Listed in Proofreaders / Editors
I offer a friendly, reliable and affordable proofreading and editing service for writers, publishers, students, businesses, charities and churches. I trained in proofreading with the Publishing Training Centre, qualifying with Distinction, and I have several years’ experience working in-house for a publishing company as well as freelance. I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP).
What I do
I am happy to take on projects of any size, large or small, and I can work on paper or on-screen (Word or PDF). I am experienced in proofreading and editing all kinds of material, including CVs, promotional literature, newsletters, essays and website content.
I am particularly sensitive to the needs of clients who are dyslexic or have English as an additional language, and I offer friendly, one-to-one support from start to finish.
I am used to working to strict deadlines and always deliver on time.
Calling all writers …
I am also a writer with a successful career spanning over 30 years. I love to work with writers who are preparing a manuscript for publication, whether mainstream or self-publishing. Errors don’t have to be glaring to irritate a potential publisher or reader. Let me help you to remove those mistakes and inconsistencies that are easily missed when checking your own work.
I can proofread fiction and most non-fiction. My specialist subjects include:
• Christian theology, spirituality and the church
• biblical studies
• English as an additional language
• history – ancient and modern
• popular medical literature
• health and social care
• educational materials
• environmental issues
• pet care

We’ve been using Marion’s proofreading and editing services for over a year now and are extremely happy with her work. She was our main freelancer for a very large project that lasted ten months. It was for a leading online education provider in Brazil, and the client was thrilled with the results. This was largely thanks to Marion’s hard work. She’s a very reliable, conscientious proofreader with a great eye for detail. We will be working with Marion for a long time to come!
I was very pleased with your thorough proofreading of my poems and for making my fourth book of poetry, A Wonderful World 4, now for sale on Amazon, a better book because of your own love of poetry and the English word. A signed book is on its way to you as a grateful thank you from me. Philip.
I am very pleased with the cooperation with Marion. As a foreigner I have big problems with the English language, grammar, spelling and vocabulary. Marion in a very fast and professional manner helped me correct my mistakes and explained to me her decisions. I would definitely use the Marion's services in the future!!!
When Marion proof read our website I foolishly thought she wouldn't find much on it that would need changing. I had no idea of all of the errors littering our site, the kinds of things that would annoy me on other sites! All of the changes Marion suggested were made in a clear and easy to understand way and has left us with a far more professional website. Brilliant service. Highly recommended.
We use Marion to Quality Assure our website, brochure and advertising material. Marion is meticulous in her proof reading, yet able to turn work around quickly. This is invaluable to a business where communicating clearly, well but in a timely manner with our customers is essential.
We would strongly recommend Marion!
