I am Gill Pavey and I offer copywriting, proofreading and copy-editing services to authors, students and academic writers, businesses and publishers.
I was a qualified accountant for many years, giving me specialist knowledge in accountancy and business subjects. I am highly experienced in the fields of yacht racing and cruising, dogs and other pets, and country sports for other non-fiction projects. I am able to work with dissertations and theses, magazines and fiction particularly in romance, fantasy and thriller genres.
In the 1980s I worked for Ocean Publications as an employee covering titles such as Seahorse, British Ski Magazine and the official magazine of the British Canoe Union then I moved to the Biggin Hill News newspaper Group. I have returned to the profession in recent years working as a proofreader, copy/sub editor and columnist on Show Dogs Ireland magazine for a number of years and was a freelance feature writer for Ireland’s Pets Magazine in 2009.
The copywriting service began in 2014 after completing the Copywriting Apprentice one-year course with distinction. I have regular clients across Europe and specialize in web copy, press releases and mailshots.
In October 2013 I won the Theo Papthitis Small Business Sunday Award, and have won another six business awards since.

Gill Pavey MSc abridged, edited and proofread my doctoral and postdoctoral theses thereby structuring it into book readership format. This was an extremely challenging and difficult assignment for her as my book was intended for general readership.
Gill completed this assignment to the highest standard possible. I was impressed by her professionalism and the accuracy, detail and quality of her approach to my work in producing a book now suitable for general readership.
I strongly recommend Gill Pavey to any potential author intending to write and produce a book for general readership, or for specialised readership. The quality of her work is of the highest order ensuring phraseology and language accuracy, layout and appropriate referencing. I recommend her highly without reservation.
