or promotional literature. Sam is very reliable and has a quick turnaround of work.

I have recommended Sam to my clients and they also use her services to review their email marketing campaigns/newsletters.

An excellent proofreader and highly recommended.


I have had a long working relationship with Sam and am very happy to recommend her. She is a super person to work with – very accommodating, thoroughly reliable, efficient and conscientious.

Sam has been helping us out at Garnet Education for the last five years. She has copy-edited and/or proofread a variety of general ELT courses for both children and adults. Similarly, Sam has worked on academic (EAP) materials.

We have always been very satisfied with her work and hope to continue our close working relationship.


I asked Samantha at short notice to check and edit some work for me.

Samantha was recommended to me by another person I work with and I was over the moon with the service that I received.

Samantha is very efficient and excellent at what she does. I will be using her services now every month.
